Today marks the one-year anniversary of my frenzied winter break job application spree. It was frenzied because, as a history major who figured out she wanted to work in tech, I was clueless as to what jobs existed for non-engineers. Ultimately, I ended up applying to nearly 70 jobs and setting up chats with 20+ people in the industry–friends of friends, my academic advisor’s daughter, the guy I adopted my pet cockatiel from, literally anyone who would talk to me.
Overcoming the Stigma: The Unusual DNA of MuleSoft’s Sales Org
Three years ago, I couldn’t imagine anything worse than taking a job in sales. Cold calling, reeling off a cheesy script, “Always Be Closing”. I was a journalist at the time, and the idea of a sales gig made my skin crawl.

Sales automation technology is powerful, and sales development teams rely on it more and more to keep up with demand. However, as we keep up aggressive KPIs with automation tools, we must at the same time remember to move beyond the technology to enable and develop new sales reps and teams.
