Hi fellow salesfolk,

I'm planning to move from Europe to Montréal, Canada in the next few months with my partner. I want to experience living abroad for a while + I loved my time there as an exchange student.

I've built my career in SaaS: 1 year as an all-round BDR, 2 years as a mid-market AE (closed some enterprise too, beat my targets and was nr 1) and now I'm in a BDR manager position for 6 months.

Is finding a job realistic? AE roles is where I shine the best. I speak both FR and EN

Yeah, there's decent demand for SaaS AEs over there in my experience. Canada in general has a lot of SaaS companies of all sizes, so you might even be able to find something remote out of Montreal honestly.

We emphasize accidents happen but he needs to say something. He says he scared to tell anyone. I am growing increasingly agitated and constantly wary. How do I check my own feelings to better support him?

I always have to go back and audit my commission pay because it’s never correct. A year ago when I found out that I could actually do that, I was a little bummed I’ve been missing out on that for months . My manager said “well it’s your paycheck”. My first sales job I never had to do worry about getting paid correctly. I’d like to think that companies take responsibility for paying their employees accurately and fairly. Is this a common thing in sales or was I just spoiled that first job?
