BUAD 304 12:00pm Monday Lab Jenny Xu Assignment #1 J&J Automotive Sales 1. All stereotypes begin with some sort of truth. It starts with one bad experience which then gets engrained into the mind of whoever had the experience. In the case of the used- car salesmen stereotype, someone may have had a bad experience with a sleazy used-car salesman and from then on expected every car salesman to be the same. After that experience, the person may have gone to a different car salesman expecting him to be the same. With this preconceived notion, he or she selectively perceived the qualities of the salesman which matched with his or her previous impression. Pretty soon the stereotype developed from the individual level when people who had had similar experiences began talking. Once the “untrustworthy used-car salesman” got big enough, the media started to play a role. The media plays a significantly influential role in society, whether we like to think so or not. Because of this, car salesmen got a bad reputation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
