Do you already love being around cars? Do you get that excited feeling just being near a new car? Why not make car sales and leasing a career?

To earn a sale and – even more important – earn referrals and repeat sales, dealerships need expert sales staff who have the skills required to achieve extremely high levels of customer service and satisfaction. Anyone who can deliver this performance is going to be in high demand because potential employers understand their long-term success depends in large part on building and maintaining a strong sales force. With all the restructuring in the automotive industry, some people are questioning whether it still pays to train for a car salesman job. They couldn’t be more wrong. There is still strong demand for well trained car salesman, as car sales continue to grow. Salesmen, in fact, can earn a very high paying salary for a rewarding career.

There’s more good news, too, for anyone searching for auto sales training. Economic forecasts indicate that sales and service sectors are the leaders in new job creation and will account for 31% of all new jobs in the next decade. It’s also important to know that Japanese and European auto assemblers have become well established in North America, creating even more need for well-trained car salesmen.

You know what happens when demand for a specific job goes up? Salaries also go up too. Overall, there are three key factors that will drive up the earning potential of a qualified car salesman salary: a shortage of effective well-training automotive sales professions; an economy-wide shortage of sales reps in all industry categories; and the fact that 45% of the individuals in Sales and Service, and Business, Finance and Administration jobs are expected to retire in the next five years, according to Service Canada.

So what’s the bottom line? A car salesman salary could be very attractive and top performers can expect to earn as much as than $60,000 per year – or more.
