Great question! A recent graduate with no sales experience but tonnes of energy and enthusiasm should expect a salary range from $25-45k for their first role. Sales roles should also offer a commission/bonus that rewards performance. If you achieve your annual targets as a new sales rep, you should expect a total income ranging from $40-60k in your first year.
