CAREERS WITHIN Representation


Agents represent and promote artists, performers, and athletes to prospective employers. Agents need to respond to the actions of other and coordinate activities with them. They also need to speak clearly and communicate with others.
Wholesale Buyer

Wholesale Buyers buy merchandise or commodities, other than farm products, for resale to consumers at the wholesale or retail level, including both durable and nondurable goods. Wholesale Buyers need to listen well to others and take in their information and issues. They also need to think through complex problems and develop a critical analysis of the situation and possible solutions.
