    I recently graduated from college with a History degree and no real plans of teaching. My plan was to leave UPS after school but I've decided to try and get promoted to a sales representative position. I turned my letter in yesterday not knowing what to expect or even what my chances would be? Does anyone know what I can do to increase my chances?

    Why sales?? I would go into operations that's where the real glory is. They treat them like valuable commodities and are very appreciated.

    You've got hot sales women? I've never seen any hot sales women at ups. I've always wondered why they don't go more in that direction I think it would be beneficial.

    Make the current sales rep disappear? Sounds like the supply is greater than the demand! We've had the same sales guys since before I was hired here!

    Since you brought up the Was of 1812, there is a commemorative plaque half a mile down the road from me for this Battle. Sackets Harbor holds a re-enactment every year. Good block party, afterwards.

    The Battle of Big Sandy Creek
    was fought in northwestern New York on May 29–30, 1814, during the War of 1812. The battle was an American victory in which American militia and Oneida Indians launched a surprise attack on British soldiers who were chasing them inland from Lake Ontario.

    [h=2][edit]Background[/h]After the successful attack on Fort Oswego on May 5–6, 1814, the British withdrew to the Galloo Islands in northern Lake Ontario where they could monitor and intercept any supplies on their way north to Sackets Harbor, New York. At the American ship yards in Sackets Harbor, two brigs, the USS Jefferson and theJones, and a frigate, the Superior, waited for armament and rigging necessary for their launch. The supplies needed to outfit the ships had been transported from the Brooklyn Naval Yards in New York City to Albany, New York, and from Albany up the Mohawk River to Wood Creek and Oneida Lake, finally arriving at theOswego River. These supplies still needed to be transported from Oswego to Sackett’s Harbor, but it needed to be done without alerting the British.
    On April 21, 1814, Commodore Isaac Chauncey sent orders from Sackets Harbor to Lieutenant Melancthon Taylor Woolsey directing him to choose five officers and twenty-five men to proceed in the USS Lady of the Lake to Oswego and then bring the shipbuilding supplies north to the shipyards.[SUP][citation needed][/SUP]
    [h=2][edit]Battle[/h]On the rainy evening of May 28, Woolsey set out with 150 riflemen under the command of Major Daniel Appling in 19 boats loaded with supplies. On the morning of May 29, they arrived at the mouth of the Big Salmon River having mysteriously lost one of their boats. This boat, discovered by the British forces, eliminated the secrecy of Wooley’s mission.
    At Big Salmon, the American forces met up with the Oneidas (estimates range from 120 to 130 Indians), who Woolsey had dispatched the previous day. The Oneidas marched north along the shore as the boats proceeded in the lake. At noon on May 29, they reached the mouth of the Big Sandy Creek. All the boats were sent as far inland as possible.[SUP][citation needed][/SUP]
    Woolsey then sent a lookout to scout for British ships. The lookout discovered that a gunboat and three barges were headed for the location of the American forces. Woolsey set out a call for the neighboring militia and hastily prepared for battle.
    At 8 a.m., the British began to cannonade the American forces from the mouth of the Big Sandy Creek. The American forces hid along the shoreline of the creek and waited for the British to advance inland. At about 10 a.m., when the British forces had progressed up the creek, the American forces rose from their concealment, and a brief ten-minute battle ensued. The British officers quickly surrendered to avoid further casualties
