Advertising Salesperson

Projected hiring growth: 20%
Income growth potential: 309%
Salary range: $23,000 to $94,000

As companies shift from survival mode to growth mode, they’re going to be looking to hire people to help them achieve that growth. And for many companies, that starts with advertising sales.

The annual salary for an advertising salesperson starts around $23,000 but can grow to $94,000 or more, according to CareerCast.

And, like their Wall Street counterparts, ad sales people aren’t required to have specific educational requirements. But if you want to max out that earnings potential, you’re going to have to know how to sell a man the shirt off his back!
