We are all used to bi-weekly paychecks and the security that comes with them. With salaried positions, the financial risk is one that the employer shoulders. As a result, the salary pay structure is such that top executives of a given company are the ones earning the lion’s share of the company’s net revenue.
With commission only jobs, each individual trader or salesperson carries their own risk as their pay is directly connected to the amount they sell. But as they say, with great risk comes great reward.
If you are competitive, self-motivated, outgoing, and resilient, taking a commission only job may be the best career move you’ll ever make. Check out the top 3 reasons commission only jobs are worth the change from a conventional salaried job!
Commission-only jobs can vary in structure and the percentage traders or salespeople make on each sale. The percentage offered may be negotiable or increase with tenure. Be sure to look out for commission jobs that have an annual cap on earnings. The best commission jobs have no limits on earning potential.
With commission-only jobs, you know how well you are doing based on the numbers you see! Your monthly income can rise and fall depending on the success of your independent endeavors with your clients. With your targets clearly outlined, you will always know just how well you are performing and where there is room for improvement!
With a commission only job, there is endless excitement. There’s really no such thing as the day-to-day routine in a trading career. You’ll be meeting new people, developing relationships, and solving new problems every day.
If a commission-only sales or trader career sounds like it might be the right fit for you, contact us today. At AIFP, trader trainees are hired into a 24-month paid internship with the expectation that they will be hired on as a trader after completing the program where they are taught the ropes of commodities trading and begin building customer relationships.
Pending a positive performance review at the completion of the internship, trainees are officially hired as traders and receive the same 100% commission pay structure as the rest of the team. Want to know more? Let’s talk!
