Any suggestions on resources to learn more or is anyone’s company looking for a young professional with a great attitude for an entry level sales role? Thanks in advance!!

IBM Summit Program isn't a bad place to look if you're still early in your career. You can get in and do 6 months of a recognized sales training through their global sales school. Just need a bachelor or masters done (if you're looking at some more of the senior level sales roles). That'll prep you for tech sales.
