Advertising sales agents work under pressure to meet sales quotas. They work in a range of industries, including advertising agencies, radio, television, and Internet publishing. Although a high school diploma is typically enough for an entry-level advertising sales position, some employers prefer applicants who have a bachelor’s degree. Sales experience and communication skills are essential. The median annual wage for advertising sales agents was $46,290 in May 2012. Commissions can make up a large percentage of a sales agent’s earnings. Employment of advertising sales agents is projected to show little or no change from 2012 to 2022.
