GET IN ON SOMETHING DIFFERENT
When you visit Workbridge Associates, you’ll see a lot of energetic, ambitious, social people working together to achieve something extraordinary. It’s fast-paced and it seems like a million things are happening at once. NEVER boring; Amazing things happening at ALL TIMES.
Everyone at Workbridge (all the way up to the CEO) started their career here by reading an ad just like this one. We all started as entry-level trainees, yes even our CEO. We train our people very well, encourage them to excel, and reward their success aggressively. We’re led by the people who show themselves to be the best at their job, regardless of age or seniority. Not many companies offer the same early opportunity to build a business as we do, but that’s our secret sauce. This is an opportunity to learn how to run your own $2 million dollar business within 2-3 years. At Workbridge Associates we celebrate success, and we work crazy hard to make everybody here as successful as possible. We have a work hard, play hard mentality.
Now to be fair, a job at Workbridge isn’t for everybody, but for the right person, working here is a perfect way to kick off an extraordinarily successful business career. This role interfaces with senior level executives within major corporations, soliciting and engaging new accounts, strategic planning to develop an understanding of your local marketplace, account management, relationship building and contract negotiation. It’s an inside sales position, but will also involve a significant amount of face time with candidates, as well as on and off site meetings with client companies, so it is an outside sales position as well. Don't worry, you'll get taught how to do all this, but you have to feel comfortable with getting uncomfortable. You will have the opportunity to develop a foundation in sales that will serve you well for the rest of your working life.
