Sales Careers: What’s Happening Now and What’s The Outlook Looking Forward


Nothing drives growth and market share better than a strong sales team. We know this because the Hirewell recruiting teams have placed dozens of each type of sales positions for organizations, big and small, over the past 12 months, and we see no sign of this trend slowing. What we also see, is that the highest demand for new sales hires is coming from companies ranging from $5-$50 million in revenue. These organizations typically have a small sales team in place and have brought in a leader to help them get to the next level. But what does this mean for your organization and how might you proceed as you consider building out your sales team? You can begin by asking yourself the following:

  1. Is it the right time for you to expand your sales team?
  2. How do you want to structure your sales team?
  3. How do you develop a plan to fill these positions?
  4. What is the outlook for sales positions going forward?
