Kristin and the Vendition team were beyond helpful with securing a job in tech for me. I’m forever grateful for Kristin’s support and continuous communication through my job search. Now I’m at a company whose atmosphere is not only awesome, but a perfect place to grow to new heights. Thanks Vendition!
Becoming a recent college graduate who has only worked in the banking industry, I knew that making a transition into tech with zero background would be not only extremely difficult, but also highly competitive. My biggest fear was failing to find myself a job in such an intense industry. I applied to Vendition’s sales apprenticeship program and they directed me to finding the perfect entry-level SaaS sales position within two weeks. They continued to mentor me the entire way with helpful coaching, support, and because of this, I was able to transform immediately into a full-time position at our growing company. I honestly wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Thank you Vendition!
When the Vendition team reached out, they showed me that there are a ton of opportunities in the industry right now, which I didn’t realize because it was so hard trying to find a job on my own and I didn’t know where to start. They asked me a lot of questions to get to know my personality and what I was looking for in my next position, and really customized the process. I learned that the Sales Development Representative position is the foundation of launching a prominent career in the software industry and told the team that my ideal work environment is high energy, very fast moving, and very engaging, with no room for boredom or putting aside your work, always reaching out to people in high volume, learning what works and what doesn’t work. This SDR role made me figure out that I like to be in a pressing, high volume work environment, with consistent energy throughout the day. The team helped me find exactly that.
Vendition was a great resource for me to transition into the sales industry. When you have a great team to support you, it’s not hard to come in to grind. It’s not a secret, if you work hard you succeed. After they give you all the resources and assistance you need, it’s on you to make it worth it.
Vendition really set me up for success in the tech sales industry. Besides my own personal drive, BuildingConnected was able to lay out a good path for me and other fellow SDRs, showing us that they are willing to promote if we work hard enough. I recommend Vendition’s program to anyone interested in a career in tech sales.
Vendition has taught me to be clear on my expectations. Ashleigh helped me to stay plugged into my leadership and rest in that. My CEO would set an expectation, and in my mind I would need to double that. It’s always good to go above and beyond but that brings on unnecessary pressure when really it’s time to learn the process. I’ve already told my leadership that this program is something Smack needs to use to onboard any future new hires. Ashleigh was able to help train me without removing anyone else from their responsibilities, and for that I feel even more prepared to help train the next person coming into my role specifically.
Vendition really helped me get my foot in the door and break into the tech sales space, and I am very thankful for that. The team is really willing to help you no matter how long it takes to get you there and will continue to support you after.
Working with Vendition gave me a lot of options, big or small, with different types of products and services. My Relationship Manager really broke down all the different opportunities that would be available to me. I wanted something that was very mission-driven and personal and professional growth for me. It took me one or two tries but I couldn’t have asked for a better fit.
The transition [from apprentice to full hire] felt relatively seamless – it wasn’t just a three month scam to just get some cheap work, but a really supportive program to support my long term career growth. [Our CEO] went out of his way to make sure the transition went through as smoothly as possible.
Overall, [Vendition’s Apprenticeship] is a wonderful program–you guys were there for me when trying to transition out of my past role. It’s awesome what James and the team have been able to build, to give opportunities for people like me to shift careers.
Vendition made me more hirable and easier to ramp up—I just really appreciate the program for getting me here.
I’m grateful to have gone through Vendition’s Apprenticeship program and to have landed a job at a company I fit in with, the overall experience has been very positive. I was able to convert into a full time role after ten weeks, and the company is continuously pushing for growth. Ashleigh was amazing in helping me through the transitions, and without her guidance and mentorship I definitely would not have been able to work through all the challenges and do this well.
I came from a place with no experience in tech, and Vendition was able to help me get through that barrier. A lot of companies I applied to that initially rejected me actually reached out to me after I went through Vendition. I really appreciate the team in helping me get my foot in the door and figuring out my career path. Regardless of what and where you come from, if you really want to develop a career in tech sales, Vendition can help you. I am doing very well at Hustle and am grateful for this experience.
A friend recommend Vendition because the best SDR's on his team came out of this program and they earn access to the best companies. Exposure to a top global opportunity at AppsFlyer would not have been possible without leveraging Vendition's SDR Bootcamp, Career Coaching, network and full-package training that the Vendition Sales Apprenticeship delivers. Thank you so much to the team at Vendition for such a fantastic program and opportunity!
The great thing about working with Ashleigh is that she gets to know you as a salesperson and an individual. She helped me with calendar management and organizing CRM on the back end. Sometimes I get a little disorganized, which only hurts my sales process. Ashleigh taught me how to use my time more effectively.
It’s been a learning experience where I thought I knew the basics on how to be a salesperson, and I really didn’t. I’ve learned a lot from Ashleigh, and I’ve learned a lot from Mend. This apprenticeship has made me into someone who's more influential and into someone who can create a process.
I completed my three month apprenticeship, and I converted into a full hire. A week later, I moved into a management position, because they created a role for me to become SDR manager. Immediately I was managing the team and they moved another guy I started with to inbound — so we’re both rocking it.
I’m really grateful to have found Vendition. It’s been a huge relief to go from being so stressed out to feeling financially secure and having people invest in me. The Vendition team did a great job, it fit the first time.
When I started this process, I was looking for a 1) remote only opportunity that was 2) in a high-growth tech startup, and 3) had a clearly defined path to $100k+ in income. Through Vendition, I’ve achieved those goals and I got exactly what I was looking for.
