I just got word that my next interview with my #1 targeted job is this Thursday!!! I have 3 internal champions at this company who are supporting me, including one person that will be a peer, should, I mean when I get this job. I have been told that the first year is a grueling and tumultuous part of life at this company due to how they pay and how many people want to work there. I have few thoughts:
My annual quota as a manager will be north of $50M. The most I have ever managed is approx. $500K/annually. The two comparisons are not to scale (not even close) but it will nevertheless be a jump. My intention is to talk about how I plan to scale up to that number by using my account managers and their relationships with their partners (VAR's). Any other suggestions?
I have also learned that people that take this job usually end up at other jobs within the company (laterally or demotion) due to the intensity of the position. What is the best way to address my concern for the high turnover?
Lastly, the person I am meeting with will ultimately be my manager. I am told by an internal employee that positions like I am applying for are a couple levels higher than what I am used to at my previous employer. Needless to say, I am slightly intimidated (just because I know that I wouldn't be considered for a position 2 levels higher than my last one). I am going after it head on but want to make sure my bases are covered. Any insight would be great.
