It was approaching the end of the school year in the spring of 2017. I was working as a Para Professional for the School District of San Francisco and had been working in that position for a year.
Prior to that, since I moving to San Francisco I have worked a total of 8 jobs in 3 years. I had bounced around trying to find an income that would keep my head above water while living on my own for the first time and it didn’t help that I was living in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
There was a low point where I accepted a job to work overnight shifts at a warehouse. It was a nightmare. I felt it was a place where people went to die. I worked as a prep cook, for a delivery service, Uber, Lyft, after school program and ended up as a Para Professional.
I thought I was in a good place until I had a talk with one of my mentors who's been in tech sales for over 10 years. I admired everything he had, his family, his house which he owned and the house next door, able to work remotely and spend a lot of time with his kids. In short, I wanted what he had, I just had no idea how to get there.
It wasn’t until we were having a conversation about my career and goals that I wanted to achieve and he introduced me to the Always Hired Tech Sales Bootcamp. His nephew recently went through the program and started his new job at yelp just a few weeks after graduating.
I was all in, and went through the interview process and finished the boot camp a month after the school year was over. It took me about a month and a half to find the right job. But there is no doubt in my mind that I landed in the right place and I am now working at Reciprocity Inc. here in San Francisco and am the 4th SDR on the team and I am living the dream!
I had no prior sales experience and was afraid that it wasn’t going to work out for me. But the staff at Always Hired really takes care of you and is fully invested in making you a well oiled selling machine!
If you want to change your career and get into the tech industry without a doubt, Always Hired is your best route!
