Uhhh...if you are a closer in tech sales you can make a lot more than $100k. Now this is a skill but my gut is Olaz may have the DNA for it.plantingourpennies wrote:I made that amount in my first full year of technology sales.
Important to note that most technology sales don't require an understanding of technology; the soft skills of the humanities are what recruiters look for.
I've known some closers in semiconductor equipment sales and they cleaned up. I'm talking $500-$700k a year. They had technical knowledge about their product. There is no substitute for knowing your customer, his job and what your tool can do for him. Could they design a wafer test tool? No. But yes, mostly they knew how to close.
I watched a department of these guys sell my product and I can say one guy took 90% of the business. He was very likeable. The other guys made almost no sales. It was one of those winner take all games.
