Anyone have advice on getting your foot in the door at Google or Meta for a Sales Role? I’ve only got 3.5 years of experience but have achieved Presidents Club and have had success at 2 “blue chip” organizations.

I interviewed with Googlewhen I was a senior AE at IBM with 8 years proven experience. It was total chaos. Interviews would constantly get re-scheduled, interviewers would not show up, ghost and re-schedule. The interviews themselves once they actually showed up where super weird. They would give you a case study and ask you to come up with a solution on the fly without being allowed to spend any time thinking about it. The recruiter would do a practice run with you on it. There was a very specific way they wanted you to answer the interview question which could be something like you are advising a City on how to deal with traffic congestion. They ask very little traditional sales questions it was all weird things like that. Also lots of technical issues, forced you to use Hangouts for the interview which was glitchy. Complex, bureacratic and hierarchical is how I would describe this org. The interviewers were hostile and unfriendly and treating it as a battle. The attitude was prove to me you are good enough. We all deserve better than this place. People please stop thinking just because its Google its so special. Its sales, its the same as everywhere else. Product was at the time in solid 5th place in my market (GCP) yet still very arrogant. Heres my advice, run in the opposite direction or go talk tk TechSalesTom on insta he was there and seemed to enjoy it but I think he more reps them for clout on his insta than actually liking the place. One of my mentors works there he says he hates it, quotas are terrible and organization is cultish.

Hi everyone

I'm in a business development role based in Asia. May I get your thoughts/pointers on the CAIA?

Would be happy to hear your thoughts regarding the CAIA, and study tips if you have any!
