Professional Sales

Professional salespeople play a critical role in the marketing of goods and services. They represent firms that produce those goods and services and connect them with other firms that need them. These buyer-seller relationships exist in every industry, so positions in Professional Sales are ubiquitous across the entire economy. Labor demand for this lucrative profession is projected to grow more quickly than the overall job market.
