To achieve success, you’ll create your territory’s roadmap to sustainable growth, resolve business challenges, and work with a diverse set of colleagues from across the world that will result in a beautiful customer experience.
Over the course of two years, you’ll master EF’s consultative approach to sales, establish a global professional network, and gain exposure to diverse aspects of the business.
- Day one: Join your cohort for a comprehensive, month-long onboarding in the ET Incubator to learn how the business works.
- Your first year: You’ll Launch, developing your skills as a strategic seller and a savvy entrepreneur. As you refine your sales pitch and begin growing your network, your support system will include your sales trainer, your peer advisor, and your sales director, who will serve as your manager and mentor.
- Your second year: Year two is your chance to Accelerate, honing your skills and exploring your passions. You’ll capitalize on your momentum from year one and continue growing your business. You’ll be called to join various working groups within the company, where your insights from the front lines will help drive innovation and creative solutions to business challenges.
- Beyond: After completion of the program, Soar. In year three and beyond, you’ll focus on creating your EF legacy.
