KC Staff asked 8 years ago

I want to go into sales, but all of the jobs I’ve applied to are commission based. I really am not sure if it’s worth it. do you have any insight?

If you’re unsure about whether or not a commission based job is right for you, it’s probably not right. Commissions can be extremely lucrative, but they can also be hit or miss. You may have a week or two where you make a lot of money, but then you can go a week or two where you see nothing. Until you get a decent client base, and until you are comfortable going a few weeks without a paycheck, this is often uncomfortable and very frustrating for most people. With this in mind, if you are still interested in the job, go ahead and apply. If not, you may want to look elsewhere.
