When talking about changing careers or upskilling, many people immediately turn to technology. Becoming a software developer, UX designer, or data analyst makes for a lasting and promising career. However, working in technology doesn’t mean you need to be in a more technical role. Technology companies and startups need a variety of players beyond those building the product and there’s one career that thousands of people are skilling into.
If you’re looking for a career that gives you a great income and the chance to truly succeed, look no further than technology sales. A career in technology sales can provide you with impressive opportunities and the skills needed to succeed in your professional life. Mastering sales skills can lead to all sorts of job options, whether that’s as an account executive closing deals, a sales engineer who works for independent sales firms, or a software sales representative leading others to success. The technology sales field is a vibrant and fast-paced one, full of excitement and opportunity. As a technology sales professional, you’ll enjoy career growth, financial stability, and unmatched income potential.
Designed for part-time learners seeking a career in technology sales, our 13-week online program enables students to partner with expert technology and sales instructors to develop an understanding of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Blockchain, Cloud, Cyber Security, Internet of Things (IoT), and the overall global digital economy.
With this foundation, students explore technology sales roles and apply sales skill applications through real-world employer role-play simulations and the use of sales tools and technology.
