I’m curious what non sales positions people from sales transfer into. Currently a sales rep at a cybersecurity firm but am interested in exploring industries that have a bit less stress involved.

IT Procurement - work for a customer helping them get the best deal.

Generally speaking, marketing is seamless transition in which your experience in sales will help. Otherwise, I’d recommend a CSM position in which you can help grow accounts rather than hard closing.

So my doubts are - Can I avail tax benefits (like home loan) before construction? If I take the loan just to enjoy tax benefits then how much loan should I take at most? Have only ~68k EPF in 80C
