From retail to tech sales for better work-life balance, Meet Nadja

tech sales for better work-life balance
  • November 30, 2022

Meet Nadja, she’s 33 years old. In her spare time, she likes to go on vacation where the sun shines, some of her favourite destinations are Spain, Greece, and Thailand.


Before Hyrise 

Nadja worked for 10 years in retail, and before joining Hyrise she was working at a fashion store. She really enjoyed her last job because she was in constant contact with her customers and that is something she’s passionate about. However, she knew that she didn’t want to work in retail her whole life.

“Retail is a nice job for students to make some extra money, but not for a full-time job. The days are super long and the salary isn’t the best. Every day, I got home at 10 and had little to no time to myself.”

“At my old job, I lacked a lot of growth opportunities because my highest aspiration was to become a store manager. And I did not want that to be my ultimate goal.”

At some point, she started to study marketing and economics to broaden her professional horizons. During one of her breaks, she bumped into one of our social media posts and her life took a radical change. 


Her Hyrise Experience

“I decided to apply and two hours later I received a call from the talent success team. In no time at all, I was creating my talent platform profile. It was a super quick and easy process.”

“Once my profile was live, I started to receive a lot of interview requests. I had 15 interviews in two weeks. I was super surprised by the number of interviews, I was not expecting so many so quickly.”

Nadja was able to nail all of her interviews and feel confident thanks to our workshops and the constant support received from the talent success team. Her talent success advisor helped her navigate all the interviews while working in her old job, which took a big weight off her shoulders. 

“I applied on the 27th of July and got hired by SiteMinder on the 30th of August as a Sales Executive. Without Hyrise I would not have been able to change my career in such a short time and in such an easy way.”

After Hyrise

She is super happy in her new position, the team and the work environment are super nice. Nevertheless, she still has a lot to learn, since she comes from a different industry, and has to work now with systems that she had never before. But she’s getting better every day and all of her efforts are paying off.

“My life has changed radically! Now I have the weekends to myself, and the fact that I have so much more time to do what I enjoy has meant a significant change for my personal balance.”

Tips for Hyrise

“If you want to land a job in tech sales, don’t do it alone, choose Hyrise. Never write a motivational letter again, and forget about the boring and long selection processes that don’t go anywhere. Hyrise is the future of job searching.”
