Full transparency: I was an English major who dropped out to pursue a career in sales. I was able to get an SDR job that propelled me into a relatively successful career. I live a comfortable, prosperous life and have personally learned much more as an SDR/AE than I ever did in school.
Education is important, but often requires it's recipients to shoulder ridiculous debt with limited opportunity post-graduation. Lots of people who go to fancy schools with prestigious degrees end up working in sales anyway.
Do you think companies should continue requiring a degree as a prerequisite for entry-level sales jobs?
