Our sales recruiters say fall and winter are busy hiring seasons in the sales industry. Everyone is back from summer vacation and companies are ramping up for the busy holiday season ahead. Many also have new budgets and are looking to fortify their sales team for the coming year. This also means sales recruiters are busy working with employers and candidates alike. 

If you are a sales candidate who is considering making a move, then you’d be interested to know some of the sales jobs that are in high demand this fall and winter. Well, our sales recruiters just so happen to have created a list outlining some top sales jobs. 

1. Seasonal sales representative roles

Sales headhunters say seasonal sales jobs are aplenty this time of the year. Retail companies are building up their sales force for the busiest time of the year. Many of these jobs are temporary and retail-focused. But there are also a lot of roles that could lead to something more in the new year. Apply for these jobs if you are new to the industry, looking to break into the sales industry, or if you are looking to get your foot in the door with a specific company. 

2. Donor relations

Enjoy fundraising? Nonprofit and academic institutions rely on donations and major gifts from the community and alumni. Donor relations professionals work to build relationships with potential donors. While it’s not a traditional sales role, the same type of skillset is required. It’s a great opportunity to get entrenched in a big charity of university and then work your way up. 

3. Account executives

Customer relations have never been more important. As a sales account executive, you’ll work with some of your company’s top accounts and work on fostering strong relationships. Your job is to provide ongoing sales support and ensure the client is in a position to renew or increase their business each year.

4. E-commerce sales specialists

We’ve all seen a huge spike in online business since the pandemic. Online shopping and digital sales only continue to increase as we come toward the end of 2022. As an online sales specialist, you work with customers online and provide digital support to create an engaging online shopping experience. You’ll help guide clients through the buying process.

5. Sales directors

With many companies hiring to fill out sales teams, they also need people to manage these teams. Sales directors manage the sale function, track performance, set sales goals and objectives and provide support to sales teams. This is an ideal role for experienced sales professionals who have strong leadership skills.
