I have consulting and tech experience and I’m looking to pivot into tech sales. Does anyone think this is doable and have any suggestions for companies to look into? I’ve found that most JDs require a certain number of years of tech sales experience, but I think I have transferable skills. Also curious if anyone else has made that pivot
