Meet Julien! Julien was a self-employed carpenter that decided to give his career a 180º shift and enter the tech sales world. Find out how and why he did it. 

Before Hyrise

Julien was a self-employed carpenter. He liked his job, yet, he was not fulfilled because he slowly got tired of the construction industry, mainly because it is a very old-school-minded industry. He knew he wanted to work in an industry that had futuristic and had a modern mindset.

“I wanted to try something new. I needed a change of scenery. Because I knew I could not reach my ambitions by staying as a self-employed carpenter.”

Julian knew he needed a change but did not know what direction to take. So he started to do some research to see what career options he had. During this process, he came across the sales industry, he thought this would be a good option for him. Then he stumbled upon one of our ads and decide to look into the tech sales industry.

“Once I found what Tech Sales was and how Hyrise could help me, I knew this was the way to go. I apply, and it was the best decision I could have ever made.”

His Hyrise experience

He loved our concept and how easy and fast the job-hunting process was. It took him less than 4 weeks from the moment he applied until he signed the contract.

“After my profile was live on the talent platform, it took about 5 days for me to start receiving my first interview requests. Shortly after I received a great job offer from Tradelink, which I happily accepted.” 

Our workshops and the crash courses gave him the confidence and knowledge he needed to start his tech sales journey.

“With Hyrise's preparation, I felt ready to take over the tech sales world.” 

To have someone he could reach out to every time he had a concern and that truly cared about him finding the best possible job, was something he truly valued and appreciated. Julien never felt alone, and that’s all he needed, to be his best self and have someone guiding him on the way to starting his new career. 

“I really like Hyrise’s innovative idea of only focusing on people’s soft skills and mindset, ensuring that these people will truly succeed in tech sales. Hyrise gives the opportunity to people, like me that come from a totally different industry, to start a rewarding career without any previous industry-specific experience.”

“Hyrise helped me understand more about myself. It helped me achieve my goals in a much more effective way. I tried many other methods but none of them got me this far.”

After Hyrise

Now after a month of working as an SDR Tradelink, he’s super happy. 

“I am fascinated by the beauty of sales. I wake up every day and challenge myself to be better at my job. Trying to understand and help people is something that fulfills me."

“Tradelink is all I was expecting. Getting to know the team before starting to work remotely was super important. And the company organized everything, and it turned out great!”

Tips for future Hyrisers 

“Just do it. Be brave. Accept the fact that you can do anything you set your mind to.”

“Don’t let yourself down because of your resume, just don’t look at it. Hyrise will grab you by the arm and will walk with you, ensuring you get where you want to be. And that’s all you need, someone that guides and helps you.”
