Hey everyone, I have a final interview for an AE position next week for a saas company. 30 min interview followed by role play. I’m pretty nervous even though I feel like i shouldn’t be but I’m just excited for the chance to finally move from my BDR position. I’m just curious, do any of you have any tips or recommendations for either part on how I can knock out this interview? Appreciate any help

How does one make a switch from account executive to account management? I was recently asked in an AM interview how I would go about from managing 10 clients to 75 clients. I would love the feedbacks for AMs in here.

I’ve been in the auto industry (inside sales, think account executive type positive. As well as supply chain, marketing and incentives experience) for over 10 years. I have a wide array of skills that could be applied to almost any industry. I’ve had a really hard time transitioning/translating that in my resume as well as in interviews. Feeling like I am pigeonholed into automotive forever. Trying to find something involving less travel and in my hometown for personal reasons.

SalesForce folks, a recruiter reached out for an opportunity to interview for a AE position in my specialty. I noticed there is also an opp available locally for a Strategic Account Manager in my vertical as well. Any one know of pay difference between the two, responsibilities/expectations, how they are viewed in the org itself? I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction. Appreciate any input.

I’m interviewing for an AE position at a smaller agency, about 80 people. Looking at people’s profiles that work at this agency on LinkedIn, it feels like I have more experience than all AEs there and match more with SAE levels.

How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day. I’ve been applying to AE jobs elsewhere but I’m competing with everyone who’s been laid off at this point I’m happy to get a rejection instead of being ghosted by the hiring manager. Any tips on getting out of this mindset? I feel trapped.

Interviewing for an AE position on an all-male account team this week (AS/AD/VP/SVP). HR sounded really interested in my background and I’m excited about the company. However, I’m a little apprehensive about the all-male team, especially as I’ll be the most junior role. Am I overthinking this/any advice going into the interview?

Apologies for all the questions but I need advice. I’ve been in media buying for 2 years and I’m hoping to transition to accounts. I interviewed with an agency who told me I would have to come in as an AAE vs AE. This position would be a 10k pay cut for me, is it worth it? Could I come in as an AE or do I have to be an AAE first to get experience? Thanks!
