Are all Marketing jobs based on commission?
I mean I was always told that Marketing is a salary based job at a minimum of $50,000 dollars and up annually. Now, how come the sales jobs that I'm being offered are commission only and if I don't make a sale. I don't even get paid just for the effort, and not any money at all. These are real jobs but they don't have a set base pay if I don't make a sale. I have a degree in Marketing to the first response of this question. I'm qualified for a Marketing job.

Send me your CV or resume and I'll see if I can help you. I've got a marketing research / pre-sales company and I'm looking for people. The right people of course.... cause we all have to get a return on our investment of time and effort.
