I’m curious what people are making as BDMs in Automotive. I’m personally in the automotive industry responsible for finding new business opportunities in the semiconductor realm.


Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.


Does anyone have a really good DEI moment idea that I can share! I’ve done all the usual ones - would like something different 👍🏽


How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.

Hey everyone, I have a question. I’m trying to send a thank you note to a VP I interviewed with but I don’t have her email. Everything was done through the coordinator. I asked the coordinator for her email but I haven’t heard back. Should I just email the person based on how the coordinator’s email looks (first name and last) or let it be? It’s already been 24 hours and I want to do it soon. Thank you much.


📱iPhone vs Android for a sales career?

Long-time android user here, have been told my lack of facetime ability and blue text messages might be a negative. Thoughts?


Good morning, I need some career advice please! I have been in recruitment for 21 years.  I started at the bottom as a trainee and worked my way up to manage a city temps division. I then went onto a boutique recruitment company for 7 years to recruit on the permanent side. I now own a small recruitment company of 2 and I am starting to get itchy feet. I would like to get back into the corporate world and thought about Talent Acquisition. Would I have to start from the very bottom? Thank you.


Would you ask for a higher pay at a startup, due to the company not having a pension scheme for its employees?


Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)? I’m an Enterprise AM currently (6+ years of total closing experience in SaaS) but looking to make a change sometime in the next 18-24 months. Certainly expecting to sacrifice financial upside but growing tired of the grind.


Looking to finally go get my SPHR having the PHR for the past 6 years. Still value and pursuing and obtaining?


I'm a Manager who would like to be promoted to Director in the near future. While reflecting on how I've developed in my role with my current company, I've realized that the only development/coaching I've received has been on how to interact with the difficult personalities on our leadership team. I know that messaging is important, but this feels really specific to individual's bad behavior.

Is this common for someone who is looking to move from Manager to Director?


Looking to resign tomorrow. My direct manager has been out sick but the head of my team is in. He hired me initially before we hired my current direct manager. Does it matter who I resign to? I don’t want to disrespect anyone but also I am trying to resign before they lay me off and tomorrow the head of our team placed an early morning mtg. Smells like a lay off…


Can you guys recommend any course or training to get PHR certify?


Been in biz dev/inside sales for ~3 years. Looking to make a career change to less customer facing roles. Seems like I’m not qualified for anything else. Any recommendations on other career routes?


Any recommendations for a us based appointment setting company? I’m looking for a leader in the industry.

Curious if others think it is unprofessional to take a potential job candidate to lunch (with other current employees) after an interview with management. Then after lunch bring them back to do a second less formal interview with said current employees who would essentially be co-workers if this candidate was hired.


Hey friends, if anybody wants to study for the AWS cloud cert and form a study group! Im down!

Hope everybody is having a productive week thus far, keep soaring high!


I always have to go back and audit my commission pay because it’s never correct. A year ago when I found out that I could actually do that, I was a little bummed I’ve been missing out on that for months . My manager said “well it’s your paycheck”. My first sales job I never had to do worry about getting paid correctly. I’d like to think that companies take responsibility for paying their employees accurately and fairly. Is this a common thing in sales or was I just spoiled that first job?

How long after you ETS’d did you go to work?

Thinking of taking of 6-12 months before going into the work force.

For context: getting out at 12 years, been special operations for 10 of those years, 7 deployments; 3young kids who I’ve missed a lot of their lives already; have more than enough savings to sustain a 12 month break in between ETS & new job; would be finishing a masters in that time off as well.

What does this look like from the employer perspective? Other factors I overlooked?
