Shopping. It's a national pastime, something we classically overdo. But I want to delve a little further into the role fulfilled by sales representatives jobs (http://www.jobs.net/Article/CB-66-Talent-Network-Retail-Why-Sales-Pros-Will-Survive-the-Age-of-Information/) in relation to the age of information.

First, think about how you buy something. Do you go to the store? Do you ask your friends for feedback and advice? Do you go online and read the negative reviews to see what complaints you might encounter?

The world of shopping has been transforming as the technology boom affects everything in its path. But this boom raises an interesting question.

Will technology be the death of salesmen? Is the convenience of shopping online going to replace them?

I would love to hear your opinions :)
