Interested in understanding the career ladder at SalesForce. My understanding is that the ladder is something like this: - Strategic Account Manager (? YOE) - Enterprise Account Executive (8-12 YOE) - Senior Account Executive (5-8 YOE) - Account Executive (3-5 YOE) Can anyone confirm?

What do you do now?

Oil and gas account management and sales (Mostly physical products and services. ~5-10% software related sales). In the current role for three+ years. Salesforce user and have early career background in programming. Have just been offered a promotion but with a change of location and with little change in nature of work - more accounts and with a global responsibility.

I am having a lots of interviews for a first year association position, but unfortunately any concrete offers.

What are the other reasons that you may mention why a person is refused after the interview? Do you answer when they ask about the salary range? Do you find helpful any sources for I interview skills? Thanks
