What does a BDM do - set appointments?

@Account Executive - Build pipeline!?! You know, that's never once happened in my career. Typically, they field incoming requests for demos and then request an SQL approval.

For the love of god, just because you don’t like something in an agreement does not mean it “is not market” — especially when your client agreed to same in the LOI (end rant).

Had a recruiter from a popular unicorn company reach back out after I interviewed with them earlier this year for a different team. The new team seems to like me and I’m being fast tracked through the process (only 2 interviews instead of 3 and all within a week). The only problem is that if I get an offer, the start date will likely be 11/15. I already have a 2 week vacation planned and I’d be screwing myself out of EOY bonus if I start 12/01. Role is MM, am I too junior to ask for a Jan start?
