San Diego, CA, United States, 2010/08/19 - Recent college graduates prepare to enter the job market through SPEED, a six-week all-expenses paid sales training program hosted by SkillStorm, a national technical consulting and outsourcing firm.
SkillStorm today announced the fall launch of the company’s sales training program — the SkillStorm Program for Extreme Educational Development, also known as SPEED. After two successful training classes held earlier this year, SPEED returns for a new session beginning on August 16th in San Diego, California. SPEED is a highly competitive training program where ten candidates compete for Technical Recruiter positions with SkillStorm. Trainees that successfully complete the intense training program are offered full-time positions in one of five SkillStorm offices nationwide.
The timing of this SPEED class presents a perfect employment opportunity for summer college graduates entering an aggressive job market. Trainees experience a competitive learning environment that combines lecture-style sessions with rigorous, hands-on field experience in recruiter and sales training. The trainees enjoy a salary, full accommodations and opportunities to win several prizes, including cash bonuses, throughout the duration of the six-week course.
“The past two SPEED training classes have been such a great success for both SkillStorm and the graduates of the program, who have excelled as Technical Recruiters. We see this training program as an investment in the future of our company – by bringing in the best of the best, we put SkillStorm on the right track towards continued success. This program allows us to hire competitive, sales-minded individuals with an extreme drive to succeed and that’s exactly what we look for in a SkillStorm recruiter,” said Vince Virga, CEO of SkillStorm.
Hailing from schools including Kansas State University, Flagler College, San Diego State University, Alabama A&M University and Clemson University, this semester’s SPEED participants will be given several fun and interactive opportunities to connect with an online audience who can follow their progress throughout the course of the program; for example, trainees record their thoughts and experiences during the course via video testimonials posted on the SPEED YouTube Channel. Participants also share day-to-day updates about their progress on the SPEED blog.
“One of the things that really intrigued me about SPEED was the fact that SkillStorm covered all of our expenses — the flight to San Diego, hotel, all of our meals, everything. As a recent college graduate, supporting myself during the training course would’ve been very difficult. SkillStorm really stood out from other options because of this,” said SPEED summer graduate, Nikki Reusch, now a full-time Technical Recruiter with SkillStorm.
The spring SPEED training class is scheduled to begin on February 21, 2011 in San Diego, California and is open to applicants now. Interested applicants should complete the free SPEED Personality Assessment on the SPEED webpage to be considered for the program.
