How to become an Advertising Sales Person

A college degree in business or related field, though not required, is preferred by many employers who are looking to hire advertising sales representatives. Taking classes in communications, marketing, advertising, and business can be helpful for anyone wishing to enter the field of advertising. More than ever before, computer literacy is extremely helpful for anyone wishing to become an advertising sales representative, as so much advertising is done on the Internet.

Others work for specific advertising firms, and often receive a base salary and possibly a commission, while the firm receives the profits.

What Skills or Qualities does one need to get into Advertising Sales?
