Salesperson Jobs

Salesperson Job Overview

The Sales world is one of the largest industries in the world. It includes the men and women making sales to others, the models advertising products to shoppers and the cashiers working in stores. Salespersons often work for a specific company and sell products to other businesses. They might sell wholesale manufacturing products, new medications, office supplies, advertising space or services. Inbound Sales reps sell products to those who call into the company. Outbound Sales reps make calls and generate leads that can lead to future sales.

Salesperson Job Education Requirements

Most Salesperson jobs require no formal education or training. Those fresh out of high school and those with a GED certificate can walk into a company and apply for a position as a cashier, advertising sales agent or insurance agent. Those interested in selling real estate must have a license from the state, and getting that license usually requires taking college classes and passing a state licensing examination. Sales engineers, commodities traders and manufacturing sales agents often need a college degree. Pharmaceutical agents and those selling medical supplies often need both a bachelor's degree in a medical field and some experience with the products they sell. Sales representatives must also have good customer service skills and a strong personality.

Salesperson Job Market

The future outlook for the Sales industry is good. According to statistics, retail Sales rep jobs will increase by 10 percent between 2012 and 2022, which is as fast as average. This means that the field will add more than 450,000 jobs to the already 4.5 million jobs available. Other Sales fields will likely increase at a similar rate. Those with Sales experience may also look at Field Sales Representative jobs and Sales Manager jobs.

Salesperson Job Salary Information

Sales representatives in the United States earn a median annual salary of $53,000, but those workers can earn up to six figures a year. Some jobs pay a base salary per hour or a set annual salary. Other jobs award Sales reps a commission for each sale they make, which can increase the earning potential.
