I am looking to get into technical/engineering sales. Does anyone have any recommendations of where to start or places to look at? LinkedIn and other job postings sites are overwhelming and I’ve always wanted to get into sales. My background is industrial engineering with a minor in business and my current role is a mechanical engineer in manufacturing with about 6 years of experience. I want to work for a company or sell something that I am passionate about or have an interest in. Thank you!

Hello there! I have 7 years of experience. First 5 years at an MNC, and 2 years in a Customer Success role at startups.

I miss the work life balance of an MNC. Are there any Customer Success roles with a good work life balance? I'm finding it very stressful and exhausting now.

I was recently promoted to a new position at my company. I'm so excited to be taking on this new challenge, but it's not going as well as I had hoped.

I've been given a lot of responsibilities, which is great. But I don't feel like any of them are being prioritized or delegated appropriately. I'm getting a lot of pressure from my manager, who is quite demanding and doesn't seem to understand that I need time to get things done and learn new skills.

Hi fellow designers, I was offered a UX designer role at Egencia in Paris, but it’s been 2 months since they made the offer by phone and I haven’t received the contract.

Additional Posts in Business Development Reps (BDRs and SDRs)

What’s your number one prospecting tip? 💰📞

like

Top SDRs oftentimes don't sound like traditional salespeople when cold calling. They use a very casual voice tone.

Here are a few tips:

1. Avoid upward inflections at the end of sentences. This makes it sound like everything you ask is a question
2. Slow down and eliminate buzzwords. Speaking fast makes you sound nervous and less confident
3. Avoid reading from a script - internalize your message and put it into your own works so you sound like YOU!

Thoughts? What are your top tips?
