Currently we are working with multiple translation vendors from Asia and Europe who are looking to hire US sales people to gain in-roads in the US market.  
The challenges for global vendors trying to penetrate the US market are numerous:  relevant marketing materials, ongoing PR, competing without name recognition, leveraging connections outside the US, turnaround times for production requests.  
US sales people who can help with any or all of the above issues make themselves invaluable to an overseas vendor looking to enter the US market.
