What does a Sales Engineer Director do?
Sales engineers are in the business of selling advanced scientific and technical products to businesses and organizations. As a sales engineer, you have training in both engineering (or an industry-related science field) and sales. You envision, design and sell new products or programs you help develop in order to increase your clients' output and profit. Your job, as a knowledgeable sales engineer, is to negotiate product or service sales that would benefit your clients. Sales engineers work in many fields of production, including the technology, manufacturing and service industries.
Most sales engineers must hold at least an Associate or bachelor's Degree in Engineering or another industry-related field. Two to four years of education are required to earn these degrees. You must be an expert in your industry in order to provide productive sales and happy customers. Sales engineers must also have strong organizational, critical and analytical thinking skills.
