I have, potentially, a very good opportunity. I'm doing really good in college (non-target, first year) right now, have all As but I really don't like it, I've already taken tests in all my classes also. I've been exploring careers and looked into sales. I started networking and I might get an offer to work as an SDR but I would need to move. SDR get around $40-50k a year and after 8-12 months can move up and work as an Account Executive where 6 figures are the norm.
If I am good I can be making 6 figures when my friends are just getting out of college. I want to move away from my family also so it's very tempting to just hammer this offer home and just start with my life. I wanted to get the opinions of some users here who are familiar with the industry.
Oh and an SDR basically takes leads, calls them and see's if they're legit. If they are, then I pass them on to my team leader and he does all the work with closing the deal, etc. It's a pretty easy gig and I think I may do very good in sales.
