Job #1: Sales Development Representative
Now, the first one that we’re gonna talk about is going to be the sales development rep. You know, I’m someone who started my career in sales, working at Oracle, so I know a lot about this particular area in tech. So if you wanna get into sales, right, technology sales, the entry-level position typically most people get into is the sales development role. And all they really is, is a person whose job it is to generate meetings with potential customers.Top 7 Highest-Paying Tech Jobs
So if I work at Oracle and my job would be, hey, I gotta call this person, email them, try to generate a meeting. And once that meeting is generated, I kind of just pass it onto the next guy who actually uses that lead and closes t
he deal. So a sales development rep is really good for anyone who’s just getting started because you don’t really need to have any prior sales experience. You can learn everything on the job. It doesn’t really matter what your education background is, to be honest, because they don’t really teach this skill set in school anyway. So a lot of companies like Oracle, Salesforce, and even startups, they know that they have to train you from the ground up.Top 7 Highest-Paying Tech Jobs
And so, if you’re trying to break into sales, sales development reps, it definitely is something I should check out. And also, they get paid high salaries, high commissions. So you might be making, let’s say like 40 to 80K your first year as a sales development rep, and not many jobs out there can promise that. So it’s definitely something I would recommend everyone check out as a high paying entry level job without sales experience.Top 7 Highest-Paying Tech Jobs
Job #2:Digital Marketer
Now, the next high paying job we’re gonna get into is gonna be the digital marketer. So, technology companies, somebody has to do the marketing, right? And there’s many different types of marketers out there.Top 7 Highest-Paying Tech Jobs
They’re paid advertising marketers, content marketers, SEO optimization marketers, email marketers, marketing for mobile apps, so many different channels you can use to market a product or service. So marketing is really good because it’s one of those jobs that don’t really require you to have a lot of background or a lot of experience, right?
So if you’re coming in as an entry-level paid advertiser, well, what experience could you get that would help you actually do well in this job? You actually just have to learn it on the job. Marketing is really great for anyone who’s just starting out because as long as you have a knack or interest in marketing, you can probably just get started.Top 7 Highest-Paying Tech Jobs
You can watch YouTube videos, read books, and really get the ball rolling and prepare enough to actually get past the interview process. And when you actually get into the job, companies understand like, hey, this guy doesn’t really know much.
I like him though. So let’s go ahead and just train them from the ground up, right? Very similar to sales in that regard. So many different types of marketing that may suit your style, so definitely check that out as well.
Job #3: Recruiter
And now, the next high paying job we have for you is actually the recruiter. Now, recruiters, in my opinion, are very similar to sales people, right? Except, the only difference is a sales person is selling a product and service, a recruiter is placing someone into a job. So the product is really that person’s career, right? To be a good recruiter, in my opinion, it’s a very similar skillset to a salesperson. You have to be able to communicate with people, be persuasive, show value, follow-up, know how to cold outreach people, get people interested, even though they have no idea who you are. And because of that, to be a recruiter, well, you don’t really need any prior experience.
Really, all you just need to have is the right attitude, the willingness to learn, just like sales, and you’ll probably be okay. And like sales, because it’s a job where you really have to put yourself out there, different companies might have different compensation plans or commission based on how many people you’re able to place into a company.
And so, if you’re someone who likes to not just get like a salary that’s fixed, your work is really judged based on your performance, and your compensation is based on that, well, recruiting is also a path you can take if you don’t want to sell products and services, but rather deal with people and help them get their dream jobs, essentially.
Job #4: Customer Success Manager
All right, so the next job that we have is gonna be the customer success manager. So, in sales, typically, you’ll have a sales person whose job it is to sell the person, the product, or service, and then they close the deal, right? Now, what happens to the customer after the deal was closed? Well, you have to make sure that customer is happy, especially in technology.
Because the way that technology works is that you don’t make all the money upfront, right? You get someone to sign a deal, the money really comes from that customer sticking with you for years to come, right? You know, in SAS, software as a service, you’re doing it usually by subscription based model, meaning you’re either paying per month or paying per year. So if you close one deal for one year and let’s say it’s like 10K, for example, if they leave after the first year, well, now you have to go over, find another customer and bring in another 10K, right? But if you keep that customer happy and they want to still continue to become a customer or retain that customership, then for the next year, that’s another 10K, and you don’t have to do any work of getting a new customer in. To make this happen and to keep the customers happy all years to come and to generate a 10K, a 10K, a 10K, a 10K, every single year, or even even sell more than that, a customer success manager is important. So a customer success manager is basically like, kind of like a sales person, but they take over the deal after the deal was closed. And their job is to make the customer happy, make sure they’re using the product, answer any of their questions that they may have, maybe even find opportunities to sell them more products and services if that’s what they need. At the end of the day, it’s just making the customer successful whatever it may be. And it’s a very relationship-based type of role.
