    SDR Ready!

    SV Academy was the perfect place for a non-traditional tech employee like myself to begin a transition. Through their coursework, I was able to see how my communication skills translate to value in direct tech sales! I was also immersed in the use of tech tools that SDRs employ and I now have real internship experience in the role as well. I recommend SV Academy to anyone looking to make a career transition into tech despite feeling they might lack relevant experience.

    SVA review by Diego Nilsen

    This program has altered the course of my life. I now have a career thanks to the step-by-step program offered by SVA. I was given tools to apply, interview, and work in all kinds of tech companies. I felt supported the whole way, and even though the cost isn't cheap, it is flexible to pay off, and I appreciate the flexibility on when you can start paying and how you can pay it off. I also enjoy the feeling of support knowing I am matched with a mentor and a coach during the start of my ...

    At First I thought it was a SCAM!

    At first I thought it was a scam, just never thought an institute would provide all that it claimed in their ads. But I read more reviews and then met an Alumni that was doing VERY well with a job she got after attending SV and I told myself " What would I lose if I try?" and I did. AND it is to my surprise from day one I was impressed by the quality of the program and the reassurance to all of us as students. Wait, you said we do not have to pay anything until we graduate and land a job...

    WORTH IT

    My time in the Customer Success program at SV Academy was very fast-paced and at times completely overwhelming. But I worked through my pain points and found a true support system and reaffirmed the fact that 'I CAN DO HARD THINGS!' The course is empowering. They help give you the tools to build your network it would take years to connect on your own and refine your image to market it to the tech industry to put your best foot forward. I have met some truly amazing people through this an...

    SV Academy Grad

    I recently graduated from the Customer Success Fellowship with SV Academy! My overall experience was amazing. I met so many great people during this time and learned a wealth of knowledge. Transitioning into a new career can be daunting, but I had tremendous support from SV, family, and friends. The journey was well worth it! P.S. If you're lucky enough to have Marie Cordova as your program manager, just know you're in good hands!

    My SV Academy Journey!

    My experience at SV Academy was transformational in a way that I didn’t see coming. Even though I have worked in customer-facing roles all my life, the different exercises and interactions I encountered gave me deeper insights and a better understanding of how to navigate my career path in Customer Success and conduct myself professionally overall. My entire mindset has been upgraded because of the quality of instructions, mentorship, and exposure to a simulated work environment that mir...

    Glad I went for it

    As someone with no sales experience looking to go into sales, I found SV Academy to be just the right fit to introduce me to the field. With an internship with a tech company and real-world practice, the courses, and the video classes come together in a way that makes me way less scared to pursue this career. There were courses on interviewing as well, with ideas that were new to me that could potentially hurt an opportunity if I hadn't learned them here. A course is completely devoted t...

    Great Experience

    If you are looking to break into tech, SV Academy is the place to go. I just completed the Customer Success Fellowship. It was challenging but very informative and rewarding. I feel I am ready for the field. You receive support from anyone in SV and also meet great people who are learning along with you.

    My experience with SV Academy was good overall. You learn a lot about the program. The people I met were very intelligent and professional. There are some challenging assignments but I enjoyed doing them. It is a great program for anyone who may have experience in the tech world. If you are not experienced in tech, you may struggle with finding employment. you must shine with other experiences to win over the competition.

    SDR

    SV Academy was a great experience. I learned many skills that prepared me for going into tech sales. There was a lot of information to retain. A part of the training is mindfulness and I believe that was one of the most important things that I learned. SV is very helpful and supportive during the interviewing process. I was given a mentor and I will say that was such a blessing. He always showed up with positive energy and great information to share. After three months of searching, I ha...

    SDR / tech stack/ confidence building/ personal Training for todays tech market

    A great option to take out of the others because they teach you what you need to know in union with what's going on in today's tech jobs and help you build confidence, working knowledge, and interview preparedness for a role in Tech Sales. Leaving SV isn't really leaving, as you end up with a large community of supporters and that is priceless.
