Export-Import Specialists

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment of wholesale and manufacturing sales representatives will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022. Opportunities in the export-import field should grow at an average rate during this same time frame. Employment stability in this field is largely dependent on general economic conditions, and job prospects will vary from industry to industry and firm to firm. For example, it may be harder to find work as a textile wholesaler representing a U.S. firm than as a heavy machinery wholesaler. Manufacturers are cutting costs and boosting revenue by hiring independent sales agencies to sell their products on a fee or commission basis. Strong employment growth in these independent agencies is expected in the coming years, according to the DOL. The wholesale electronic markets are also expected to offer steady job opportunities for sales representatives.
