This isnโ€™t a SDR/BDR role.

It says it is, but youโ€™re right it shouldnโ€™t be listed as that.

Business Development Rep has a very wide definition.ย  Before the onslaught of SDR roles, a BDR could be a very high level person in a company.ย  Still can be too.ย  Title is not always indicative of job responsibilities.

I once looked at a **BDM** role with a sister company I was in.ย  I reached out to the HM and asked for an informational interview which he kindly granted.ย  I asked him what he was REALLY looking for.ย  He said either a Retired 2star General or head of a Fed Gov Procurement Dept who could walk them into certain organizations.ย  Needless to say, I was not qualified.

So went back to it. Re read the title. Itโ€™s definitely BDR. Also it mentions being part of the business development team and BD a bunch of times. Not sure if I should post the link to the ad or if thatโ€™s bad form.

no i get that. but what they think is a BDR is not what sales ppl think is a BDR.ย 

In my industry, if you are in business development you are the only person that is focused on brining in revenue (not a sales role though, its complicated) So when i first joined they wanted to make my title BDR so it would match the industry.......sorry cant do that haha

Also why would you need closing experience in an entry level BDR role?

I think somebody in HR put the wrong title on top of requirements for another role.

BDR
Jesus ripsh*t christ...7-10 years? Vague job description?ย  I don't have a wealth of experience like some of these AE's do, but never have I seen a salesperson 10 years deep still holding the BDR title.
