I was coming here to say this. Or healthcare.

I'm in healthcare. I'd recommend to try and get in with an established (Not a startup but not a 20 year+ company) biotech company. 

These are the companies that will be paying good $$$ with opportunity to advance while selling some really cool shit.

is it easy to join it without technical background?

I wouldn't say it takes any more than any other job in tech sales. Of course, it might vary company to company. But the ones that I'm aware of just hire good salespeople and train them on the different products they offer.

Amen! My only regret was spending the first half of my sales career outside security. Now that I'm here I'll never leave.

so true, my pal went from being a uni drop out to a door to door salesman and then to a well paid Account manager within one year in cyber security.

It has leverage. Small tools can add immense value to businesses. So easy to sell with higher value to show

Something kind of boring but stable and lots of money. Construction (concrete, glass, demo, gravel) or hardware tech (phones, computers, boardroom tech). Its recession proof and so much money.

It isn’t the sexy sales job but going on the other side of construction and being their source for safety equipment is booming. Legally they need it and the industry doesn’t slow down.

My biggest kicking-myself moment was that I was offered a job selling for a veterinary telemedicine company and I turned it down because the base salary was LOW. 

... but I was offered that job in October 2019. 

I would have made a FORTUNE. 

So. Many. Regrets. 

But I would still stay in the veterinary space. It's what I know. I'd probably like to jump to pharma or software, though.

Sales Tech (or other tools for sellers)--I'm selling to my exact persona. It would be a great start to understanding the prospect and getting into their minds!
