Hi there,

I have been working in technical roles at both Amazon and Microsoft (current) for about 4 years now.

But I no longer see the technical path as the way for myself going forward and would like to try something related to sales or business development. What would be a good role to break into that area and also hopefully not that a pay cut, if possible?

Thank you!

Recruiter pings me on LI and about a role. We have a good talk. She brings up TC and I say I'd like to talk to at least the HM about the role first (which is the next step). She seems fine with it. She called me twice yesterday and insisted I give her a number or a range. I refused. She says that it would be difficult to move forward before hanging up. Is giving a number (range) really that important?
