What Is High Tech Sales?

In a high tech sales position, you’ll be responsible for connecting businesses with technology that can help them solve a specific problem. Exactly what type of tech you’re selling—from actual hardware to software or other services—will vary depending on the type of company you work for. Read More

What Jobs Would I Qualify For?

Our program equips you to move into an Account Executive role seamlessly even without prior sales experience. While there are candidates that are hired for other executive-level roles, our goal is to get your foot in the door and set you up for success; and your goal is to get in that role and crush it!

Why Sales?

While most people have the image of a pesky car salesman when they hear “sales career,” high tech sales is all about using technology to solve business problems. You’re a consultant, not just a product pusher. With high tech sales, you will typically see a 50/50 split between your base salary and commission during the first year. Most Account Executives have a six-figure annual compensation.

What our graduates are saying

I absolutely love how intense these assignments can be and how they really make us think! Each section felt impactful and the gated pacing made progressing past a concept meaningful.

I really enjoy how within only a few minutes of progressing in the course material we are asked to come up with prospecting scripts, or example emails we would send to prospects. This immediately got me out of my comfort zone and forced me to not just sit and try and absorb the information, but actually apply it.

Well, week one down, and wow, I am truly impressed with the program TQ has put together for us. The learning is much more detailed, and realistic than anticipated, and I am very pleased about that. Great content, presented in a logical, meaningful fashion makes following along with the topic exciting, and interesting.

I am really blown away by the quality and simplicity of the online portal TQ has set up, and how much more effective their teaching style is than that of my online MBA program as well...makes me wonder why I'm spending all that money on it, when this level of professionalism and real teaching we are getting far exceeds what I'm paying for in my MBA.

I've always kind of thought of sales as more of an art form that you are either naturally good at or just not cut out for. After completing this week's material, I'm a bit relieved to know the actual structure and science behind the process.

At first I was a little overwhelmed by having to learn a completely new industry. However, as the week went on I felt more comfortable and confident with my ability to be successful.

Not only was the technical design intuitive and self-progressing, but the material was straight forward, down to earth, concise, and relevant. In one week, I already feel immensely more prepared for my career than I did this time last week.

I really enjoyed the structure and flow of the training this week...The training is a far cry from busy work which I experienced in some of my online MBA classes. I wish this structure was in some of my classes.

I absolutely love how intense these assignments can be and how they really make us think! Each section felt impactful and the gated pacing made progressing past a concept meaningful.
