Would it be out of line during interviews to ask about agency revenue/growth or account health/trends?

Totally fine to ask about agency growth and overall health, especially if it’s relevant to the role you’re interviewing for. Don’t expect them to share any real revenue numbers though. And specifics by account are a little less kosher. Remember, first and foremost you’re interviewing to work for the agency, not a specific client, even if there’s a client name talked about.

Thanks! I want to be sure any company I may work for is in good financial standing.

Hi there! For the last 20 years, I’ve been in project/program manager roles. Most recently, I spent the last 12 years in a learning development role managing the development of sales and technology training. Also, facilitating and partnering with sales on the development of Hunter workshops and sales/Pre-sales new hire training. I’m looking to switch careers to being in sales as an account manager / sales development rep. Advice on how to get interviews in this new dream role?

Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!
