Get started at Career Dreaming
Hey there, my name is Rob Paone, or as my friends like to call me; Rob, Bobby, Bobby Boy, Bobby P or Robby P. It doesn’t really matter, but since you’re reading this website, you’re now my friend, so feel free to call me any of the above!
You might be wondering why and how I’m qualified to be running a site like this, spouting off knowledge on the job search, sales profession and recruiting industry. Well, I’m an industry veteran technology recruiter and current software sales professional, who has always enjoyed helping friends and family members out with their job search. I’ve also loved creating websites ever since college and I thought a natural progression for my background would be to extend my platform of helping family/friends with their careers to everyone else who needs assistance.
If you’re new to the website, I’ve created this page to help show you around and how to maximize your effectiveness on Career Dreaming. As I always say, my goal here is to help turn today’s dream career into tomorrow’s reality.
Being that I’m a former recruiter, I don’t have any skin in the game, nor do I have any qualms about providing you with full, no-BS information regarding the recruiting industry, job searching, etc. I’m simply here to help you, that’s it. I want to make sure that you spend as little time in a job that you hate (or unemployed) and as much time as possible working in the career path that you truly desire and deserve.
Career Dreaming is designed to benefit the job seeker. So let’s get started below with some of our most popular content.

I wrote a book… “How (and why) to Start a Career in Software Sales” now available on Amazon! –
The software sales career content on Career Dreaming is some of the most popular and widely discussed information I’ve written about. I currently receive emails on a daily basis from professionals in multiple stages of their careers requesting assistance to get started in software sales. Because of the overwhelming scale of outreach, I decided to write a book on careers in Software Sales to help address those questions.
Entitled “How (and why) to Start a Career in Software Sales”, the book is now available for purchase on Amazon Kindle and Paperback! My goal is to answer the questions that I’ve been asked on a consistent basis, discuss the positives (and negatives) regarding a career in software in sales and outline a clear guide to getting started in the profession.
The book, which was released May 2nd, 2016, has received fantastic feedback some far from readers of all experience levels and backgrounds. Just take for example what reader Alex sent to me after reading the book via email!
“Hey Rob, Just wanted to follow up after reading your book. I binge read the whole thing in an hour. I couldn’t get enough of it and just kept turning the pages. After reading through your posts on the website combined with reading the book, I am confident that a career in software sales is something that I would love pursue.” – Alex
