The author explores careers such as brand manager, salesperson, direct response copywriter, meeting planner, financial planner, paralegal and teacher. The paper relates that salespeople, which are among the highest paid professionals, are only required to have the ability to sell the product or service, not a specific major.

From the Paper:

"One hot job right now is brand manager. In the typical company, only the executive team and the brand management team have fingers in every pie. The accountants know the numbers. The sales people know what's going on in sales. The research and development types are stuck in the lab. But the brand managers are responsible for the "big picture." They coordinate everybody's efforts from production to advertising, to distribution, to finance. Brand Management staff work mostly in consumer goods companies. The typical staffer starts as a brand assistant."
