It is great interacting Joshua, you can tell he is 100% committed to helping everyone succeed and thrive in software sales
I stumbled upon Josh's course during a point in my life I had no idea what I wanted to do. I had thought about sales for some time and especially loved technology. After taking the course I was extremely prepared for a job as an SDR for a SaaS company. I blew the doors off of my first interview portraying my konwledge from the course and landed a job at TriNet. I am in my third month and loving life. A complete 180 from where I was 6 months from now. Thanks Josh!
Joshua has put together a phenomenal training for future SDRs with PreHired. From developing accurate buyer personas to managing closed deals, PreHired covers all aspects of the sales development process.
The integration of software and automation was my favorite section - the concepts and recommendations have made my workflow more efficient. Although I'm not new to sales, Josh's streamlined process has helped me raise the bar and challenge myself to be better in sales conversations.
The best part? This is just the beginning. I know from several conversations with Josh that he has a genuine heart to see future SDRs succeed and he's working 'round the clock to make the program even better. His open mind to member feedback and relentless ambition to make the best software training on the planet will keep PreHired around for years to come.
Anyone looking for a long-lasting career in software sales needs to join PreHired asap!
Going into my senior year of college I knew I wanted to enter the world of startups and entrepreneurship. With no real business or tech skills, Josh gave me my first real opportunity. Never having been in sales, I knew basically nothing. But through Josh's mentorship and coaching, I've learned the in's and out's of the entire sales process. His attention to detail and training style make it very easy to grasp different concepts from sales tools to email copy to running meetings. Although I've only been in the software sales space for a little over a year, I feel I am years beyond my experience and I truly owe it all to Josh. Many people are surprised that I've only been in sales for a year, but again, that is all thanks to Josh. If you ever get to work with Josh, or at least be trained by him, your career will thank him later.
I came from a completely different background than sales but I definitely see the parallels between sales and healthcare. With both, you’re identifying people’s pain points and offering a solution to help them.
I was coming back into the workforce after spending some time raising my family and it was the perfect time to transition into a new career path. I’d started my business degree a few years earlier but this seemed like a practical and immediately useful way to begin a career in sales.
I was very cautious when I first came across the preHIRED program because I thought it was just too good to be true. I actually considered putting it off to “just wait and see” but I kept coming back to it.
Learning how to implement lead generation through social connections, writing effective emails and executing strategic sales calls as well as applying stellar sales automation tools to the sales process were all invaluable. I feel ready to tackle a big project and crush it!
I’m excited about using all of this information wherever I land! Thanks Josh and preHIRED!
I came across Joshua's Sales Development training course after a mutual friend referred me to Joshua for having a world class program that could help me get my foot in the high end tech sales industry. Prehired taught me everything I could ever want to know about Sales Development, how to use a CRMs, sales automation, email automation, lead generation and the list just goes on and on… Overall, my experience with Prehired was awesome! I felt like I wasn’t only being taught, but I was actually being equipped with people who actually care, who know what they are doing, who know how to help you get the job, and how to crush it in the workplace! Thanks Joshua!
I was doing business development and sales for Maserati and Bentley for the last 2 years.
While I love cars, I don't enjoy the sales process of selling cars. I always felt like my work was a job and not a career. I wanted to work in an industry I was passionate about and could see myself growing with.
When I first saw the preHIRED ad on facebook it seemed too good to be true. Entry level jobs never earn that much! After doing research about preHIRED and the software sales industry, it all started to feel more realistic. My favorite part of the preHIRED program was how it showed you to use every tool you'll need (and much more) and how to use them with maximum efficiency. Not only does it do a great job teaching you how to sell software, it also does a great job teaching you how to sell yourself as an employee. If you're considering preHIRED know that it's well worth the money! Thank you, Josh
I am relatively new to sales, and had been taught many antiquated techniques that just don't work in today's high-tech sales environment. Josh's Science-Based Sales® methodology and teaching platform cleared the slate for me and I'm confident in what it takes to be top performer in this profession.
Josh's certification process is linear, easy to follow and very accessible to a neophyte such as myself. I am now confident in every step of the sales development process from soup-to-nuts...open-to-close.
You could search for months online looking for the random blogs, videos and articles BUT you would not even get a fraction of the info that Science-Based Sales® delivers into one convenient package. And believe me, because I've been looking for ages, and I finally found the right spot with Prehired.
Josh's delivery is crystal clear, precise and never boring. It feels like one-on-one tutoring. I'm looking forward to applying this knowledge to a satisfying (and well-paying) position in sales development.
