Unfortunately, I’m left trying to defend myself on a regular basis. HR and my manager have been involved, but the manager’s behavior stays that same. What can I do to help get the target off my back?

I’m in a closing role now, I’m selling cable. I’ve gotten it a few times where I’ll apply for an SDR role in SAAS and the recruiter will say, “We decided not to move forward because we have other candidates that are more experienced and because you’re in a closing role now”. Should I stop telling the recruiter I’m in a closing role? Should I go after an AE role? How do I get a job in SAAS with no experience?


Hi, could use some advice here. I’m (24m) and I work as an SDR in the SaaS industry. My company basically goes to other SaaS companies and does their outbound sales for them. So I’ve had two different clients in the 8 months I’ve been here. Quota is 10 outbound a month and little pay for base/hitting quota. I want to get out of here and have been applying but hearing lots of “no’s”. I’m not going to give up. Any advice? Any way I can better sell myself to get a better paying job?


Is 270k OTE a good offer for a commercial role in cybersecurity? I ask this for 2 reasons:

I would rather have a lower OTE and a higher chance to hit my number and higher chance to exceed
