Okta1 I thing I know you hmm

I think it shows initiative to call the sales manager, a practice I follow myself. His response will be a bit indicative of his approach to sales.

My thoughts exactly so a bit on the fence here…

I say go for it!!! Why are you leaving Fortinet out of curiosity?

Same I was applying to become a channel manager at Fortinet but the pay wasn’t quite what I was looking for

Yeah do it. Could work out or he could be annoyed and just not respond but that won’t hurt your chances. Not like he’s gonna go to HR and be like don’t hire this guy.

Do it. That’s how I got a couple of jobs. I was told it earned me a ton of respect.

Who do you know who knows the sales manager? A warm introduction is always better than a cold call.

I say go for it. What do you have to lose?

I work at a small CRM company in SaaS sales. It’s a small 35 ish employee company with a family-like culture.Been here for 7 years and usually make about 125k gross/year. I work remote, travel the world for free few times/year attending conferences, and just try to sell as much as I can. No stress, no quotas and what you would probably consider a “kushy” sales job. I feel like I could easily be making double at a salesforce and could land the job fairly easily with my experience. Worth the leap?
