(asset management) Questions to ask Senior Sales executive during lunch, career progression discussion
I work for a large institutional asset management organization as a relationship associate. My day to day includes servicing a huge book of corporate pension business as well as supporting the sales team (one senior who kicks major ass and one junior who is a nepotism hire and produces next to nothing).
The senior has been leaning on me to do some of the juniors tasks, coordinating product research, competitive Intel, prospect research, and internal reporting for his external selling.
I'm planning on taking the senior to lunch and being very frank with him about my desire to get on the sales team.
I'm under the assumption that if he is giving me this work he has some trust in me (moreso than the junior whose job I'm basically doing).
What are some good questions to ask /things to talk about during this lunch meeting? I really enjoy working with him and I am happy to do the work he rolls down my way but I know for a fact the Jr makes 2.5x the money I make and we have the exact same credentials.
Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you.
