If I move from engineering to tech sales.....
Will I keep technical? I’m not a super technical guy but I’m a hack-coder with great soft skills and a good understanding of hw and sw but not an expert at either.
I’m not really looking to become the expert but I certainly like having a basic understanding of how 256QAM, database structures, and basic computer HW architecture. I like learning more about these things and I want to keep on top of the technology.
But I do want to manage technical projects and work with technical people. Would a tech Sales move be a good idea if I do want to get into management.
Basically I’m asking if I should look for more technical roles or look for things that will really people my soft skills (tech sales) if I want to manage technical stuff.
