How to land an entry level sales interview with a tech/software company in the United States.
The basic sales skills you would learn in a sales internship to prove you're worth an interview.
Why you rarely hear back when you apply via career and company websites, and how to get a much higher response and interview rate.
What hiring managers are looking for in an ideal candidate, and how to give them exactly what they want.
Read the requirements carefully, please. I don't want to waste your time.


  • You MUST be a college graduate from the USA or another English-native speaking country. A native-level mastery of written and verbal English is NECESSARY.
  • You MUST be in a native-English speaking country (UK, USA, Australia, etc) because those tend to have the demand for these types of jobs and the highest salaries as well.

It can be hard to land an interview in the tech world. Especially if your resume isn't "relevant" by conventional means. If you have a low GPA, no sales internships, or heck, any sales experience, it can seem downright  impossible to get a call back after submitting 1947 resumes through job sites. That's why I created this course. 

In it, you'll learn basic sales skills commonly used at tech companies. Skills that would be taught to you in an internship, but never in a college class. You'll also learn how someone hiring for salespeople thinks and how to give it to them on a silver platter. I have a history of being a top performing salesperson and hiring was very important to me so I know exactly what hiring managers are looking for. 

You should be able to land an interview in 1-2 weeks if you watch all the videos and apply all the concepts and exercises.

This course will teach you:

  • Why sending in your resume is a terrible way to get an interview, and how to take a little known shortcut. 

  • Basic sales skills. Having these skills will get you a better chance of interviewing than Ivy League candidates with no experience.

  • How to frame your limited experience in a way that gets managers excited to give you an interview.

You'll be able to get an interview for an entry level sales position at a tech company after completion of this course. No experience necessary.

Who this course is for:

  • Smart and hard working people who want to take the first step towards earning six figures a year as salesmen. (I earned $300,000+ in 2016) 

  • People who are looking to switch professions/industries into the lucrative technology field. Success in previous roles a big plus but not necessary. Experience dealing with customers a plus but again, not necessary.

  • Recent graduates who have been involved with extracurricular activities. Clubs, meetups, sports teams, running a small side business, etc.

  • Non-tech salespeople looking to break in to tech.

Who this course is NOT for:

  • People who do not have a strong grasp of written and spoken English. Communication in sales is very important and it's out of my realm of expertise to teach it to you.

  • Recent graduates who literally just went to class, partied, and watched YouTube videos. You gotta give me something to work with on your resume, even if it's just a hobby or a organizing a meetup group.

  • People who have been unemployed for 1.5+ years. Resume gaps are hard for me to help with. This is workable if the gap was intentional, ie: kid, traveling, etc. but not if you've just been totally unemployable. 

  • Lazy people. There is homework involved in this course and you must do the work to succeed.

Who this course is for:

  • Someone who is hard working and driven, but might not have the most applicable experience or strong GPA.

I want to share how to get entry level sales jobs because sales has been great to me. The work life balance is great - I work on average 40 hours a week, which gives me time to spend on the ones I love and hobbies.

It also doesn't hurt that in 2016, I made just over $300,000. The money has given me the freedom to support my mom and dad while letting me travel the world with no worries. Moving forward, I see myself conservatively making $200,000/yr. I hope that I can start a couple of you on that path as well. 

Career highlights:
- I've closed enterprise companies like Apple, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Yahoo
- I've closed deals worth over $1,000,000
- At my last 2 large company sales jobs, I was ranked #1/10 and #3/18
