How did everyone here get into sales? Would love to hear your stories!

I was getting out of the military, had no directly transferable work skills, and needed to make a living in an expensive city (San Diego). Started looking at my options and found that I could do menial labor for just above minimum wage OR I could learn to get people to buy things and make this wonderful thing called commission! Took a job in insurance sales and the rest is history! Been in sales for about 15 years now ❤️

I’ve been applying for entry level SDR/BDR positions within the tech industry and even sales rep positions wth pharmaceutical companies. I have been finding it difficult so far coming from someone who has a pharmaceutical science degree and has had a lot of experience in labs and recently as a drug analyst, but with 0 experience in sales. Any advice on how I can make my applications stand out (I have emphasized transferable skills).

Hi! I want to go back to working with other humans (in person) after a successful 10 yrs of freelance/remote Creative services on my own. I am excited about working for brand development agencies, but I keep reading that in my late 40s, advertising might not be the most welcoming scenario. Are there any suggestions for "mature" diverse agencies (any size) to check out in NYC? I'm a bilingual, hard-working AD/Designer with a ton of design management experience. Gracias!!

I’ve been a project manager (delivery focused) for 8 years now and have worked across multiple companies / teams as I am a contractor.

I’m worried if I look for more senior PM roles I will feel the same. What other options could I explore and has anyone else had a similar experience?
