Marketing at IBM
"You help company presidents
solve their information
"It's a lot of responsibility. And if you need
help, you always get it," says Earl Andrews.
"Because your success is the company's
Earl earned his B.A. in Political Science
in 1967. Today, he's a Marketing Repre-
sentative with IBM, involved in the planning,
selling and installation of data processing
Earl joined IBM because he felt the career
paths were very clearly marked. "You don't
have to be a technical genius to fit the job.
You get the training. Then on-the-job
experience. Before you know it, you're out
on your own."
Works with top management
Earl works mainly with small companies-
distribution houses, manufacturers,
printers, warehouses, electrical supply
houses and similar organizations. "I deal
with top management," he says. "It gives
me a lot of satisfaction to realize that I'm
trained to know what this president or that
vice-president is trying to learn. I help him
solve his information handling problems."
Earl's experience isn't unusual at IBM.
There are many marketing and sales repre-
sentatives who could tell you similar
experiences. And they have many kinds of
academic backgrounds: business, engi-
neering, liberal arts, science.
They not only market data processing equip-
ment as Earl does, but also IBM office
products and information records systems.
Many of the more technically inclined are
data processing Systems Engineers.
