A recruiter reached out to me for a role that's way out of my league.
I've been doing mid market SaaS for 2 years, SMB for 2 years prior to that. Average deal size about 50k selling to companies between 500-5000 employees.
The role I just got headhunted for requires 3 years of enterprise experience with managing deals with an ACV of 500k. Base 125k-140k, OTE about 280k.
I have a first screening with the recruiter next Monday and I would absolutely love to nail this interview because it's my dream to step up into this type of enterprise role, but I feel like once she hears my experience she's going to discard me.
The only two positive aspects are that a) it's close to the persona I've been selling into in my previous role (HR/Workplace Experience), and b) it's an EMEA-wide position which is what I've been doing throughout my entire sales career.
Do you think this is just a pipe dream or is there anyway I can have a real shot at winning this?