So, similar to sales, right? They don’t really teach you how to be a customer success manager in school. They just don’t, right? So, really, it’s all about your soft skills, your ability to deal with conflict, deal with people, be persuasive, very similar to the sales skillset, except you’re not going after, trying to persuade people to buy, you’re really just helping people become more successful after they purchased your product and service. So this role of the customer success manager, it’s really good for people who are interested in working with people but don’t like the pressure of being a salesperson. So, if that suits you, that might be the perfect fit for you.
Job #5: Project Manager
Now, the next job that we have is gonna be the project manager. So, a project manager, essentially, like if you’re working at a startup, a technology company, or you have projects, right, you wanna create a new feature in your software, well, there has to be a person in charge of everybody, meaning, who’s telling the designer what to do, keeping track of the time, and are they designing the things on time, who’s keeping track of the engineers, who’s managing this project, who’s putting all the resources together. And especially if you work at larger organizations, a project manager is a hundred percent essential because somebody has to keep tabs on everything and make sure that everything goes along smoothly and goes along on time, which is very important.
Essentially, that’s a project manager’s role. Now, do you need prior experience to be a project manager? Not necessarily. But it helps to have a good understanding of the work of the people that you are managing. So you’re not really their manager, right?\
You’re not their boss, you’re more of their peer who’s kind of just organizing everything. So if you’re a project manager and you’re dealing with,
let’s say engineers, right, you definitely need to understand some level of how engineering works to be able to allocate resources and plan everything appropriately.
If you’re a project manager and you have no idea about how software works or anything like that, nobody’s gonna really take you seriously because they’re gonna think you have no idea what you’re doing. Yeah, you don’t need to code, but you need to understand like how long it takes for someone to do something, how difficult it is. If they’re trying to do something hard, is it really difficult or are they just saying that? You need to understand from high level perspective how it works. Having a little bit of coding experience might help, but is it necessary? Not necessarily, but it may help.
Job #6: Data Analyst
So the next job that we have for you that you can do without any prior experience is data analysts. At many different companies, a data analysts might be very different things, actually, right? So it’s a very general term. But essentially, if we’re to boil it down, it’s someone that looks at data and makes recommendations on what to do based on that data. So, one of my friends, he has a job working at a app company. Basically, they have this app, it’s a game, right, so it’s a racing game.
And basically, people come into the game and they play it. They spend money on it, on virtual goods, like they wanna make their car cooler or whatever it is, or they wanna skip levels or save time, these pay money for that. So his job, all he does is he looks at the data of where the money’s coming from, how are people using the app, how are they playing it. And they just look for ways to continue to monetize the customer. So if they’re like, oh, everyone is buying this thing, let’s go ahead and increase the price because they’re gonna buy it anyways. And then that’s how the company makes more money by just looking at the data, right?
Data analysts are actually very important because somebody has to look at the data and see how are people actually using our product, and what changes can we do or make to make it better, or even make more money for the company, whether it’s a app or maybe a enterprise software. It doesn’t really matter what the company is, but as long as they have data coming in, they need to see how their users are interacting with the product.
And by doing that, they’re gonna make better decisions on what to improve for the future. So, a data analysts, do you really need any experience for that? Not really. If you know how to use like Excel sheets, then learn the more technical stuff on the job, I think that’s probably good enough, to be honest.
You don’t have to be like a engineer or a programmer, right, you can be like a philosophy major, and you’re like, okay, I wanna get into sales, and you can do this job.
Job #7: Account Manager
You should look into if you really enjoy looking at data. And now, the final job I have for you is gonna be the account manager. The account manager is basically a salesperson that deals with customers who, similar to the customer success manager, deals with customers after the deal was closed. But the difference is an account manager isn’t so involved in making the customer successful. They’re more involved in trying to get that customer to spend more money.
If they’re paying 10K a month for a certain software, is it possible to get them to pay 15K a month instead by adding more services or offering more value in some way. You are selling a customer, right? But the only difference is that the customer is already a current customer, you’re just sending them more stuff. So it could be selling them more stuff that adds more value, and they’re like, oh, this is exactly what we need. Thank you. Or it could be getting them to renew longer or sign a longer contract. So, a lot of times, a account manager is actually the person responsible for actually getting the deal signed when it comes to renewing the customer.
Whereas the customer success manager is more about just making them successful. Like any other sales role, it doesn’t really require that much technical experience. You just need to understand things from a high level. And even you can do this job as an entry-level job. One of my roommates back in San Francisco, he started as an account manager without any sales experience and he did fine.
So, yeah, it’s definitely something where if you don’t like the pressure of being salesy and going out there and presenting and stuff like that, and you wanna work with people who already like you, well, account manager might be for you. And so, with that said, those are gonna be seven jobs that you can do in tech without having any tech experience.
