RE: Inside/Outside Sales Datasheet
Thanks for the advice guys.

I just made an account on Angels and will be playing around on the website more later.

I just started this real estate job in January, so I don't want to leave just yet. I want to show that I can be successful at setting up appointments first.

Once I prove myself, I'll have a good reference to go along with my successful track record and then I can leverage that experience to get a better sales job.

RE: Inside/Outside Sales Datasheet
I've been looking for jobs recently. Wanted to update on the process.

I'm in a weird spot right now, at a tier 1 tech company with non enterprise accounts. I've been gunning for a comp plan around 250k (at a tier 1 or tier 2 company), but I don't really have the 5-10 good years of field experience yet that they look for.

Usually they give 250k plans for enterprise roles, but you can negotiate a 250k plan for a mid market role if you have w2s to back it up (I do). I'd be down for a mid market or commercial role if the price is right. I just turned down an offer from a tier 1 because the comp was a little low (around 190k).

First priority is to get a new set of accounts + pay raise at my company but if they won't give it to me then I'll look somewhere else.

In the past, I've done many other "crappy" sales jobs, such as selling knives, selling anti-aging skin creams, and trying to get people to donate to charities.

I'm hoping that I can use all this experience to get one of these SDR roles you guys have been talking about.

So, I googled "SDR jobs" in my city and most of them start about about 20$ an hour (so 40k base salary) + commission.

However, some of them require at least 1 year of B2B and SaaS experience, which I don't have.

Also, graduating with a useless bachelor's degree in psychology means I don't have a background in tech or medicine.

These missing qualifications are what discourages me the most.

At the same time, there are some SDR jobs that just require you to have some sales/telephone experience, which I do have.

So hopefully in the future, I'll be able to land one of these jobs.

Ha, I'm in the same boat. I really wish someone had told me that a psych major is pretty much useless unless you want to take it to the clinical level and do grad school and all that shit. The only thing I'd do differently about that part of my life is a comp sci degree and coding skills.

I have some good sales exp. from working for a big tech company so I have some hope that I'll get something solid soon. Keep at it and let me know if something materializes

An update on my job searching.

Since talking with Graft and a few other members, and also specifically working on interviewing, I've had much more success with phone screening.

I had 4 first rounds this week.
3 of them advanced to the next round immediately. One of them is getting back to me next week because they're a 3rd party.
That's a way better success rate than before. I'm looking forward to seeing what March brings.

When talking with potential employers, what's the breakdown of base/OTE for enterprise roles? Is that 250k base or base + OTE?

Been trying to figure out how much my account executives are making. Their sales figures are available to me but I don't know their commission % or salary.

Off topic but I hope you all read Killface's posts. I've worked with people that have accomplished more than the man so if even half of what he said is true it's worth considering his advice.

In this scenario you bank 50K in savings off your sales job and reinvest your money into assets like real estate or websites. In my case I'm living in my oil job just like I did in food service and not spending much money. All that money will get reinvested into hard assets.

Good luck and don't get left behind! We need more hard men in a post Trump world!

Nah, you won't get 250k base until you get to a VP level role.

Enterprise roles should be between 100k-150k base. A lot of times it's a 50/50 split but sometimes you can negotiate 60 percent base and 40 percent commission.
