Have you ever wondered what career is the best to advance your career the quickest, while making good money and growing your wealth?
Well have a good look at the below graphs across all South African Provinces, and you will clearly see that if you master the art of sales you will be in pole position to score the big bucks.
Career Junction released its salary review for South Africa, listing the salary ranges for 10 sectors across the country.
Here’s the lowdown, focusing on three provinces, courtesy of BusinessTech:
Gauteng, for numerous reasons, tops all but one of the 10 sectors in terms of best pay. The province contributes approximately 35% to the economic output of South Africa – and has the highest concentration of businesses head offices.
The one category in which Gauteng loses out is in Warehousing, where the Western Cape sees the highest regional difference in pay, at 6.5% higher than the average.
However, the province only sees pay higher than the average in one other category (ICT), with all other job categories in the Western Cape lower than the national average.
Looking at KwaZulu Natal, the province’s average pay is lower than the national average in every category (though there was not enough data to determine the average in Marketing).
Here are some informative comparative graphs:
Based on over 30 000 job listings on the site, Career Junction took an average of every salary offered (on a monthly basis and both skilled and senior positions) and, together with the region, listed them comparatively:
While many other industries certainly can offer higher salaries, remember that a salary is often capped, while sales, if you get to master your craft will always offer you the ability to earn unlimited income, secondly, while many other professions require some sort of degree or advanced qualification, this is not always achievable, thus again sales offers a low barrier to entry and your success is then dependent upon your work ethic, attitude and your personality.
Top sales professionals are the highest income earners, are always in demand across just about all sectors of business, and are hardly ever unemployed.
