Hello I am contemplating working for a business
consulting company as a sales person. This position is a 100% commission based job. My desire is actually to move in to consulting space but I am taking this sales position in hopes of adding management consulting experience on my resume (I have 30 years of broad ranging experience but no direct Management consulting experience.). However there is non compete. copied below.
My understanding of non compete is, that it restricts me from taking a possible with another management consulting company to do business in the same geographi area I was working here and also the same companies I was involved with. So if I take a management company job not in the same geographic area or same area but not with same list of clients that I worked with then it is OK?? Please let me know.
