Like many companies, mine works of a level system for Sales (1-6) but also pairs that with a company level which funnily enough does not align with the sales levels. For example L4 AE only makes you a company L3.
The issue I have is going into sales development management. They won’t let us even interview if we aren’t L4 and I’m feeling pretty trapped as companies don’t really want to hire you with no management experience.
Any advice on how to move into sales development management? Thought internally would be the path of least resistance but it’s not the case 🥲
