What does a Sales Analyst do?
A sales analyst evaluates and identifies trends in sales by analyzing industry data, from both within a company and outside. This involves collecting and examining data and using the information gathered to create coherent, intelligent reports, then presenting your reports to your team and to management.
The minimum education required by many companies is a bachelor's degree in accounting, marketing or another related field. A successful sales analyst will also be highly motivated, a self-starter and a great team player. High standards and attention to detail are a must in order to produce quality work.
