When you have your LinkedIn account set to "open to work" and recruiters reach out all the time do you take the mindset of "I need to sell myself for this role" OR "The recruiter needs to sell the role to myself?"

It should always be recruiter selling the role to you. You put yourself in the right mindset that way. This allows you to take control

If they are reaching out to you they should be the one selling it. If you're the one reaching out proactively, then I think the burden is on you to sell yourself more.ย

I like to think if I'm bringing on a recruiter they sell me up until I get the interview then it's go time. That being said, I always say I'm happy in my current role because truth be told I am, but also it is leverage

Agree, always play it that you are content in your role and it will take a lot to move.ย

Is starting your own business the only option for a laid-off salesperson after you reach the milestone age of 50 ? How does one get hired at 50+ without compromising pay, dignity, location and happiness ?

If you join a SaaS company and thrive at the beginning due to inbound leads and good SDR and then sales start going down due to a change of SDR and less inbounds, does that mean youโ€™re not a competent sales person or does it mean itโ€™s time to move on to another company?
