The typical duration in the Sales Development Representative role is 12-18 months, so I didn’t expect a promotion into the Enterprise Business Development Rep role, but management said, you can do it and we know it! So, I just jumped in. I was moved from a SDR role straight into an enterprise-level BDR position. For the first three or four days, I wondered if I would be able to do it. But, in a month or two, I knew it was a good decision because the role came naturally to me.
The amount of trust they showed in my capabilities was truly humbling. To be in a workplace where you’re encouraged to get outside your comfort zone and go for a role you may not think you're ready for yet is a great place to be.
The job is very interesting. Every day is different. You can’t wake up thinking you know how the day will go. That’s the exciting part about the job — it feels like a start-up, not an 19-year old company. I can set my own schedule and be creative in this role, which is one of the most exciting things about it.
