Abstract: This research measures perceptual differences between sales and sales careers among business students studying in the United States, Switzerland, and Turkey. Earlier studies indicate that selling and a sales career are not viewed favorably by students in the United States and several other countries. This study expands on prior studies by comparing perceptions of students in the United States to students in two European nations. A total of 867 business students were sur- veyed in the three countries using variables identified in previous research. The findings indicate that nationality is associated with students’ perception of sales jobs and feelings about selling.
