Skills Tech Sales

Don’t think tech sales is for you? You could be wrong.

B2B tech sales isn’t about building complicated technology from the ground up. It’s about making connections between people, and the products and services they need. Succeeding in tech sales these days requires people who have real human skills. Research shows that people with great so-called “soft-skills” such as listening, team-building, empathy, and a focus on consensus-driven outcomes are the kind of people building the future right now in B2B sales. 

Sound familiar? It should, because these are the kind of skills you’ll find in the hospitality industry, and in other customer-facing occupations. From servers and bartenders, to receptionists and customer support workers, B2B tech sales is attracting and rewarding people who want to build careers that offer growth and leadership opportunities. 

SalesCamp B2B & Tech sales training

SalesCamp delivers both opportunity and professional career skills development by helping you build skills for in-demand B2B tech sales jobs. 

SalesCamp’s core experience begins with six days of intensive, online synchronous classes from 9 am to 5 pm. Sessions include lectures, learning laboratories, sales challenges, industry panels, and even networking opportunities with business partners ready to hire. SalesCamp is employment training with a difference. 

The SalesCamp Experience goes above and beyond a simple job training program, with three weeks of career skills training and job search coaching that includes two career-focused seminars per week, as well as weekly check-ins with Palette Staff and your accountability partners. It’s a cohort-driven experience that centers on a community of support that goes beyond beyond SalesCamp into a thriving alumni network.
