I can relate and have been in sales ever since I discovered this skill set. Sales allows you to feel needed and have purpose. Focus on knowing and understanding the product or service the company offers, so you have a full understanding when presenting to a potential customer/client. Additionally, your positive interaction, not only with customers, but also with peers, will open doors for future growth. The gift of gab is truly a gift and can prove to be very profitable.
I'd recommend explore the above and meeting some people who already in the space. Informational interviews with these people will help you better understand which specific area interests you the most.

Communication skills are good (and very much needed) in every industry. It depends on what your particular style of communication is. Are you good at writing? Are you good at public speaking? Do you prefer to talk one on one with individuals or with big crowds? Depending on how you answer these questions will help you know what industry to consider.
The more obvious industries that really rely on communication skills are areas like journalism (either print or television), political office, and public relations. But there are other industries that may seem a little less obvious but rely on communication skills as well. These include healthcare industries, social services, and even project management (which is my background).
I would suggest that you take one step further to figure out what your interests are, what problem do you want to solve in the world, and what aspect of talking to people really excites you.
Communication Skills would help you in every field ! I have few friends who are excellent orators are realtors, public speakers, customer service or customer support representatives also a Radio Jockey.
If you decide to pursue technology, then you can look in fields of technical support which will help you further.
