Sales Management

Employment

Every company, regardless of industry, needs sales professionals to grow an organization's profits. Because of this, students with a sales-related degree have broad career options. According to U.S DOL Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for sales managers is expected to grow 12 percent in the U.S. by the year 2020. BLS: "As the economy grows, organizations will focus on generating new sales and will look to their sales strategy as a way to increase competitiveness."

It is hard to describe a typical day for a salesperson because every day can be different. One day you could search the Internet for prospective clients. The next few days may be spent calling these prospective clients and then an entire week may be in face-to-face sales calls. On other days, you could write up sales-call reports and prepare proposals for clients. Some sales positions allow you to work out of your home office while others require traveling.
