Any insights into negotiating a full time salary in tech sales? Do I need competing offers to do so?

Always easier to negotiate when you have competing offers, but if that doesn’t work out you can leverage your current position. For example, are you expecting a raise/promotion at your current company in the near future? Use this to your advantage.

Bottom line if you hit it out of the park on your interview the recruiter/hiring manager will do what they can to give you what you want, they need to fill that req with a qualified candidate just as much you need that role.

Feeling depressed even though I have two SM offers in hand and looking for advice. My first choice is Deloitte due to the type of work, slightly better comp and I’d like a change in culture, but I’m in my early 40s and the path to principal seems like a no-go due to age. Sounds like the path to MD isn’t clear and a huge step below principal. Accenture has a very clear path to MD. Even though I’m currently at accenture my network will not come into play. So let’s not consider that a factor.

While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week.

Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!

Anxiety before your sales demos?

Do these 2 things I used to do to get over it:

1. Know the product inside out - it will take time for you to gain confidence in your sales abilities but if you know the product will you’ll be more confident in that domain.

2. Do more demos - the more calls and presentations you do the more comfortable you’ll get. My advice is to try to get on a lot of presentations, even with leads that aren’t so good.
