Are you ready for career disruption? Have you ever wanted to work at Google, Facebook, Amazon, or a hot tech startup?

My most successful business venture profited about $72,000....but that took about 7 years to realize. Divided out by 7 years that would put my income below the poverty level HOORAY STARTING A BUSINESS ← (insert sarcasm)Feeling like a failure, I decided to get a "job" to support myself. I had no real skills, so I got a "Gateway Job" as a Sales Development Representative (a fancy title for "meeting setter"), but by doing this I got mentorship, sales training, and shockingly made over $100,000 in my first year. This "Gateway Job" taught me far more than my business ever did (not to mention paid me far more).This opened my eyes into this highly-paid, highly-in-demand world of technology. I watched these technology "Gateway Jobs" rocket people from: -Austin started as a marketing intern at Uber, now she's on the executive team of a $70billion company. -Jim went from a customer support rep wearing a phone headset all day, to moving up the company ladder, to getting a juicy exit when the company IPO'd. -Karina went from Macy's retail, moved up to sales development, and now has a six-figure a year job as a senior renewals account manager.By the end of this book you will have a solid idea of which of the 38 "Gateway Job" will be the best way to break into (and have a successful & lucrative career) in departments such as marketing, sales, finance, operations, IT, legal, development, product management, customer support, and HR.
