Now, this goes for Marketing or Business administration for college as well. It doesn’t matter what type of education level you want to go into; I just wanted to discuss this topic generally if you are in high school or a mature student looking to go back to school, here is my take on what I would do to land a great job in sales.
Choosing a degree for your future is not easy, and sometimes you overthink your choice because it is 3-5 years of your life, and you don’t want to feel like it was wasted years.
When you enroll in any business degree or diploma in Canada, the first 1-2 years will generally be very similar regardless of your major. You will have a mix of marketing, business law, operations, finance, etc. At this point, you can get an idea of what courses you enjoy and decide on what you want to major in.
In my YouTube video, I will discuss the differences from a sales perspective as well as salaries.
Noted in my Video:
Now, let’s discuss income. The average income per year in Canada for a Marketing Role is $49,981 found at www.payscale.com. When I researched the average for a sales executive, it showed $78,000. Of course, you don’t want to decide on a job based solely on income, but it does help!
