The Military community is known for its patriotism. But, what about veterans taking on an active and assertive role in capitalism? Most service members transition from their military careers into private-sector mission support type roles – i.e. project management, operations leadership, business administration, etc. And now, everyone is sprinting towards gaining credentials to work in fields such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Software Engineering. With technological advancements continuing to redefine the labor market and propel people into technical roles, the big question remains: who’s going to sell all of these innovative tech solutions?
Whoever takes on the challenge of succeeding in a high-tech sales role stands to benefit handsomely, and Tech Qualled is betting on military veterans to attack such opportunities with fervor.
In 2014, American Dream U set out to provide a program providing our military, veterans, & families the connections to the world’s best coaches. Today, ADU is proud to partner with Tech Qualled in order to bridge the gap for veterans to jump into tech sales at an entry point instead of an entry-level role.
What does a career in technology sales look like? IT companies all over the world are counting on their field sales team to manage clients, provide enterprise-level business solutions, and hunt for new business opportunities. While the perception many veterans have on sales is a risky 100% commission role, many Account Executives have base salaries in the six figures after 3-5 years of experience.
Why should veterans accept this next challenge in their careers? Nick Breedlove, Co-Founder of Tech Qualled states: “A first-generation college grad, immigrant, or servicemember is no longer limited by a glass ceiling. Instead, he or she can truly break into a new tax bracket, create new opportunities, and achieve goals otherwise off-limits without certain privileges…” Tech Qualled’s mission heavily focuses on empowering transitioning military veterans with economic mobility. This is the approach that ties Tech Qualled’s program into a vision shared by American Dream U, where their passion is guiding veterans and spouses on a highly rewarding life journey after the military.
