Who’s an account executive? It seems like this is an extremely popular and challenging role in sales.

Let’s specify if we are mid market, enterprise etc. so we can see how the comp compares. Are the goals they set for commission and bonus realistic? I’m an AE as well my title for some reason is taking forever to update.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

I think I’m going to contact a bunch of legal recruiters and tell them I’m looking to hire, set a bunch of calls just to take up their time, then reveal that I’m not really hiring after all.
