The image of Willy Loman, the downtrodden fictional hero of Arthur Miller’s play, “Death of a Salesman,” couldn’t be further from the truth when you consider the dynamic and ever-changing role of the modern salesperson.
Whether it is real estate, motor vehicles, advertising space, or multi-million dollar aircraft, sales and selling continue to be vital to every organization. With over 14 million people employed in sales-related occupations in the United States, sales continues to be one of the top-five occupations in the country today. Even in New York state, there are almost a million people in sales! So sales and selling continue to be an in-demand skill in today’s world.
