Dear Sales Professional,

The more you believe in what you are selling, the more of it you will sell. That’s why a sales career with Indiana Memorial Group is such a great opportunity. At first, it seems pretty strange to think about selling funeral and cemetery products and services. After a while, you realize that we are not really selling “stuff,” we are sharing our story that arranging for funeral and burial space in advance of need makes a lot of sense.

By making arrangements in advance, families freeze the cost of their funeral forever. They do not leave the burden of making and paying for these arrangements to their children or family. Families save money because we provide discounts for families that plan in advance. They also can make easy monthly payments instead of having to pay cash when they are making funeral arrangements at the time of need.

Finally and most importantly, families who plan in advance can do so without the emotional turmoil of making emergency funeral arrangements. They buy only what they decide they need, together without the pressure of at-need arrangements. In fact, our experience is that when families get the chance to decide what they want together, in advance, they often spend much less than they do during an emergency when everything has to be done in a hurry and no one really knows what the person really would have wanted.

For generations, the management of Indiana Memorial Group has dedicated itself to one simple idea—provide peace of mind by helping people to make final arrangements in advance. In the process, we have helped tens of thousands of families eliminate both the unnecessary emotional and financial burden of at-need arrangements.

A career opportunity with Indiana Memorial Group is something you can really believe in and that belief could make you more successful than you ever dreamed possible.
