Employment Outlook
What is the difference between a job and a career?
The words career and job are very different. To be specific, a job is what you show up to for work; a career spans your lifetime and includes your education, training, professional memberships, and is something you love doing.
In Utah, most salaries are based on commission.

*Wages may vary by region. Check with brokers in your local area for accurate estimates.
