Currently in Tech/Saas Sales, and have been in sales for a little over 2 years now. I don’t like it, and have considered pivoting into front-end development as it seems very interesting to me with a lot of career potential. Any recommendations on how to do so with little to no experience? Where to start?

I’ve been thinking about pivoting into tech sales for the $$$, may I ask why you don’t like/enjoy it?

For me it is more a clash of personality. I don’t thrive off of the sales role, and the face-to-face client engagement. I’d rather be building the product or solution than selling it. But there’s definitely money to be made (unfortunately my current position doesn’t offer commission either which is another downside)

So, I'm happy at my current job and have been there about 18 months. Our pay is probably 15% below market (AmLaw 100) but so are our billable requirements. An interview for another firm kind of fell into my lap, and I'm debating whether to take it just for the sake of seeing what market really is. Is there something shady about interviewing somewhere you're not totally committed to accepting an offer from?
