Excited to start his sales career, Spencer Alexander was looking for a sales role where he would enjoy continuous learning as well as high growth.
He found Ideal, created an account, and was matched to an Account Manager position at CDW that fulfills both his sales career ambitions. Read our interview with Spencer below.
Why did you choose to sign up with Ideal?
I was looking at job search sites after I graduated and I came across Ideal. I was using LinkedIn and there are a lot of job postings that weren’t a good fit for what I was looking for. I liked how Ideal focused on sales jobs that I was interested in specifically.
What was your experience with Ideal’s sign up process?
I was worried that I had to import everything from my resume and duplicate the information like in a typical job application so I was relieved that wasn’t the case with Ideal. The digital application was easy and I thought the assessment questionnaire was interesting.
How soon from when you signed up did you start your sales job that Ideal matched you to?
It was pretty quick from when I signed up. My first interview was in late Nov and I got hired in January.
What do you like about the job that you got hired with Ideal?
I like that my sales job is in a continuously learning environment in a growing field.
Based on your experience, would you recommend Ideal to a friend?
Yes, I would!
How would you describe Ideal in one sentence?
A great resource to find a sales career.
Is there anything else you’d like to say about your experience with Ideal?
I liked how Ideal’s technology let me do everything online during my job search.
That made it easy to keep track of everything I needed to do in terms of the next steps.
Having said that, my Talent Scout definitely improved the candidate experience and made it that much better: it was really nice having someone knowledgeable and supportive to discuss the job with in more detail.
Thanks for sharing your sales job success story, Spencer!
