This paper represents survey information designed to identify those skills and characteristics needed by undergraduates entering and advancing in agricultural sales. The top five rated traits describe a student who has a positive work attitude and is self-motivated, has the ability to work with others and be a team player, is self-confident and demonstrates loyalty to the company. Survey results indicate the educational and developmental needs of the agricultural sales undergraduate differ only slightly from any other student, regardless of his or her specialization.
