My most recent experience
Sales Executive (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – November 5, 2013
Cvent is a great company for many people, and there is a reason they mostly hire from within. Coming into that company with experience is a much different ballgame. My actual day was something that was not described during my interview process. The day to day operations, the management, and requirements were something entirely different than what I had been told before coming in.
It was a very young company, with high energy. It was a cold calling business. They hammer out calls all day long, and on a typical day, the average person would make roughly 70 calls.
The hardest part of the job was finding my place in the company. I learned how to work with much younger professionals, and how to manage individuals right out of college.
Ambitious young individuals
No training or ramp up for individuals coming in with experiencce
