Telecom AE, Advice on breaking into higher paying AE positions? Feeling underpaid
Hi guys, I am an Account Executive at Sprint (NYC). I am a top performer blowing out my quota consistently over 450% every month. As an AE at Sprint I sell telecom (obviously) and SaaS solutions such as 365, Gsuite, and cyber security solutions. My salary is very low $49,600 however I am on target to make $175,000 this year. I have closed multiple big deals but I am feeling severely underpaid and want to make a move. I don’t want to do anything else but sell, I absolutely love sales. I want to transition to an AE role at Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, AWS, Slack, ProofPoint, Box, DropBox, and so on. I have been applying but struggling to get interviews. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I have 4 years experience as an AE split between AT&T and Sprint. I would appreciate any career advice and would even be happy to meet up for coffee sometime for those in NYC. I really want to stay in sales and do not want a management position. Thoughts? Thanks again!
