What are some tangible goals I can discuss with my manger during our 1:1’s? Curious to hear what other people’s goals in tech sales are. Had anyone done a roadmap on career development ?

What are your career goals?

It will really depend on what you want to achieve and where you want to be in the next year, 3 years, 5 years, etc. Once you've figured that out, you can start defining the goals and milestones that will help get you there.

That would depend on your career goals. What kind of career path are you planning to take? My priority would be my promotion.

Is it too presumptuous to include my initials along with the partner's initials below the signature block on the draft?

I had an interviewer show up late to an interview and then apologize and say that he’s handling an emergency situation. So, I’m relatively flexible and I say that I’m totally fine rescheduling and he says he’d rather just do the interview. He didn’t have his camera on, he’s in the car driving and talking to me. At the end he gives me his objections and I counter them and then he gives me “an assignment”. To write him an email marketing the company. These are all red flags right?
