How did you get your start doing media buyer work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

Selling radio was a great gateway for me. To understand both sides of the playing field will help you get to your goals. Now I work from home and make a very comfortable living working with some great people...but it didn't come easy. Media sales is very challenging and you need to be successful at that which should lead to building positive relationships on the agency side. Building relationships with the small agencies while you are selling is key. Those will be the people that hire you later for your expertise and familiarity to your work ethic. Those relationships come from bringing good ideas with the best intentions for the success of the client, being persistent and being fun to work with.
