Sales Professional Seeking Technical Direction

By kyledchristian ·

I am a career sales person (15 Years) looking to shift my career. My ultimate goal is to enter into a pre-sales/technical account management/Sales Engineer positon where I am not abondonaing my sales tenure and still working with sales people, but just not chaseing the carrot so to speak.

I am taking this year off to go to school and have been advised to take MCITP, CCNA, and Networking + certificates to quickly get ramped and able to jump into this type of role.

I could REALLY use some career advice from someone as to what certificates would carry the greatest power. I don't have 4 years to get my BA in Computer Science and have been advised this would get my foot in the door. I have begun the Networking + studies and am progressing well but hitting major brain blocks on the MCITP Active Directory class!

- ANY advice would be much appreciated.

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .
