Left NYC 7 weeks ago and haven’t been back. Don’t think I’ll be able to return until July at the earliest. Lease ends in Sept and not excited to pay rent - do I have any options?
When someone says “mainstream media” I immediately know they aren’t big on facts. Do you agree?

Clients don’t give a fuck if Emily the strategist backpacked Germany once or that Jim the account guy likes making wood fired artisanal pizzas in his spare time. Leave the bullshit out of the bios.
Does PWCs risk assurance practice include DRS? As in, if I have a data science background, would I get exposure to DRS projects or an entirely separate business unit? Any exposure to coding in RA?

I paused my NYSC account by calling them. They still charged me and called me today asking to pay because my card was declined — luckily I canceled my card earlier. They’re demanding I pay to close the account..can they actually make me pay if I didn’t go to the gym?

I’m in Sales, but brand new to tech sales. I had a resume person help me - gorgeous cover letter too that showcases my skills.
I keep getting rejected for lack of SaaS experience. What can I say or do to get my foot in the door? I am confident that I can crush it but not even getting past the gatekeeper at this point. It’s a blanket “ we need someone with experience” and I’m trying to not get discouraged.
Should I transition to a tech sales job? Thoughts on risk vs reward? I am 34 yo, married with a baby incoming. I work at Google Cloud in solutions engineering (I help develop quantitative business cases with sales teams for customers). My cash base + bonus is $220k (going to ignore equity). I have an MBA from the University of Chicago, not that it matters much in sales. I have always been in a consulting role but I think I can make more in sales. I have a competitive personality and I am bored.
Why does no one discuss the real elephant that’s in the room? Most people hired in tech the last few years weren’t qualified. A few years of woke friends hiring woke friends lead us here. The positions that are getting laid off are mostly admin/recruiter related (jobs with transferable skills most people can do). It’s not the end of the world, people will find other jobs. Just no more made up titles making 6 figures at home watching Netflix (good thing).
Interviewed for a company today. The remuneration package $120k-$180k/year [Base + % of Commission = OTE] (50/50 spilt).
They’re asking for an expected salary, if my expected salary is $100k/year, comes out to $8.3k/month.
Based on the $180k and paymix of 50/50, that means $90k is the base salary which is lower than my expected - is this correct? If so, what should I do?
What enterprise cloud salesperson makes more money in a year? A partner like Accenture or a direct seller at a company like Amazon or Microsoft? Does size of company matter? Are smaller partners making more?

Hi all - I am a Sr. IT Internal Audit Consultant at a medium-size firm and I'm exploring Sales Engineer roles as a potential exit opportunity. I'm wondering if anyone else in this bowl has an IT Audit background and would be able to offer me advice on how to make the career switch.

What are some “typical” career paths for Account Executives other than working up towards the largest enterprise AE roles. After being in sales for 6 years, I’m relatively naive to any other than “leadership” and wonder what other options to consider are out there. I’d even be open so some not so typical ones that people have enjoyed/found success in. Thanks in advance!

I am trying to move from my farming role back to an outbound prospecting position. I have a couple screening calls for some pretty awesome companies and I would love some pointers on how to beat the objection that I have only been in my farming role since June. How would you sell the fact you want to go back to SDR, I am sick and tired of non revenue generating activity and miss having a list to attack.
Has anyone made the move from vendor side to an existing client? A client I closed is hiring and I think I’d be a great fit. However, I know I need to navigate with care. I love the product I sell currently, but my company was acquired recently and comp plans changed. Any advice on doing this in a tactful way?
