Yesterday the unthinkable happened to me. I was downsized from a job that I really loved. Unfortunately these things are numbers games and are never any reflection on the individual. I just happened to have a low number in the pecking order. Mabe a dozen or so others got the same news in other areas of the country. My sales manager and vice president are both sick over having to do this, but it's not their choice. My VP was very sincere in saying that if there's any way to bring me back they would do so. However, the reality is those things never happen.
Bottom line is I'm looking for work. If anybody knows of a telecom related sales position in the New Jersey-New York area, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks guys, and I hope none of you ever get caught the same way.

It is not easy, but perhaps you and others in similarly precarious positions should consider independent agency. The greatest advantage to independent agency is that you control your business destiny.
Perhaps you and others who work for larger telecom companies - especially in sales - should learn more about companies that stress agency sales.
In the US we use PowerNet Global and Opex and Tel3Advantage.
While our stress is on customers making international calls and on international services, there are quite a few carriers and master agencies that highlight data and/or voice - both dedicated and switched.
You can find many in Phone-Plus magazine and via other sources.
It is certainly not easy, but after you build it the business will be yours.
