Career Journey

Chris Dracos

A typical day consists of meeting with customers face-to-face and uncovering new opportunities. I meet with my virtual team to develop potential opportunities, sales plans, etc. Additionally, I collaborate with my Inside Sales Account Manager at least once a day to ensure that we are aligned on our work. I visit between 5 and 12 customers per week.

At Dell, I learned about career progression by understanding available processes and resources. One starting point for me was my individual development plan. I talked to my mentor about potential next roles and then focused on the specific role best suited to my skills and the experiences that I wanted.

Dell has a great culture of friendliness and is a fun place to work. My colleagues are always willing to help. I also enjoy working at a multinational company, which has given me the opportunity to work with people from various places such as India and China.

I am not currently looking for any specific type of experience –I am open to everything. I have worked with almost all types of customers at this point in my career. Currently, I am really enjoying my role and trying to get as much out of this experience as possible.

In the future, I would like to handle a set of fewer but more complex enterprise accounts. I would also consider moving into management.

Work hard. Achieve small goals and people will automatically take notice of your work. Build your brand within the business. Think about your long term career goals, and focus on a specific role to move into rather than several roles. Have a good individual development plan. Identify and speak to the right people in the business, and find a mentor.
