Welcome to our Sales Rep Jobs site. The purpose of this site is to provide a frequently updated list of current open positions for the sales representative. Our focus is on sales rep jobs which are available in the United States. Our list here includes sales positions for both inside and outside sales.

Our list of sales rep jobs consists of a page for each state, and each page combines the results from several job search engines. Our paradigm is similar to the meta-search engines like Dogpile, except here we combine the results from job search engines as opposed to regular search engines.

The sales rep jobs listed here are in the form of RSS feeds, and will be automatically updated when new jobs become available. This site is produced by IntellegoJobs, a division of Intellego Web Publishing.

Training and requirements needed:

There is no formal training required to become a sales representative, but given the high competition for this job, you would be wise to have a college degree when competing for this job. This is especially true if you would like to sell technical or scientific type products.

Very important to potential employers is previous selling experience, especially experience selling the type of product or products being sold by the potential employer. Potential employers also look at factors such as personality, the ability to sell, persuasiveness, and the ability to work well both independently and as part of a team. A proven track record of competent selling is highly desirable to potential employers.

Many companies provide formal classroom instruction followed by on-the-job training to sales trainee. Having a college degree will help you get that first sales position and can help in obtaining future positions later on as well. Selling experience becomes more important to the employer who is looking for a sales rep who can start to produce sells from the start. For more information about training required for the sales rep in the United States go to Occupational Outlook Handbook provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.





Sales Rep Jobs – Employment Growth and Outlook

In 2006, job growth for the sales representative was expected to be around 9% between 2006 and 2016, which was considered average relative to all other occupations. But this figure was produced by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics before the economic crisis became apparent, and before unemployment rose above what was expected. Many companies have reduced their work force including sales representatives leaving a lot of sales reps out of work.

When the United States starts to move out of the current economic crisis, companies will start to hire again, and then employment should pick back up for the sales representative. It is also important to remember that the sales rep is one of the most integral components of any company. A company can not produce revenue without a substantial number of workers selling the companies products. When banks again are able to provide loans to business which allows for expansion, this will result in the need to increase the size of the sales force, and employment for the sales rep will pick back up again.

It should also be noted that even during a down turn in the economy, there are still companies that still do well and their need for hiring sales representatives remains strong. Competition for these positions is keen and specific selling experience becomes even more important to the potential employer.
