How competitive is the Oracle BDC role? Is there a difference between BDC, BDR, and sales rep?

Current senior in undergrad here, previously looking at consulting but now very into tech sales.

Agree, Oracle BDR offers some good basic training for sales...cold calling, CRM, pipeline management, etc.. But its also narrowly focused, and you will need to be agressive in pushing to get deeper experience. It is absolutely critical who you work for and with...and in which division. Institutional stupidity, management incompetence, politics and corporate a**hole training is all VERY prevalent...beware

IMO, consulting can give you better opportunity IF you can get client facing. Certainly many of the same warnings apply...who you work for, etc.. But carrying a consulting badge to you next job is better.

True sales training can be best found in smaller (growth) companies...but the risks are higher and pedigree lower.

BDR focuses on lead generations for Sales Rep. They also do prospecting works to qualify those leads for the Sales Rep. The Role of a BDR is usually to make sure there's an opportunity for the a sale. SDR and BDR are a great way to get into the Sales role, especially if you're a recent graduate looking to build some experience.

Edit: also for starting sales roles at general tech/Fortune 100 firms

It’s a good place to start a sales career. BDC = SDR.

10 open Leadership Supervisor positions.

I said that "People come to me about process issues, and I worked with others to better that process for them and the team."
Interviewer feedback denying me the role was that because I did not say "People trust me and came to me about process issues. Which led me to collaborate with others that I have networked with in the past to find solutions." I did not get the job.

Was this Code-Switching nitpick?

Additionally, I would also love to hear about experiences working at Epic too! Thank you!

I am thinking of leaving my stable full time job for a contract position (ongoing with no time frame) for a bigger raise (making an exra $20/hour) with a large tech company. I'll still get benefits through Aquent so it's not a huge loss. It just feels risky in terms of being a contractor and the potential for it to end at anytime. Seems like a good opportunity though to get my foot in the door and potentially apply for full time jobs later on

What is the best way to attract a new mate? I got out of a 7 year relationship (he was cheating on me for half of it) and I’m so confused on where to even start. I have a therapist and working on my trust issues - but I have self confidence issues. I’ve been burned for being ‘unattractive’. But I’ve seen girls that are objectively more unattractive than me have mates. So it must be a confidence issue? Those girls seem to glow while I am so sad. Or it’s the guys I go on dates with?

Fellow biglawboiz, what’s your “go to” nice casual outfit in the summer (e.g., hanging out with friends in a casual setting, dinner at a restaurant, etc.). Mine has been jeans and a black v-neck, but honestly I just need a change. I’m also in my early 30s so probably too old to pull off the nice athliesure look (e.g., lulu shirts). Polos feel a little too preppy but maybe at my age that’s the look I need to go for? Just curious what you guys like to wear (also any brand recs are welcome).
