Chrissy’s Answer

Hi Jacob,
I work for Dell Technologies and run a program called NextGen Presales Academy and we see lots of Computer Science majors fit the job profile. The goal of the program is to teach recent college grads everything they need to know to become a Presales Solutions Architect. We also have internships to introduce rising seniors (in college) to the role. The role of a Presales Solutions Architect blends the art of sales with the science of technology. We strive to act as trusted advisors to our customers to help recommend and design technology-based products and solutions.

Chrissy recommends the following next steps:

Research the role of a Presales Solutions Architect. Also sometimes called Presales Systems Engineer.

There are a lot of options. Most people start within the technology field or technology-adjacent. Examples are jobs in software development, system engineering/admin, network engineering/admin, database engineering/admin. Technology-adjacent examples are jobs in product management, business analysis, or consulting. Com sci would also equip you with critical thinking skills that can be applied to other spaces as well.

Try searching "Computer science jobs" on Google, you will see a bunch of examples!

well...it depends. Even within a major, you can focus in on specialized areas. Some examples:
Programming
Networking
Security
Databases

Each of these areas will land in slightly different roles/jobs.
