Advertising Sales Agent Jobs
Hiring An Ad Agency • Ad Managers • Ad Agents
While a college degree is not necessary, most organizations prefer advertising sales representatives that possess a bachelor's degree or higher, with concentration in business, communication, marketing, and advertising. On-the-job mentoring is also a common way for ad sales agents to gain experience. However, while ad agencies do look for education and experience, when all is said and done the sales agent's ability to sell is the most important attribute.
The work environment for advertising agents tends to be stressful, as their ability to remain in the job depends upon their ability to sell. Advertising sales reps usually have to meet set quotas, and also face frequent rejection. They typically have flexible schedules, but most work irregular, and sometimes long, hours.
Due to the growth of the Internet and new advertising opportunities there, the number of advertising sales jobs is expected to grow. As new places to advertise are introduced, new job opportunities will occur.
