I never wanted to be a job hopper, I just wanted the most money possible.
Had this brought up in my last interview, would love your take on it.
I'm an SDR who's excited about making it to a 4th round interview for an Smb AE role. I have 2.5 years of Sdr experience at 3 companies. I always chased and still chase that Dolla dolla bill yo. My carear so far is broken down by: 8 months at the first until they gave me an ultimatum to take a promotion(Smb AE) with a demotion in pay.
Moved to a higher paying Bdr gig with a more technical product, training and competitive heavy hitting team of 12. Grinded it out for a year and then promotion was halted "due to Covid." with others ahead of me in line and future looking glim, I bounced.
Currently I am a SDR team lead that also does a lot more than SDR work: I avoided AE jobs before I settled here. I figured no company worth it's salt is going not going to hire internally. So I chose to risk it on what the recruiter described as a "rocket ship" and while it had all the makings to be one - great venture backing, strong leadership, and a proven CRO - it also had a first-time founder and a product that wasn't as far along as it should have been. Fast forward a year and he 25 people turned to 6, I'm the last salesperson. I stayed partly because I was lazy but also because it was an incredible opportunity to learn and wear a ton of different hats and new responsibilities. I heard from leadership that we are black-listed in VC world and I think this company is going nowhere.
I know there's other job hoppers out here - can you spare some human kindness and be a big brother/sister here?
