Any tips for career progression for a tech recruiter? I have 2 years of experience working for a recruitment agency for capital markets + some account management. Thinking of internal recruiter roles at startups or customer success management. Live in NYC but really want to relocate to a smaller city. Any tips from recruiters or CSMs?

You could move into recruitment management, or pivot to more general HR management.

That’s fair. I really like that I get to talk to candidates and clients. I always felt like HR was the more boring field to go into but I would consider it. Would love to hear more from anyone who’s in HR or was in HR at one point

Question.. is moving from ENT Sales to ENT Account management a good idea? Why or why not?


Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans

We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k

Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors

I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).

Thoughts? Things to consider?

Hey everyone! I am a student finishing up my last year at university. I was working in real estate and then became a loan officer for 2 years. I made a switch from mortgages to a food supply wholesaler as a regional sales/project manager managing the accounts for a couple states.

Ik everything is pretty crazy and it’s all relative.🤝
