Selling & Sales Management

Ready for Opportunity

The largest number of career opportunities for marketing majors is, by far, in the field of selling and sales management. The positions often pay very well and offer substantial autonomy. There are many different kinds of selling. There is “outside” sales, where you call on customers, and “inside” sales, where you interact with customers by phone or electronically. There is selling to businesses and selling to consumers. There is selling to new buyers and selling to existing buyers. Our selling curriculum prepares you for the full range of opportunities.

How Many Jobs Are Available?

Hundreds. These jobs are available through the Sales Career Mixer, Rockwell Career Services, personal networking, and want ads.

Who Is It Good For?

Selling is a good career choice if you: like to help people; are diligent enough to work without close supervision; are a good enough listener to understand what your customers need; and are honest and responsible, so you will keep your word to customers and put their interests first.
