Our commercial organization is focused on the marketing and sales of new products and technologies, as well as on the support of existing products. We have a wide array of businesses including: Crop Protection, Seed, Specialty Non-Crop markets such as range and pasture and industrial vegetation management, and Urban Pest Management.

The largest majority of our entry-level positions in Sales and Marketing are as a Sales Trainee or Representative, roles that quickly provide a strong knowledge of our products. To have a successful sales career at Dow AgroSciences, you need to be a geographically mobile, motivated self-starter who gets things done.

You also need to be able to analyze market needs and develop and implement strategic plans accordingly.
One of the essential prerequisites for a sales position is a high level of motivation to achieve goals and a corresponding willingness to accept accountability for job performance, personal development into development for future leadership roles.
Additionally, Dow AgroSciences hired talented sales and marketing professionals with experience. Experienced sales positions are virtual, customer-focused and draw upon strong agronomic capabilities. Experienced marketing positions can also be office based, product and market-focused and draw upon strong backgrounds in communications, finance, analytics, sales or marketing.
Most employees in our commercial function begin with our company as a Sales Representative, working as a valued consultant with customers, helping them identify challenges and finding solutions. After proving yourself as a top-performing Sales Representative, you may choose between continuing to grow professionally in a sales position such as Senior Sales Specialist, Account Manager, Customer Agronomist or follow a developmental career path to future leadership.
This could include a future in Project Management, Marketing Communications or as a Marketing Specialist. Experienced marketing professionals often enter the organization into these developmental roles. From there you can advance to District Sales Manager, Local Business Unit Leader, Global Business Leader, overseas assignments or many other key corporate positions. Also common are moves over into other functional and developmental roles such as finance, human resources, customer service and much more.
