I've been in my current firm as a SMB AE for 3 months and it hasn't turned out the way I had hoped. Y'all may refer to my previous post for more detailed info on why my current SMB AE role kinda sucks. But TLDR; salary sucks, I realise I don't like the market I'm selling to, I'm bored, and there's no tech stack.
That said, I've been getting AE interviews with good firms, e.g. Twilio, Datadog, but haven't gotten past the hiring manager/director and I've been told that I have the drive and the attitude BUT it's because of my lack of experience. But don't all AEs start off from SDRs too?!?! I'm so confused why I even got shortlisted for an interview in the first place.
Since I've only been in an AE role for 3 months, any tips on how I can get offers for an AE position?
