Can anyone recommend a good therapist and/or psychiatrist? Preferably with offices in midtown when we get to go back to in person meetings, bonus if they accept Aetna insurance.

Hello all. Looking to get into SE roles at Salesforce. Can anyone help a burnt out implementation consultant with some tips/pointers I should follow before applying? Would really appreciate any insight 🙂.
It’s a nasty debate...I think both side could agree on. However, I don’t think this debate is targeted at strong believers, but to sway independent and undecided voters. Biden threw Bernie under the bus, failed to defend his son and condemned antifa. Trump sort of kind of condemn right wing, but not exactly, and he came off not good when Christ Wallace being the moderator. To be honest, I don’t think either of them convinced their believers to change minds, which probably never their intentions.

I appreciate your with referrals or companies and positions I can reach out to. Thank you! ❤️
Accepted a new job offer and desperately need to get out of the company I’m with. Opinion on giving/serving your 2 weeks?
I have been with my current company for the last 14 years. Straight commission position. Since 2013 hey have been trying to rebuild this store. Since working for them we’ve gone through 3 CFO’s and I am on my third BM who will being leaving the company only after a year. There is a new Area leader which is causing bad karma among the team. Strong arm tactics and now we are losing good people again. Ideas on how to deal with this very uncomfortable situation. Stuck between a rock and hard place.
I’m looking for an outside sales rep in Milwaukee for a SaaS company. My top rep last year cleared $800k before stock. If you know of anyone or think you’re a good fit, let me know!
Hello everyone, I am writing a paper about B2B buying process in the digital age, and would really appreciate if you could answer this quick survey for me
It takes only 5 to 10 minutes
Thank you for your help, have a nice day
After 6 weeks off work, I went back,today, to a company I used to work with years ago, today. Good job with Work/life balance.Make a consistent 100k+. I took the job because the industry I was coming from is very seasonal and hiring won't be in demand until spring next year. Later this afternoon, one of the companies I interviewed with called me back for 3rd interview. This job is riskier but 150k plus, which what I was used too. I ll probably get the job. Should i take it?
Anyone work at Hackerrank? How is it? How’s WLB, possibility of going public? @hacker Rank
Hi everyone, I have a quick question! My boss wants to QUICKLY move this one product, he had the idea that we could get “influencers” to promote it online and therefore generate hype? How does one go about FINDING and CONTACTING these influencers?! Thank you in advance for your feedback.
My highest role was a Director of Business Operations(85k), but I am looking to get into sales just want a higher income for my family. Any advice so I do not start at the bottom? Looking to start yesterday.
Any referrals would be greatly appreciated.
Any opinions on working at BlueVolt as a SDR? I've seen a lot of negative reviews on Glassdoor. Thanks
Any Spotify people here? Noticed there’s an AM role going at the moment in the UK but not sure what experience level it is. For reference I’ve got 6 years in ad sales experience with 3 years management (both in music industry). Would this be comfortable or is it worth holding out for AD?
Attention SDRs & AE’s
Trying to gauge average salaries, how much are you guys making? Are you on target, above target, below target? What industry are you in? Thanks
Question for people in B2B sales. Would you rather get paid less in a large corporation or more in a small organization?
Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.
The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?
I am starting a new position as an SDR at LinkedIn and thus signing a new contract. It’s an entry-level position but I have already worked in the company for some time. Would you recommend negotiating the offer or SDR entry-level positions are usually not negotiable?
(I've heard that other SDRs were earning around 40k EUR 70% base salary and 18k EUR 30% variable earnings, in Ireland)

Start your own practice and get out and sell yourself
Just remember - If you record it, it's not prostitution. /s
Why not pivot to fintech? Good money in that, and you've already got the financial background.
Crypto is huge right now. I would suggest that route if it is something you are interested in pursuing.
financial data sales
Yep - fintech. Plenty of accounting software companies out there
Go sell ERP/EPM at Oracle, Workday, SAP, etc. Lots of money to be made there
Or even pre-sales engineering/consulting for a similar type of product
Independent practice.. start your own firm and get after it!
A friend of mine owns this company and hires salespeople to sell the platform. https://billment.com
I’ll reach out to him next week
Accounting or finance software company!
Data analysis, it’s important to every business and it’s only getting more popular. Esp financial data. How can you make better finanacial decisions based on data and/or how can you save time=money based on data.
Look at the job descriptions in the industry you want to target, and think about how you can relate the “needed skills” to your current experience. I feel like selling yourself is the most important thing you can sell. Good luck!
I worked in accounting for a number of years. Got into IT Auditing and got all the sales training I could from Big 4. Lead proposal teams and everything as a SA. I prepped for taking a tech sales role for two years basically. When I was passed up for manager I immediately quit. No time to work on a career for less pay.
I made the leap into tech sales as an AM and doubled my income overnight. I am now about 6 years removed from accounting and make $500k a year average selling artificial intelligence for a VERY well know silicone valley company. Not bad for my accounting degree from a state college and low 3 GPA.
Sell whatever interests you. I would die selling accounting software. Sell AWS, AZURE or GCP. Sell data center equipment or cyber security software. No need to pigeon hole yourself.
But my advice - while at Big 4, get all the sales experience you can. Get all the training you can. And try to pivot to IT audit so you can learn all of the softwares and systems. You can see how much they cost. And you can make an informed decision for what you might want to sell.
