Sales agents are typically male. Females are very rare: perhaps only 5% to 10% of agents are female.
Sales agents are typically aged 40-70, with the average around 55. Only a few self-employed commission-only sales reps are in their 30’s and fewer still in their 20’s. Many are well into their 60’s and 70’s.
Typically, sales agents are ex-sales professionals. Some may have risen to managerial positions, and a few will have been at director level.
But not always: sales agents come from many walks of life. It is extremely difficult to generalise about sales agents. A roomful of sales agents will consist of a very varied and colourful mixture of people from all backgrounds.