Our latest on preHIRED
Philip Jansen worked in Real Estate and ministry for several years in Nashville; but after the adoption of his son, he wanted to future-proof his career by breaking into the tech industry. Philip chose to switch careers into software sales with the help of online Sales Bootcamp preHIRED. See how the preHIRED job guarantee worked, what he did to land a Sales Development Representative role at Outreach.io, and why Philip believes there’s “a lot of faith and humility involved when switching careers.”
What led you to change careers and attend a Sales Bootcamp like preHIRED?
I wanted to do better for my family and our future. I had been in ministry for several years and my income was strapped. I was a staff pastor at our local church and participated in missions work. So I did not generate a ton of income for my family at that time, even though we understood that was part of the sacrifice in the life of ministry.
My wife and I loved working in the church, but when our son came along, things began to change. I switched jobs and worked at a real estate company. I had been involved in Nashville real estate for several years doing fix-and-flips, personal investments, and admin work, so it was an industry I knew very well; I could just show up and get to work. But, I was still not making enough to support my family. I drove for Uber and delivered for Uber Eats four or five nights a week just to make it. I considered doing real estate sales, but I had questions about how the real estate vertical could be impacted by new and emerging technologies like Zillow, Redfin, and OpenDoor. I didn’t have a lot of confidence about building a business in an industry that I believed was due for disruption.
I started thinking, “What’s an industry that’s not going anywhere? What are we becoming more dependent on as a society?” – and the answer is the internet, software, and artificial intelligence! I started my research and pulled the trigger pretty quickly.
A lot of people attend bootcamps to become a web developer – how did you know that you were suited for a software sales career?
I did a lot of introspection, soul-searching, and personality tests to figure out my next steps. I started listening to some new voices via audiobooks and podcasts while I was delivering food. I’m a high communicator – I am the ‘I’ on the DISC profile which is well suited for people in sales. I also don’t type as fast as a developer should type, and I did not want to sit behind a computer coding all day. I was a communications major in college, I enjoy talking with people, I’m good at public speaking, and I’m confident talking on the phone – sales was a no-brainer for me.
Did you research other bootcamps or college courses? Why did you choose preHIRED?
I was researching online about software and software sales when a preHIRED advertisement about making six figures selling software appeared. I’ve taken different webinar classes in the past where you pay a few hundred bucks, and then you turn your knowledge into a stream of income. I know that those types of programs work for me as long as I follow what it tells me to follow – so I enrolled.
What was the application and interview process like for you?
I applied online and then had a phone interview. It was a 30-minute call and after they heard my story, the preHIRED team felt like I was a good candidate for the bootcamp.
PreHIRED is online – did you work with other students during the course?
There’s a launch date where students start at the same time on different courses, but when I took the course, there was no online interaction with other students. If I needed some help from Josh, the Founder and CEO, or other preHIRED staff, I had the opportunity to reach out via email or online chat. But I rarely sought help because the course material was pretty self explanatory.
What was the sales learning experience like at preHIRED — tell me about the curriculum, a typical day and the teaching style?
It’s a fully online course that you work through at your own pace, but I was putting in about 4 hours a day. It involves reading materials, watching videos, and completing assignments. There was no live teaching. The program includes detailed overviews of many of the major CRM software tools such as Salesforce and Hubspot, as well as exciting sales engagement platforms like Outreach. That’s where I was introduced to the potential at Outreach.io.
I was working at the real estate office when I first enrolled in preHIRED, and a few days later, I decided to go all in, so I put in my 2-week notice and started implementing the course material full-time. I had completed it in about 3 weeks.
Was the curriculum project-based? Did you do any real-world Sales projects?
The main project, or goal, of the entire program, is to teach you how to initiate a sales cycle to land a job as an SDR. So preHIRED shows you how to position yourself as an attractive hire, they teach you the major tools that you’re going to be using, and then they focus most of the instruction on how to prospect and follow up with hiring managers. Then it’s up to the student put in the work and trust the process.
How did the PreHIRED job guarantee work for you? When did you start looking for a job?
preHIRED’s job guarantee is tied to your ability to find a job. The whole course is geared toward landing a job with a software company as a Sales Development Representative (SDR). preHIRED teaches you how to use software to prospect into companies to land a job on a company’s sales team. Part of the final project requires you show the skills that you’ve been taught, by showing evidence of your research, interviews, and landing a job in sales – and that’s how you receive your certification.
