    Successfully transitioned into tech!

    Before I discovered the PreSales Academy, I had been trying to transition into the tech industry for months with no luck. The PSA provided me with the structure and guidance that I needed to achieve my goal, and now I am a Solutions Engineer!  This is not just any regular old boot camp, they really take the time to get to know you and your strengths.  They coach you throughout the process and help you use and be confident of your transferable skills.  One thing that sets this program apa...

    Great Experience and Support

    I was accepted to Cohort #6 (Oct 2022) for PreSales Academy (PSA). Overall I felt completely supported the whole process.  The classes are only twice per week in the evenings so it worked with my existing work schedule and family obligations. What separates PSA from other Sales Engineering bootcamps is the level of detail and support you get since the cohorts are small in size. Also having the backing of the entire PreSales Collective organization made it easier to network and make conne...

    Landed a job 3 months after graduating

    I have a background in Physics and worked as a laser engineer for 4 years before making the switch to PreSales. Entry level sales/solutions engineer roles have become hyper-competitive, and PreSales Academy was the best choice I made in order set myself apart. Below is a list of things that stood out when I was looking into the program and that contributed to my success during and after:

    PSA was amazing

    I am a graduate of PSA's cohort #4 which started in June and ended in August 2022. I interviewed with several companies and landed a role at the end of September. I started my job in mid October 2022. I have a background in sales, real estate and healthcare. Although not required, I came with a degree in Biology and tech skills in HTML, CSS and Javascript. I also had prior experience with Salesforce CRM. During the program (in my free time), I also learned the basics of APIs and cloud co...

    PreSales Academy - I GOT THE JOB!

    PreSales academy provided me with the knowledge and support I needed before and AFTER the program that helped me make the transition from teacher to Solutions Consultant. They provide a mentor, coach, personal advisor, and career advisor. With their support I got the job! Live sessions, live roleplays, and E-learning provided me everything I needed in just 8 weeks!

    June Cohort

    PreSales Academy is an amazing program.  I can't recommend it enough.  The live instruction and online learning modules are fantastic, but beyond that, the individual attention, coaching, and mentorship are what make PSA really stand out. I was so supported and encouraged every step of the way. I not only learned the skills needed to land and succeed in an SE role, but I built relationships with mentors, advisors, and peers that I will carry with me. The resources provided are substantia...

    Life Changing!

    This was hands down the best decision I made to help navigate a major career change. PSA followed through on all of their promises. They have a well developed curriculum that is a conglomerate of wisdom and best practices from around the PSC. They are constantly updating and refining materials. The staff is outstanding, and above all, will do anything to support the students. They bring in outstanding lecturers and guest speakers. The mentors and coaches are extremely well qualified to b...

    Solutions Consultant

    PreSales Academy was personally and professionally the best decision I made in my life. I landed an amazing job (Solutions Consultant) with an amazing company (Gainsight!!!) in less than 3 months upon completion. I came from a non-traditional background in construction (AEC sector), and by following the steps laid out by PSA I was able to break into tech industry. Don't let the part-time aspect of PSA be misleading. This academy will make you dig deep and encourage you to constantly be l...

    Sales Engineer

    If you are looking to break into Presales as a Sales Engineer then this program is for you. My background was in Customer Success and I tried to interview on my own for SE roles, but I was getting rejected after the demo stage. The program pairs you with a coach and a mentor. The coach is the one that you do each demo with and they give you feedback and grades for each one; the idea is that you get better with each live demo; they also act as a mentor while you are in the program ( and a...

    Great Experience

    Applied and joined the PreSales Academy based on a referral from a friend.  I am so happy that I did!  The instructors, the lessons, the coaching, and the training helped me land a position as an Associate Sales Engineer soon after graduation.  I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a career change.

    Landed a job within 1 month of graduating!

    I had a great overall experience with PreSales Academy and I highly recommend to anyone who is new to PreSales and ultimately landing a role in PreSales. I was part of the inaugural cohort of PSA, and it will only get better in the future. The instructor and the coaches are very helpful with job searching and interviewing. Can't wait to see what the future holds for PSA!
