You're right, you're probably not smart. The funny thing about that is it usually doesn't matter. In the real world, successful people often aren't the smartest people, but they do know how to work hard.i can spill the beans now....
it was specialized and they needed a sale rep in morgan hill.
i sent the hr my resume. he and the hiring manager looked it over and decided i did not have the experience for the job but im not really surprised.
oh, to the all the people that made comments about me not using SHIFT and stuff, its a bike forum so i dont care if i sound smart lol
even though im probably not....
Specialized HQ is in Morgan Hill. They're looking for a regional sales rep, not a floor sales associate like you'd find at a normal bike shop. It's not a big surprise you didn't get the job - there are people with many years of experience working in the industry who apply for jobs like that.
You really need to learn how to wrench. Your ability to flip bikes is limited by your lack of knowledge. Since knowledge is free, go buy a set of tools and get started. Door-to-door bike service may work well too, since you already have a client base.
Year before last I made over $10k flipping a handful of bikes in my free time, probably 2 hours per week average (aside from my 40hr/week job.) The only difference between you and me is that I had the motivation to teach myself how to work on bikes.
