Former Rep Credits CUTCO With Her Success

Former CUTCO sales rep Jaime Nespor has a resume that's impressive at any age. Business savvy, sales skills and management experience all by the time she was 22 and all thanks to her two years selling CUTCO Cutlery in the Baltimore area.

That resume and the experience behind it helped her land a job usually reserved for people older than her - account executive for Baltimore Smart CEO magazine.

But to her it's not just about a great-looking resume. Jaime said she places greater value in the skills she gained selling CUTCO.

"It's not just about the resume, it's about what I learned," she said. And what did she learn? Sales techniques, how to deal with people, team work, self confidence, independence and the power of a positive attitude.

"I just took all the training I got with (CUTCO) and went out there and started my own business from scratch," she said. "It was definitely a growing experience." - Jaime Nespor

"Before Vector I had no idea how to present myself or how to talk to people on a professional level," she said. "I learned skills they don't teach you in the classroom."

As a business major at Towson University in Baltimore, Jaime took a job with Vector Marketing as a CUTCO sales rep in 2001, the summer between her sophomore and junior years. During her time selling CUTCO she work her way up to Branch Manager her second summer then on to Division Sales Manager.

She describes her foray into management as "the most amazing experience of my life." As a Branch Manager of a small office in Salsibury, MD, she was required to find an office, negotiate a lease, hire a receptionist and train staff. These were things she wouldn't have experienced at a typical summer job.

"I just took all the training I got with (CUTCO) and went out there and started my own business from scratch," she said. "It was definitely a growing experience."

She reached the goals she set for herself and her office and ranked fourth among branches in that division. Making it an even better experience was the support she received from her parents.

"Even if this opportunity didn't pay a cent, my father said the experience alone would be worth it," she said.

Where would she be today if she hadn't answered a Vector ad in a local Pennysaver? She can't really say, but she does know she wouldn't be as happy or successful.

"Selling CUTCO I learned skills I need for life. I wouldn't be here without it, I can tell you that," she said.
