Hi helpful Fishies, I’m looking to pivot to a tech sales role after 3 years in consumer goods as an account manager and would love to get your advise on the following:

1) what are some roles that I could apply for, 2) expected salary package, 3) any hard certifications required

I'd say it really depends on where you're location for salary.

However you could move into tech sales without any certifications or previous tech experience.

Sales roles are in high demand, there are loads of openings.

Hello,

Accepted an offer but had a question on the employer background check. 6 years ago worked at a small mom and pop retail store doing marketing, website, and accounting. The store has since been sold and the previous owners are in another country. I have no type of proof at all. I've had 3 jobs since and passed all background checks.

Should I be worried?

I went through two rounds of interviews for
a job that the posting stated $36.66 per

recruiter had told me in the initial call the
pay could be 32-36 because of the other
benefits. If I do get a job offer what range
should I try for? I was really hoping to get
around the 36-40 but now I feel like they
may try to offer lower than what was
posted. Also there was no range but the
average for this position is upper 70s-90k.
Thanks for any help!
