Record Label Salesperson

Representing the record label, the salesperson is responsible for establishing relationships with retail stores, rack jobbers, and online outlets to set up channels of distribution for album sales. He or she secures contracts for distribution, oversees the delivery order to provide the merchant with product, and continues to service the account as necessary.

Film Sales Agent

Independent filmmakers can spend years coming up with the perfect idea, scraping together the funding to shoot, and finally completing that masterpiece—but the film may be relegated to the shelf if it cannot be sold to exhibitors. Film sales agents represent filmmakers in need of a distribution agreement.

Rack Jobber

Yes, this is a real job. Rack jobbers are the music (or games) industry equivalent of door-to-door salesmen, independent suppliers who provide CDs and video games to secondary markets like department stores, clothing stores, or coffee shops.
