    Asking for a friend...let's say this friend has the following:

    * Couple of years of Enterprise IT experience.
    * Knowledge of networks, IT security best practice and business "pain points".
    * Professional speaking voice and well-presented.
    * Fast learner able to cert-up if necessary.
    * 1 GB fibre Internet at home + webcam (ie. remote work ready).

    Would this friend be qualified for Sales Engineer jobs? Any Sales Engineers able to chime in with what makes a good one?

    Only retail-level and for TV news (convincing people to go to a studio and talk to a camera for free). So, probably none.

    Apply. You never know, your friend might get lucky :)

    my job is very similar to an SE just with a bonus and not commission. Try to get pre or post sales experience. Grad roles might be an option if you’ve got a degree
