I've been thinking a lot about what I want to do next and what type of companies I'd like to work for, I recently applied to Jr Sales Engineer position at a large software company and the role seemed like a great opportunity. For whatever reason, they didn't pick me as their candidate.
I used this resume to get my foot in the door, but as you can tell I have no sales exp other than recommending softwares to acquaintances and colleagues family and friends. I feel that this only gets me so far.
What routes to an entry-level job as a Sales Engineer are available to someone without prior sales experience or training (e.g. classroom training? online certification? internship? highlighting analogous experience on resume)?