How did PreHIRED prepare you for that job hunt?
preHIRED prepares you in advance. There’s a lot of content in the curriculum about what to expect in the interview, types of questions you’ll be asked, software languages, and terms you’ll need to know. I had never heard of 95% of the software being used in the course. Yet, when I started getting job interviews, preHIRED helped prepare me with the appropriate sales knowledge and lingo. I was fielding software sales interview requests during my last days of work in the real estate office. Fortunately, I was hired at Outreach about 10 days after my last day on the job.
Tell us about your new sales job at Outreach!
The program worked really well for me. Because I had quit my job in real estate, I was all in, and there was no plan B. I received 3 job offers, and they were all really great opportunities. Based on where the company is heading and their reputation, I held out for an offer from Outreach as a Sales Development Representative (SDR). In short, Outreach is a sales engagement platform that optimizes the reps’ sales process and allows them to power through outreach and follow-up activities at three times the speed.
We essentially solve 3 major pain points sales teams have:
- We put our clients’ sales processes into a structured series of touch points which takes care of their follow-up process. This ensures that every lead is thoroughly worked, never gets lost, and receives the 5 to 12 touches where 80% of sales happen. Marketing teams love this because we help bridge the gap between marketing and sales.
- We do all the administrative work for our clients’ teams within their CRM (Salesforce). This frees up their reps time, logs their activities automatically, and gives clients 100% accurate reporting. Sales teams love this because they no longer have to waste time logging data in the CRM.
- Finally, we open up the "Black Box" of sales and show clients in real time how each rep is performing, what activities they're doing, and what is and isn't working. This provides a solid foundation to accurately forecast results, improve outreach, and train clients’ teams. Management teams love this because they can get average reps and new hires performing like seasoned pros.
Two weeks after getting the offer, I moved my family from Nashville to Tampa. The next week, I flew to Seattle for Outreach’s onboarding bootcamp and in my class, I was the first SDR to achieve a sales accepted lead, which is how we gauge our success as SDRs. In my first and second full months, I achieved 300% of my quota. I’m currently in my third month where I’m number two on a team of 11. I’m performing at the same level as very experienced Sales Development Representatives at Outreach. I’ve been very fortunate.
How has the first few months been in the new world of software sales? How does Outreach ensure you’re ramping up and continuing to learn?
I’ve been drinking from a firehose – there’s so much content, all the time. The company is at about 350 employees, but two years ago they were at 70 – it’s a rocket ship. Our onboarding process includes a buddy program, and there’s a specific step-by-step process and four-month ramp to follow. Your quota progressively increases during the four months, so my quota is not a full SDR quota. Although, I actually did hit a full quota last month. Next month, I’ll be a fully ramped-up SDR and expected to hit full quota.
What’s been the biggest challenge or roadblock to switching to software sales?
It’s completely different than anything that I’ve ever done in my entire life. Something Tony Robbins says has been super important for me – “success leaves clues.” Whenever you’re changing careers so drastically, realize that successful people were successful way before we came along. There are tons of successful SDRs, SDR managers, and account executives at Outreach, so if you literally follow what they tell you to do and trust the process, 99% of the time you are going to be successful. People try to reinvent the wheel too frequently. If you need to tweak the process down the road once you feel more comfortable, go for it. You can’t think you’re an expert in a completely new field. I adopted that concept very early on – humility goes a long way when changing careers.
What advice do you have for people making a career change through a bootcamp?
preHIRED is built for you to succeed. Bootcamps are built for career changers. If you’re curious, there are really strong online bootcamp courses to help you be successful. I’ve been successful with other webinar courses in the past, but this preHIRED course is definitely going to yield the most sustainable fruit in my life. And that’s the whole purpose – preHIRED helps you to be successful in a career change. Trust the process, even if it looks like it’s not working out, continue to trust the process. There’s a lot of faith and humility involved when switching careers. If you choose to enroll in a bootcamp – follow the instructions A to Z, and make it happen.
In the coding bootcamp industry in June 2018 the biggest trend we saw was coding bootcamps funneling grads into apprenticeships! We also saw two big fundraises by bootcamp-adjacent organizations, we heard about some interesting new legislation which could change how online bootcamps operate, and some bootcamp alumni launched exciting new careers. We also look at the effect bootcamps are having on tech industries in areas around the world, which bootcamps are offering scholarships to help women and underrepresented groups launch tech careers, and partnerships bootcamps are forming with big companies like Facebook.
