Can someone point me to entry level sales roles at microsoft? Couldn’t find any SDR/BDR roles on their careers site. The dedicated students/grads page only has internships

I use to work for Microsoft. They transitioned all their retail stores to virtual now and have a position called Direct Sales for Microsoft. It’s like 28/hr + bonuses and it’ll get you into the doors of corporate Microsoft eventually.


You’re selling licenses, some cloud platforms, and hardwares as well. I was working directly with SMB, so yes.

If you can't find a referral here, I would try over on Linked in. I usually have good luck over there! Best of luck to you.


What location are you looking at? You could also have a look at SMC Digital Sales Cloud Acquisition roles which are similar to SDR. The difference is the you would work with managed customers that are under penetrated in the solution area that you would sell.

We closed the FY in June which could be why there were not many roles open. Also, alot of people are on vacation at the moment which might slow things down.


Most entry level sales roles for the UK market are based in Dublin where the EMEA HQ is.

My raise % has historically been good. Company entered into a big lucrative deal in 2021 which brought on more work and with it, promises of more lucrative prospects for everyone.

Come performance review time, I’m getting a rave review but was informed that the increase isn’t as big as prior years because HR is limiting the raises and not giving the department as much discretion as it did in the past with nos.

Tried to ask for more but not getting to the sweet spot.

I think my analyst is going to quit. I thought they were crushing the game: great work ethic and product, good attitude and sense of (slightly cynical) humor, one of our best analysts. Turns out all smiles and good attitude wasn’t working for them. Feel terrible about it. One for the analyst, two for our team, three that I had any part in it.
Part of me says suck it up. The other - prevailing - part is super concerned. So, check in on your juniors at a real level. The kids are not okay.

Which company would you join?

I currently work in Sales with the intention of moving over to marketing in the near future. I received two offers for BDR/SDR roles from
Sprout Social and Gong. Both salaries are around the same (Gong - base 63k + anticipated $25k in commission, Sprout - 55k base + anticipated $25k in commission).

I like both companies’ software and it extremely hard to decide which position will get me into marketing faster as it is not a traditional BDR path to take.

Hello, fellow newbie here 😀
Was wondering if yall know of any remote sales jobs with a good starting base salary? I'm doing great at my current role selling senior health insurance (76k give or take a year) but I know I'm capable of selling at a higher commission range. My calls at my last company were all cold (around 100 a day). I got job offers as a recruiter and also a few SDR offers but both fields the base is under 45k. I have a four year degree and one year of sales experience. Thank you

When is it time to give up on a job offer coming in and move on? Internal recruiter has been in constant contact with me and extremely positive, but the final decision seems to keep getting pushed off because they can’t get all the decision makers together to decide - 3 weeks now. Feels like I’m being strung along or maybe their second choice. I wasn’t looking to leave my current role, but this is an awesome opportunity. It’s starting to distract me in my current job though and can’t let it go.


I’m thinking of leaving accounting and get back into sales. Sold cars for 5 years and was a finance manager (the guy selling you extended warranties) for 2.
