Hey guys I’m currently an Allstate agent I’ve worked in real estate sales for two years and insurance sales for one year. I have a bachelors degree and I am currently trying to get into tech sales. Any advice on what roles to target and what salary to aim for?

AE (120K) is worth shooting for. You might have to do a stint as a BDR (60K). Those numbers are approximate

This seems like the most reasonable pathway to me. I think you can get up to 70k potentially if you can spin your experience properly and connect it back to tech sales in a tangible way

Agree with AE1 - account executive is a good goal. As far as type of tech, I'd recommend SaaS if possible. That's where the money seems to be. That and medtech/pharma.

SDR/BDR might be your best place to start. You won't have the freedom like being an insurance salesperson or real estate agent, but it sounds like you've had no difficulty proving yourself in the past couple years. Keep on keeping on.

Hi all,

I worked in PwC for 1.5 years and the moved to Oracle on last July with 50% hike(CCTC is 14.5LPA). I was hired for Application Developer 2 but often I’m getting QA work and I don’t like this job. So looking for a change.

If I leave Oracle before 12 months I should repay the amount I used for relocation purposes. ( I used around 3L )

I was interviewed in Aruba Networks ( a HPE subsidiary ). If I clear the interview, how much CTC I can expect ?
