Has anyone made the transition from medical implant sales to a tech industry sales role and found success? What are good roles to start searching for for someone with 5+ years experience? Thx.

Seconding D1; your easiest path would be in related tech companies/products. Search for roles equivalent to your highest level of experience, and do plenty of product research to demonstrate that you see the benefits of the tech given your background in medical.

Is it reasonable to expect the recruiter to tell me whether this role can pay X (my desired number)? Just had a recruiter tell me the firm doesn’t give a max number (after giving me a lower range than my current comp), so if I go in and blow their mind maybe that’s possible. Is this BS? Don’t want to waste my time or theirs

Hi Fellow Fishes! I need some urgent advice. I had accepted a job offer at a really good company with a good role and team. I am due to start that new job on Monday 30th Aug. Now the thing is I have a better job offer from one of my dream companies-i would be really stupid not to take that offer. So I would be declining the job at the first company just 2 days before i am supposed to start! I know its a good problem to have but a very unpleasant conversation with them. How do i soften the blow?
