Any tips for fundraising? Working in a nonprofit on the side, and the scope is a lot bigger than what I do at work usually. I’d love to talk to someone with fundraising experience.

I've done some in the past, but nothing large-scale. I thought it was mostly proposal/grant writing as part of that role?

These are proposals for about 50k to 100k USD. So they are small to some, and big for others. (Us included) Got any tips on approaching companies?

I have some experience with fundraising. I might be able to help you a little.

That would be great! Sorry for the late reply, I don’t have notifications on for this app. Can we DM here?

Hey everyone, need some career help...

I’m currently a BDR at a small family business who specializes in financial services. Total sales team is 11 people just to give you an idea.

I’ve been here for 2 years now and it’s my first job out of college. Id like to move to a larger company with more growth and training as I know it will help me for the future.

I’m afraid that with my limited experience and an unknown company that will be hard to get my foot in anywhere. What should I do?

Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.

The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?


I spoke to a recruiter about a month ago regarding a position. The comp base variable split was 70/30 which was a great guarantee compared to 50/50 split on same OTE I have now. Since initial discussions the offer has changed to 60/40 split and a 20k lower OTE). I am quite disappointed but also see it a still a very strong opp and I’m really ready to try something new. They mentioned a signing bonus. What is a reasonable signing bonus to ask for? Its 40k difference from the orig base.

Early stage startup or startup in the process of being acquired by a big tech giant. . .
Both with a similar comp structure...
Early stage startup includes a higher quota, 10% commission on closed business, and series A stock equating to roughly 0.15% ownership in company...
Which one do you take, and why?


Hello guys,
I am new to US job market - and I have been working in B2B sales for almost 2 decades for an international ICT/Télécommunications provider in Europe.
I know that I cannot expect to start here in the US where I left my precious job as Sales Manager and I am fine with that.
But what can I demand in terms of salary (base/commission/boni) in the DC area? I am currently in the middle of an interview process and the company offered 60k base salary.
Any advise is much appreciated!


Hi All, looking for some ideas to create a 30 60 90 for a 2nd round interview. The role is a Channel Management/ Development role for a single partner that is a communications provider. The partner has business in SMB, Enterprise, and Pub Sector.

I'm trying to find something unique/ forward thinking that is different from what is typically said. Hopefully some ideas how to engage with the partner leadership to bring value

Anything y'all have seen that you like?


Since starting at this company in January 2022, they’ve increased my base pay from 75k to 85k. Moved me in a desirable territory to maximize sales. allowed me to speak and train reps for what has been working. Given me the freedom to work strategies that work for me.

I absolutely love this company so far. I know my worth is higher than 85k base but sheesh. The way they value me and treat their employees right. Maybe it’s worth the lesser pay?


Hi all - please set me straight. Am I on par with comp?

AdTech Sales - Account Executive. No experience in Sales, but was in client services with my company for 10 years.

Base 142 with 100% match, so 284 OTE. Accelerators after 100, which doubles up to 125. (101 to goal will garner 102 in commission, 105 will 110, caps out at 125 so max is 150% commission)

Q1 is looking good already so feel good about things. But curious if this is a good deal.


I think this is something we all want to know, it’s why we’re in sales. What sales jobs make the most money?
