Delivered by The Revenue U and in collaboration with TalentMinded, the Women in Tech Sales Career Fest has been designed for women who want to pivot into tech sales or advance their career in the field. It aims to increase the percentage of women in tech sales with the help of a tech sales bootcamp training program.
As part of the event, employers get to engage and hire more women in tech sales in two ways – bootcamp partnership and career fest.
The employer partnership package gives employers an access to join the fest’s speed interviewing event with graduates as well as have the bootcamp cohort to host a training day in their office. The cohort comprises of 25 students who have been chosen to complete a 4-day bootcamp training program to learn about tech sales and the tech software sales playbook. The employer, on the other hand, gets to spend time with students, share insights into their sales organization and organizational culture, thereby promoting their employer brand and value proposition.
They also get to showcase their company as well as career opportunities as exhibitors at the fest and meet with female candidates seeking career opportunities in tech sales.
Past employer partners include Cisco, Uber Eats, Blue J Legal, PagerDuty, Monster, Softchoice, PointClickCare, Swift Medical, , Loopio, Tulip Retail, and many more.
