The author employs a practical, hands-on approach, enabling readers to develop valuable professional and interpersonal skills and to improve their options for obtaining sales positions. Underwriting 101 covers the activities involved in sales work, such as developing sales kits and presentations, handling objections, writing proposals, closing, and preparing underwriting announcements. Role-playing, sales promotion, résumé preparation, and interviewing are also covered.

Special features include:

*comments from former students who have secured sales positions upon completion of the course;
*underwriting announcement guidelines for FCC conformation; and
