You can accept the job, and hence you have a good opportunity to get an excellent experience by reading more and more related to pump's types, materials, design, fabrication, testing, and related codes and standards. Don't Stop Reading.

Yes, take the job. You're lucky to find work in your field these days even if it is not what you might have hoped for. Work and jobs are like cherries - one leads to another and so on, and there will always be the pits - those problems we encounter are what get us to learn. Go for it! Straight ahead!

The first & only question I can think of is, do you have a better job offer ? If no is the answer then I would say take the job. As others have said any experience in the industry will be of benefit for you in the future & quite often gives you the contacts in other businesses (customers & suppliers) for future advancement in the industry.

Every job can be a stepping stone to a better job if you impress the right people along the way

NO at this time. The manner in which you wrote your posting in this Forum is terrible, and you need to seriously clean-up your grammar and spelling. It's simply atrocious! In my book you earn a Grade of "F", meaning "FAIL".

No company would want to hire an engineer that cannot communicate to perspective clients in a clear and effective manner.

I seriously hope that your Cover Letter and Resume is not full of such errors.

Is English your second language?

it is a sales job, do you want to sell things and are you up to this ??? is it salary, commission, or both ???

a job is a job, it is always easier to look for another job when you already have one :)

I suggest you take it, at the moment you very likely know very little about anything. The more you learn about the pumps you sell, the more successful you will be at selling, and you will meet technically biased people. This will be the start of lifelong learning, and maybe, one day you will be able to choose what you do.

Hi

You can take up the job. When you take up this job you are enterining into the Rotating equipment field. Technically you can learn about Pumps, Mechanical seals, seal systems, Valves and you can learn also Instrumentation if your are more interested in learning.

Also you will become a world of sales team. It is very big and handling many products.

Todays market is in the hands of good sales team.

You most hard working person with easy going with persons around you and the job. Better to have the habit of enjoying the travel. Challenge to take work-life balance.

Best wishes

Do you like to work in selling/marketing field?. If you wish to make your career in this field then take up the job. Selling is tough job and you will have many challenges in this profession. You should have good personality, and you should be good in written and oral communications. You will have to leave your ego at your home and have good patience to bear customer's harsh treatment.

You should learn the technical aspect of the product in detail for on spot clarifications to customer so to earn respect from the customer.Most of all you should be honest with customers for long term personal relationship

Fist satisfy yourself through due diligence and market surveying that this company is one of the leaders in their field and that they have a very extensive training program in the application of their product line. As a pump sales engineer you will have to study hard to become a consultant to your prospective clients in guiding them in their pump application and purchases. If you only plan to give it a year I suggest seeking a jopb doing what you have a passion for.
