I shit the bed in Q1. Ended at 68.7% to quota after over-attaining in 2020 (138.2%, +exceeded every Q) and being labeled a top-performer. I'm a relatively new in my sales career (started Q1 2020) and did not apply for promotions because of my lack of tenure at the company. Typically reps promote after 1-2 years in seat, but I'm afraid I'm back to square one after a disastrous quarter.
Is it worth interviewing for promotions given my success in the past? Or will I be immediately passed up based on metrics alone?
Is this just the typical high/lows of sales? Anyone else have an experience like this?
