In January I moved from an SDR at one company to a hybrid SDR/AE role at another company. Biggest challenge I found was managing my time when I moved. I was trying to learn and execute my new responsibilities related to being an AE, but also maintaining my same level of work and performance as an SDR.
I started blocking out my/calendar and told coworkers not to bother me with stuff during prime calling hours, and I do all my SDR responsibilities then. I also blocked out time to preform more AE responsibilities during off hours, so far it is working but I am probably working 65+ hours a week to maintain my performance.
Anyone have experience transitioning into a hybrid role like this? What did you do to manage your time better?
