Typically the exit is to some sort of sales engineer/solutions architect role in a sales org. Not too many people go straight from implementation to pure sales.

The role is for pure sales and an account executive position due to my industry experience

I'm actually doing a similar lateral, but to Financial Advisory/Investment Advisory Sales. I'm good with clients and have been in client management/sales roles before EY though, so can't speak to your case

Do you find the work more rewarding or worthwhile in terms of compensation? I’ve been involved in RFPs and orals before but not to magnitude of a dedicated account exec

Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections.

I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!
