Anyone in pre-sales here? Looking for examples of career paths people have gone down post a pre-sales/technical sales role and how you liked it? I’m struggling to figure out what do to next. I don’t have any interest in people management and my leadership is trying to push me in that direction. I have been exploring product management as a new path but at Salesforce it feels more like project management. I’m curious to hear what have others done. Thanks!
Technical sales people are awesome. They can become great sales people and they can also become decent product managers. You are at a classic cusp. Do you want to augment your tech and org skills or do you want to work on the people skills more? Either ways you will have to manage people unless you become an account manager and go down that path. There is no one answer to your question as it requires a dialogue. I can post more depending on your reply.
