Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.
Mild scoliosis should not be of any concern and you would be fit for the job of salesman.
However, in severe cases of scoliosis, it may affect your walking and standing and hinder in your job.
You may meet an orthopedic surgeon for a definite opinion.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
