That is, if receiving proper sales training and perks like catered lunches and a two-month paid leave are important to you.
But first, why should you consider a career in sales?
Anyone who works in a high-growth and fast-paced industry will tell you that sales is one of the most important roles in a company for its focus on educating clients and solving real business problems.
And the fact that it offers salespeople great opportunities for growth and fast-career progression is a huge plus.
But for many people, a job in sales can seem intimidating because of the myth that selling is a skill you have to be “born with.” That’s not the case. In fact, with proper coaching and enough learning opportunities, anyone can be a top performer in sales. The biggest challenge is finding an employer that will invest in you.
Enter Top Hat, one of Canada’s fastest growing startups that’s making headlines for its technology that’s helping to make higher education more affordable and effective. The company’s technological innovation and rapid growth have been recognized with numerous awards, and its momentum is showing no signs of slowing down.
Top Hat is undergoing a period of rapid growth and has launched a hiring spree in its sales department. This isn’t going to be your average sales role.
The company is investing in the next generation of sales leaders by providing them with training and opportunities that will not only benefit them in their sales careers, but will also set them up for careers in senior management and leadership roles.
Top Hat is looking for candidates with 1 to 4 years of sales experience. Those with 1 to 2 years of experience will be trained through Top Hat Sales University, a two-year training program that covers the fundamentals of sales. This includes everything from building rapport and credibility, prospecting and pipeline management, to closing tactics, negotiation, and leadership skills.
Bonus: Upon completion, graduates receive a certificate and up to two months of paid leave. Folks, that’s two months you can spend travelling, volunteering, and just generally doing whatever you want – while still getting paid.
