Idk if business development executive and BD rep is different but BDR from my understanding is entry level. Cold calling, sending messages on LinkedIn etc. AE is the sales rep that takes the meetings the BDR sets up.

This is also my understanding of the BDR vs AE role.
I work this way now. I am looking at a BDE role.

Typically bus dev implies broader offering than off-the-shelf AE, but they can be interchangeable.

BDE mostly deals with the development of the overall company whereas AE is more like a sales rep if I'm not mistaken.

To put it in simple terms, the Account Executive fosters the new commercial ties that the Business Development Executive forges. BDEs are the hunters while the AEs are the gatherers

This is a really great way to put it. THank you for this explanation!

BD implies stuff that hasn't come in yet and needs to be developed. AE is the first step after getting the stuff and helping it grow to be even bigger. I think BD always comes before an AE

What's the best course of action when you find yourself at a job that's far more chaotic than you assessed while interviewing? Upon starting this job a couple of weeks ago, I discovered between the time I interviewed and my start date they had hired a new CEO, laid off all of their off-shore teams, changed my position to a new hiring manager, and added an on-call rotation to all engineering teams. None of this showed up in my research of the company or my interviews.

Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage.

Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)
