Hey all, Looking at a move into tech sales, most likely initially SDR roles (due to no experience in tech before) does anyone have any input into particular companies or IT sectors with good future growth potential? I'm suspecting blockchain or AI? Thanks

I’d say the following taking into account growth forecasts: - Everything related to cloud (IaaS, PaaS…) - Security (ZeroTrust, SASE…) - AI/ML You can try at a system integrator or consulting company or, preferably, at a vendor.

Thanks, yes the AI/ML is definitely catching my eye for growth, do you have any recommendable companies which could be of use looking into? Thanks again for your time

Blockchain and AI get all the news. Both need heaps of infrastructure to work and the demand for infrastructure isn’t changing unless we figure out a completely new way to compute. I’d look to get as close to the infra as possible, it’s how I started less than a decade ago. I’m doing well and the sector is thriving. Of course, there are plenty of other rocket ships, but I see cloud infra like waste management, even in a down turn people still need their bins collecting.

Thanks for the insight really useful!

Have you read any of the Gartner reports re: top priorities for CIOs and CISOs? That'll tell you the markets that are hot and then you can research which companies are the leaders in those specific markets by Googling "Gartner Magic Quadrant XXX".

You can always tell when a company is ranked well by Gartner. Because they tell you immediately.

Don't aim for SDR if you have Sales experience. Aim for an AE role and highlight your integrity and speed to knowledge.
