Let us help you hire your next SAAS BDR.
You need to hire Tech Sales Pros. And it has not been easy.
On any given day, there are thousands of job openings for Tech Salespersons on LinkedIn and Indeed, perhaps including your ad. You are looking to hire sales persons that can talk to customers, understand their needs, demonstrate software products and generate revenue. Furthermore, for a small/mid sized SAAS company, it is extremely difficult to get noticed and get the attention of prospective Tech Sales workers. On the other side, there are a lot of qualified sales professionals currently working in other industries who are looking to enter the world of Technology Sales. Our goal is to bridge that gap by up-skilling the workers and placing them in your company.
Hands-on Sales Training
Our Tech Sales Program is an interactive learning experience wherein the students “learn by doing”. It is a Live, In-person, Online class in which the students are required to log in during class hours, turn on their camera and actively participate. Under the guidance of an industry-expert instructor, they learn and practice real world selling skills. They even perform mock sales discovery meetings and product demonstrations with their classmates. Our goal is to make them ready to sell from the first day on the job!
Remote or On-site job placements?
We can assist employers recruit sales talent in either scenario. Although, in our experience, when companies are flexible and allow remote workers, it opens up opportunities to hire talent from across the country.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: So is Procareer Academy a headhunter then?
A: No. As you are aware, headhunters are contractors hired to search for qualified candidates on their client’s behalf. They usually poach from one company to place at another, with no value added in the process. Our mission is to up-skill current sales persons to increase the total pool of Tech Sales workers. Our goal is to benefit both the employers and the workers.
Q: Can you give us a sample Tuition Assistance & Repayment Contract?
A: Yes we will be glad to do so. However, we are not in a position to offer any legal advice and take no responsibility regarding its content. We strongly suggest you to have your lawyer review it before you use it.
Q: What if the employee leaves the company before the term of the contract?
A: We urge our employer partners to conduct proper due diligence prior to making a job offer to the candidate. If the employee still leaves the company prior to the agreed upon employment period, then the company should enforce the contract.
