Really want to be in a particular industry but not being given the opportunity. Love my office and teams though. Idk what to do. Already told multiple people but nothing.
R2 Sloan applicants - did you include quantitative areas that you covered in high school if it was just part of the math curriculum? Eg I never took stats or probability in college but definitely had a solid enough foundation from high school to not need a refresher for the GMAT...

Losing my mind. 3 week old won’t stop crying. Spouse and I are going insane. Our LO barely sleeps for more than an hour and when she’s awake she’s basically always crying. At my wits end.
Eating less, running more, maintaining my lifts, and yet still developing a belly.
Any idea what could cause this? Booze? Carbs?

Does anyone that is involved with sales commissions have 30 minutes to spare between today and Friday for a quick demo? I’m a rep that was on track to hitting quota this month but unfortunately experienced a few more reschedules than expected.
For anyone that is open to helping me out, I’ll buy you lunch!! 😁
Good morning everyone! I have a interview as a account executive position for innovation refunds, that pays 100k + and I’m super nervous to have a interview it’s been so long ! Lol but I was wondering how can I tell what kind of environment it is, and what should I look out for? I just really don’t want to go to a sales job that’s cut throat and competitive where everyone is against each other. Working remotely now I don’t have that it’s very laid back. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!
I’m currently a sales development rep and I’ve been with the company for almost 11 months. I’m interested in making a lateral move into sales recruiting or Account management preferable within the company but open to outside because (1) I don’t feel like I can be successful in this role and (2) the base pay is very low and not competitive enough to live in SF. I briefly spoke to my manager about the pay but would love to know how to bring this topic up again and especially around promotions.
Has anyone changed their last name during job hunting? Or best to wait until you land new gig and then start the process?
I was reminded today, while listening to Conversations with Women In Sales podcast, to eliminate the word SORRY from my day to day communications.
SORRY for bothering you do you have a moment to talk?
SORRY can you repeat that?
SORRY can we reschedule?
SORRY I can’t talk right now.
As women we lean heavily on this word because we are taught to be ‘nice’ and therefore we utilize SORRY as a way to soften our communication. Anyone else use this too often?

Hi lady fishies, what do you guys do when you have a book as a goal? Read it on company time? But I feel I don't have that time. Also, have any sales books with woman authors to recommend. Can't stomach any more men than required right now.
This is a question for all of the 40+ women out there; How much does your age actually affect your ability to fit in with your younger counterparts? Have you been affected by ageism?
What are your work hours? A company I am interviewing for expects in-office 8-5 pm all while touting work life balance and a 1-hour lunch break (that’s to be had with the team). Smells like a sneaky 9-hour work day to me. Thoughts?
This is such an amazing reminder on how to hang on to our power as women.
What's your end of the year goal? Personally or professionally? My personal goal is to finish 2 more self help/professional advancement books by January 1st. Currently reading "It didn't start with you" by Mark Wolynn. Taking rec's too if you've read any good ones!

Apply anyway. Highlight how the experience you do have translated into the role to which you’re applying. (Eg for sales: deal size, account management skills, value-based selling, customer stakeholders targeted, customer industry or solution area eg finance or hr, etc)
I’m sure you’ve seen the stat that women only apply for jobs when we feel 100% qualified, but men apply when they feel 60% qualified. Fight the stat! As someone who hires now, I can confirm that the job description is a wish list, even a menu, for the hiring manager. It’s not a list of mandatory prerequisites even when the posting says “requirements”
Looking for the same info 👀
I would love to know as well
I’ve found that most SaaS companies won’t necessarily demand previous experience in tech if you’re starting at an entry level front of house team such as marketing, sales, or customer success and have some relevant experience to bring to the table…
Or perhaps partnership roles which is combined account management/customer successs and work way up to BDM within the tech world
I had no prior experience in tech and just accepted an offer at a tech company. I’m in the Sales/Biz Dev side of things and as long as I had experience in that, I was good to go.
My best advice is to make sure you’re selling yourself, not your experience. Help them understand that you’re the best fit for the job because they can’t find anyone else like you, no matter the past career history. Make sure this is clear in your cover letter and resume from the start! Good luck!
I had no prior experience in SaaS, accepted an offer in cybersecurity but i definitely knew what they were looking for in terms of skillsets and keywords when I spoke in the interviews which led to them believing I did. Note i read 4-5 books about sales in SaaS and did massive amount of research before being confident enough to sound like one
Hello, can you please name some of the books you read?
You should start with a smaller org and work your way up! They are usually a lot more involved in hiring entry level folks
Great idea. That’s exactly what I did to get into software.
BDR jobs is easy entry...then SDR is a little more difficult but still an option.
How do you like working at United Healthcare?
Study the company. Study why customers move to SaaS. Look into getting foundation leveled certifications for whichever company you’re seriously scoping. Highlight your transferable skills. For example, if you’re a good manager, you should be able to speak to that regardless of where you’re working.
Turn into a white man seems to always work 😂
Use LinkedIn and network to get a personal recommendation. The job market is hot and there are lots of BDR openings. Look for those hiring managers that are willing to take a chance.
I second this, I generally find that the easiest way to break in is though biz dev, or customer success. Better chances with customer success from what I've seen
What department are you looking to enter?
I have worked in sales operations for about 5 years and most recently our company restructured and created Project Management positions in the sales department servicing national accounts like Nordstrom, Kroger, Walmart, Target etc. What I wrote is only 2 titles where I currently work.
