As an online education provider we were in a very fortunate position, and we’ve successfully run hundreds of online meetings over the past 12 months.
What Does an Account Executive Do, Anyway?
As we enter the festive season, it’s time to get wrapping, cooking, and preparing yourself for the recurrent trial of explaining to your relatives what it is that you actually do for a living. If you’ve been working in account management for a while, chances are it won’t be the first year that you’ve had to politely explain that despite what Aunt Anne tells all her friends, you’re still, without a doubt, not an accountant.
