Sales Engineers

Outlook

The employment growth for sales engineers is expected to be about 7 percent, which is as fast as the average for all occupations, through 2024, according to the Department of Labor. The continual introduction of new technological products and improvements to previously existing products will require the skill and expertise of sales engineers to sell these products to customers. Strong job growth is predicted in the computer hardware and software areas, and job growth for sales engineers in computer systems design and related services will be much faster than average, at 21 percent through 2024. There will also be good job opportunities at independent sales agencies as manufacturers are increasingly outsourcing their sales staff as a way to curb costs. Sales engineers with solid knowledge of the technical products and services they are selling and strong interpersonal and persuasive abilities will do well in this field.
