Tech Sales Program

PROGRAMMING PROVIDED BY:

JUMPSTART YOUR TECH SALES CAREER | Get Trained. Get Mentored. Get Placed.

As the tech industry continuously introduces innovative services and products, tech sales roles have become more crucial than ever. The individuals taking these positions are typically referred to as Sales Development Representatives (SDRs). While SDRs don’t necessarily need to have a background in coding or computer science to be successful, they must have their finger on the pulse of all things tech, and have the business savvy to figure out the best customer for their company and execute winning sales strategies. SDRs are in the front lines of the tech biz, connecting with customers and clients, and coming up with the smartest solutions for their problems. 


With SV Academy’s Sales Development Program, you will develop an advanced skill set, become a part of a strong network and community, and get hired in a tech sales position. 

 

Plus, you will receive additional soft skills training from ENTITY Academy in areas such as confidence, collaboration, public speaking, and so much more! You will also have access to the ENTITY Academy Mentor Network and be invited to Live Speaker events. You won't just be gaining the indispensable hard and soft skills, you will be connected to the people who can take your career to the next level.

 

Tech sales is a field that is always in-demand, exciting, and lucrative. If you are an innovative, ambitious mind who wants to upskill in the non-coding side of tech, this course will give you the start that you need to break into the industry.

WHY THE 

CAREER

PORTAL OFFERS YOU AN ADVANTAGE

I thought it was really sweet you couldn't find this position anywhere else. Since these are trying times, there’s been a general lack of jobs. Having first access to a job position through the ENTITY network is nice. It’s great to have a first look at jobs you can't find anywhere else.

I love the fact that I get to work with female entrepreneurs and work flexible hours from home at the same time. The ENTITY job announcements are great for me to access resources and opportunities that I wouldn’t have come across otherwise.

Employer Testimonials

This is a market where it's hard to find great talent. It's really hard to find people who are willing to start at the bottom and work their way up, who are driven, and are going to progress quickly. SV Academy is that group. You will find talented, driven individuals who add to your culture, who make your customers feel good, who learn your product and solutions very quickly, and you will want to promote them. SV Academy is the best source of SDR talent on the market, bar none."

JENNY STRAUSS| HR DIRECTOR, INSIDEVIEW

SV Academy alumni's biggest strengths are their growth-mindset and their hunger for candid feedback on how they can be better. They also have real adaptability and resilience. At fast-moving companies, where there's hyper-growth, things change really quickly and you have to be ready to roll with the punches sometimes to figure out what's going to be the new challenge. I think SV Academy brings forth candidates who are really ready to adapt to change, stay resilient, and stay positive throughout.
