What Else Do I Need to Know?

  • The Wholesale Sector is primarily comprised of small business. More than 150 businesses in the sector (76.3%) employer fewer than five people.
  • Employment Outlook for Corporate Sales Managers in the Ottawa Economic Region is fair.
  • In the increasingly globalised and competitive business environment, along with changing consumer needs, companies are depending more on effective marketing strategies to remain viable, which supports demand for this occupation. Over the past decade spending on marketing related activities in Canada grew significantly, with Ontario being the major market for these activities.
  • Employment requirements for this occupation will be affected by technological advancement, as most employers adapt digital marketing techniques to expand their market reach. Sales, marketing and advertising managers with knowledge of internet and/or mobile technologies and with at least five years’ industry relevant experience will have improved job prospects. An understanding of various cultures is also an asset in securing employment, as many businesses target newcomers to Canada or foreign consumers. Given the rise of digital marketing, employment opportunities will be less favourable for those who work among hard-copy publishers of newspapers, periodicals, books and directories. Several of these operations have reduced staff or closed across the province over the last few years.
