Do seasoned enterprise reps actually think that MEDDIC helps the sales process? This is coming from the perspective that champions are undervalued and the economic buyer in a F500 company does not usually speak with vendors. The market here is developer tooling.

Hello everyone, appreciate the feedback and your thoughts. My company did not allow work from home, so I took fmla for 12 weeks. Upon returning, my roles have changed to chemical regulatory, vendor commissions and some account management.

Hey everyone! I've been in agency technical recruitment for 2.5 years now - Toronto market. I am very interested in being more involved in BD - possibly be in a full cycle recruitment role. My concern is that I've only had inside sales related experience, and I want to make sure I am able to ace the role when I do transition. I would love to get some advice from other recruitment professionals. Thank you in advanced :)

Looking for some advise on making a career move. I've been in software and telecom sales most of my career, starting at a telco (14 yrs) and then a small independent consulting company (4 yrs). Focus as been in cybersecurity and workplace/IT Modernization (Collaboration Platforms, SD-WAN, etc). I'd like to stay in sales leadership role, but I'm currious if the larger players (Microsft, Cisco, Salesforce, or a large consulting player) hire leaders from outside when not coming from a large firm.

Does your company offer an insurance payout to employees who opt out of your insurance plan and if so how much? We do, however we think it’s too low of an offering and would like to increase it. We want it to be logical from a financial standpoint.

I just got promoted but feel like I can’t celebrate. I got broken up with a few weeks ago so I don’t have the person I thought I’d be celebrating with. I’m still anxious about Covid 19 and what the winter will look like. I’m scared for my friends with upcoming layoffs. I have no idea if I’m living in the right city anymore. It all just feels so overwhelming - should I go to therapy? Am I overthinking everything?

I am looking. To accept a position out of state within my company. The position is posted and I am very likely to get the job .it would be an internal transfer. The recruiting HR told me that me that I am the top candidate but I shouldn’t expect relocation package . They would just give little something to help with the move. Should I push to get the relocation package or just be happy with what they give me.
