My first real job out of college was basically sales. I do not have the personality for sales. Being on the phone all day is torture. I started gravitating more toward the data management side of the job, starting with Excel and growing from there. It wasn't long before I realized I should be in tech, not sales, and was able to build the skills to make that transition. Programming suits the way my mind works very well.
