PreSales Talks: Recruiting and getting Hired for Sales Engineering

This topic is always lively on clubhouse for presales. I've had to keep the notes brief here, but some interesting points!

For hiring managers

Employers - how to justify non-traditional hires

Process - Learn how to work with their process

Some roles - Hiring manager needs more experience

If you hire someone but think they'd be a good manager instead of an IC - be upfront, tell them about any other roles, and check if they are interested.

For job seekers

Transferable skills - Have stories to tell about your skills

Show how transferable they are

Use your influencing skills in the interviewing process.

Think of your stories as an end user

Address what the doubts your hiring might have about you upfront.

Make sure they see you in the role.
