I have 3 year experience working at Deloitte Consulting and want to move on to a Sales role and Career. I currently make $110K, is this feasible comp to make starting out in Sales?. How can I learn about comp in your industry?

Besides the comp question, are there any resources/forums/books online that anyone can recommend that’ll get me a good understand of what to expect out of a sales role, different sales roles, how to succeed, build career, etc. Im starting from 0

Thank you!

In terms of comp, it probably depends on your experience. Would you need to start in an entry level sales role? My original base at this company was 93K. Now I make 120K, but we make a lot more on commission. I am at a tech company and I think the bottom of the salary range is around 50K. It is only partially remote. You can make a lot in commission in this role and work your way into a higher level sales role where you would make a lot of money.

You need to convince someone to hire you as an AE rather than the true bottom.

It really depends on what you want to sell and whether you want to be in the field or not. Just because you have done traditional sales in the past doesn't mean that you would necessarily not already possess many of the skills and be able to start above the truly entry level.

You should reach out to your network and start talking to any contacts you have in sales to get their perspectives first.

Our sales team sells membership for $30k-$75k and make about $400 on each sale now matter how much.
