Almost 1 year. Then I was hired on by my client.
I was a BDR for my client for the last year and now I’m moving into an Agency Sales Role. It’s a spinoff we’re doing for voluntary benefits. We’re building the plane as we fly it. It’s going to be fun.
I had a job right out of college. However, when the Trump administration took over, it was rough sailing for the first month and they ended up laying off 6 groups of people. I was one of them. That’s when I came over to SEG.
Just the fact that it got me out there and I was able to network with other sales professionals. Working with a certain company, getting to know the industry, the market, and the people within that market, you become a sort of expert. You get to learn the industry you are in. That’s what really excited me about it.
Everyone at SUG knows how it goes. Sales can become a cutthroat industry. Having the people that are there, your friends, etc. They become more of a tight knit family. My team was 13-14 people at one point. A lot of those people I still talk to on a repeated basis. They become more family than friends. On the floor there’s more of a comradery. It’s sales so it’s still competitive but it’s more a friendly competition.
When my client created their own BDR team I was able to pioneer the whole BDR team here. I was able to take my skills from SEG and apply them directly to the job that I’m doing now. The industry is such a rock and roll rollercoaster – it’s up and down on a daily basis. It’s tough to handle sometimes. It prepared me for the long run. You never know when you’re going to have a hot or cold month. My first three months I set 70 meetings at SEG. It prepares you for the rollercoaster and the hard work. It prepares you for the future.
I had my first “Closed Won.” I had a meeting that ended up closing about a year after I set the meeting. I took the meeting back in Sept 2017 and it officially closed in Aug 2018. It took a whole year for it to close. The entire time I was wondering if one of my deals was ever going to close and how long it would take. When my first one closed, I realized that the work we put in is useful and fruitful. We actually matter as BDRs. It’s sometimes easy to get lost and think “how much am I really impacting the business? And how much am I really cared about”. Once I saw that people remembered my name because of my outreach, I was shocked. That was cool and it stuck out to me because I realized my job mattered.
