Google cloud salesman looking for job

Jul 26, 2017 16 Comments

I'm a sales manager at a #google #cloud partner.
Hit quota this year.
4 years sales experience.
One year cloud sales experience.

What're the chances I can get a sales role at #AWS, #Google, #MSFT, or #Amazon?

Thoughts? Recommendations?

    Chances are high. Go for it.
    At Google’s careers website - search for relevant terms and setup an email alert for new positions that match that search term(works a lot like news alerts). That way anytime a position with that keyword opens up you get an email. Very helpful.
    Amazon has new positions opening up every day.
    I'd suggest update your LinkedIn profile and sign up for the job alerts. You'll get job search matches often.
    I hope your resume is ready.

      Thank you, much appreciated. I'll definitely take a look and set up alerts. Resume is ready. Anyone know what that interview process looks like?

      1. HR screening
      2. Telephonic with a manager or someone senior
      3. Telephonic similar to the above
      4. Onsite - between 4 and 6 rounds

      Decision in two to three days after the onsite round.

      1. HR screen
      2. Technical phone round
      3. Phone round(not mandatory)
      4. Onsite around 4 rounds
      5. HR but formality

      Decision timelines can vary but give it a week.

    Google has been hiring lots of Sellers and partner folks from our partners.

    hey dude, the timing couldn't be better. 4 years of sales experience might be a good match for their Inside Sales teams - the job titles at Google don't usually reflect what the jobs are about too well so check out the specs on careers page. Hope you find something!

      Doesn't seem better in MSFT or AMZN
