So recently (i.e. this past week) accepted a role to be the entry level sales development position at an extremely fast growing [some say the fastest] software startup. First year comp is looking to average around 60K in a moderate COL area, with some making more than 100K.
Seems like there are many out there in software sales, especially enterprise, which are able to pull in over 300K a year. Coming from a non-target I feel its a field that rewards grit and talent more than prestige or background. Might try something like software sales --> biotech sales --> top MBA / entrepreneurship --> maybe one or two companies as VP of Sales or actual founder --> end goal just churning or something like advisor/angel/VC; something like that.
Any thoughts monkeys?
