You can very well show experience of two years as DEO. This is no insignificant period. In the job market, it is very difficult to get salespersons. Therefore, I doubt whether HR will raise question on your non-Sales assignment.
In fact you could have continued in Retail Sales. Retail industry sales was booming and you left it. If you had continued by now possibly you might have become Asst Manager. You might have your own reasons like hard work or long working hours. But then these challenges are anywhere and everywhere. Anyway, even now also you can make a come back and start applying for retail sales jobs.
Last but not least you may note that for the last two years you have been doing sedentary job and the transition from DEO to highly activity oriented job like sales may appear easy but it may not be.
Thanks for guiding me. it is true,i left the retail job due to long working hours.
i have been preparing for the Government Job since i came to this profile. please suggest me whether should i continue preparing govt Job or i try to go to the retail sales as suggested.
i am also feeling that if i continue to work here the gap in the job will be increased. i am very confused, please let me know what should i do in this matter.
Your reply is solicited.
