Have 5 years sales experience. I also was a top producer for a fortune 500 company.
Was told(by a 10 yr med rep)3 months ago, that even though I am a great canidate for a 80-100k position,right now, experienced reps have been laid off and will be competing for mid level postions. He advised me to interview entry level bc the tenured reps will not want those postions.
Are experienced reps now competing for entry level jobs as well?
Was initially very confident because of past success in sales, but starting to get frustrated. The interviews I have been on(medium-fortune 500) filled the position with 'experience'. Or that's all I was told.
I have an interview for an associate position(50-60k/year)next week. Figured I wouldnt be going up against an experienced med rep. I'll take what I can get,but I made over 80k at my last position. I am also pushing 30. Time's a wastin' What can I do?
