Employment for telemarketers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. In the past, the career of telemarketer consistently ranked as a fast-growing occupation, but growth has slowed in recent years as a result of the movement of call-center jobs overseas and the implementation of the National Do Not Call Registry. The National Do Not Call Registry, a free service offered by the Federal Trade Commission since June 2003, allows consumers to add their cell phone and landline phone numbers to a do-not-call list, from which telemarketers may not call. Telemarketers with experience and a proven track record of generating sales will have the best job prospects.
