No harder than starting from the bottom as if coming out of grad school. What's your degree in? What was the different career? Any relevance helps, but if not just come at it with a clean slate.

I think it's pretty doable personally

Hey everyone, an Amazon Amazon recruiter reached out to me awhile back for a strategic sales position. I just got the denial from them one day after the interview. The recruiter gave me quite the list to prepare and my interviewer literally brought up none of it. 3 questions, tell me about what you do, what’s your sales cycle like and how would you explain cloud in the simplest terms. That’s it. I felt like we got along great, so i was surprised at this. Any feedback anyone can provide?

Does anyone else feel like they need to switch jobs/companies every two years to continue to be motivated/interested?

Maybe time to go back to consulting
