Definitely. And that’s exactly what Satellite is here to do. Many of the learners who come through our program have little to no sales experience. They do, however, have transferable skills and character traits that tend to serve them well in the world of sales.

Sales training bootcamps typically cost between $7k–$30k. A steep price to pay for mostly pre-recorded videos. The fees are typically in the form of an upfront tuition and/or an income share agreement (ISA). The Satellite Career Accelerator program is completely tuition-free for all learners. Satellite will never take a fixed percentage of your future earnings.
Sales development representative, business development representatives, and other entry-level sales and go-to-market roles continue to be some of the highest demand jobs. It’s common for a single SDR or BDR job posting to receive hundreds of applicants, which makes it difficult for job seekers to stand out and challenging for hiring managers to find the best talent. SDR and BDR applicants can increase their chances of standing out and landing a job by completing sales training programs. Satellite Certified Talent end the training program with work samples that demonstrate their sales skills as well as recommendations from coaches and trainers. An added benefit to the Satellite Career Accelerator is the opportunity to be showcased to hiring companies via your own profile in the Satellite Talent Marketplace.
While we cannot guarantee that every learner who completes our program will land a job, we’ve consistently seen that job seekers who can easily showcase and demonstrate relevant skills are hired more quickly. Satellite Hiring Partners are interested in adding entry-level sales professionals to their team. Our hiring partners are utilizing the Satellite Talent Marketplace to browse profiles of Satellite Certified Talent and requesting to set up interviews.
