Translation - I’m interviewing for professional services sales roles

Curious if any folks have insight on the interview process at AWS, MSFT or Adobe. What should I expect? Anything specific to prepare for?

I’m targeting service sales roles at those 3 companies specifically. I already have the initial interviews lined up - beginning this week - for account exec roles.

Quick background - 10 years experience providing digital strategy consulting to Fortune 500 and fed govt. MBA. Current TC = $180. I’ve naturally progressed in consulting from 100% delivery to 50/50 delivery and sales. I’ve found my knack in sales and now looking to formally transition (+ reap the benefits of commission).

Any and all advice would be much appreciated.

    Just reading the subject, I'm pretty sure the OP is interviewing to be a pimp. Or perhaps they've invented MLM prostitution.

      MLM prostitution seems like a promising concept

      OP
      What can I expect for the interviews? Are they typically pretty straightforward focused on experience? Are case studies common for these types of roles? Would I be expected to mock-pitch one of their solutions?

      I’m trying to understand how best to prepare.
