If you’re confident in your abilities and ready to accept the challenge of a career with a fluctuating salary, a recent Yahoo Education article recommends becoming a Personal Financial Advisor or Insurance Agent! (Full article may be seen here for reference http://education.yahoo.net/articles/jobs_that_pay_commissions.htm?kid=1O12Y )
Many job seekers initially shy away from the idea of a commission based career, due to that fluctuation in income which can seem frightening to some. But who doesn’t like the idea of a job that pays you based on your successes?
Laura M. Labovich, the president of the Career Strategy Group and co-author of “100 Conversations for Career Success” says that often, those who are paid on commission can make more than those on salary if they are really good and motivated.
Labovich also offers a warning about exactly which types of personalities find success in commission based jobs.
“The people who do best in commission jobs tend to have a high sense of urgency, but also a low stress threshold. These are aggressive go-getters who are self-motivating and definitely not clock-watchers,” she says.” She counters this by saying that the wrong personality type will have a rough time with the lack of security created by not receiving a steady paycheck.
All in all, the independence and high earning potential that can be found with a commission based job is very appealing to many in the work-force today.
The top 5 High-Commission Careers are: Personal Financial Advisor, Advertising Sales Agent, Insurance Agent, Real Estate Sales Agent, and a Sales Engineer.
