Link of the Moment: Life of a Salesman

As part of his series on alternate technical careers, Chemjobber profiled technical sales as an option.  I was in technical sales for 2 years, followed by 4 years of sales support, so I provided a few comments for today's CJ post.
One of the persistent themes I hear about people looking for jobs is that they're sure they can do the job, but for whatever reason (wrong background, not enough education), they don't get an adequate hearing.  Because sales compensation is often by commission, some employers may be willing to take a chance on someone without experience.
