Turning tech-ed(ucation) on its head!
As the days grow ever longer and the summer sun sets higher in the sky, here at Dux we’re super excited to let you in on a (not so) little secret! There’s an organisation out there turning tech-ed(ucation) on its head!
Have you heard of the Hyrise Academy? If you want to dive into the world of tech sales, then you really should have! They are an amazing, forward thinking company (much like ourselves), turning the world of tech sales and education (edtech) upside down!
“How’s that?” I hear you cry.
Well, at Hyrise, instead of asking you to pay for your education and then find yourself a job, they offer a 6 to 12-week training programme put together by industry experts AND, if you can’t land yourself that dream tech sales role within 6 months of completing the programme, then your tuition is free!
That’s how much they believe in their training academy and the expertise they provide.
Here at Dux, we think this model is so awesome that we wanted to help get the word out.
So, what’s this got to do with Dux?
At Dux, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of lead generation - and let’s face it, it’s at the core of everything we do. LinkedIn is an amazing platform, helping its users to create connections, build and maintain relationships, influence their networks and generate leads to keep their sales funnels full.
With over 70,000 customers now growing their businesses with our LinkedIn automation tool, we are reaching more user communities than ever before, and this is something you know we enjoy shouting about!
As a Dux customer, Hyrise is not only using our lead generation solution to reach out to likely edtech candidates, it’s also the tool of choice for building and retaining their own relationships with tech brands looking to recruit the best in tech sales talent.
It’s thanks to these strong partnerships, that the Hyrise curriculum is being constantly updated to reflect industry needs, meaning, not only are candidates selected and trained by the best in the industry; ‘they onboard faster, perform better, and stay longer’ and this is clearly a winning formula for any business.
.. and why does this help tech sales candidates?
It comes as no surprise to us that Hyrise has identified the Dux lead gen tool as being one of their ‘go-to’ components within their tech training toolkit; and hey – the customer is always right, right??
Clearly this creates a huge ‘high five’ from us, not just because it acknowledges Dux as such an integral part of the winning formula, but because for us, it’s such an exciting way for Dux to be able to support the industry and invest in the future of tech sales professionals – yay us!
So how does the training work?
Hyrise believes that ‘a new education system that enables people to lead better careers and lives in the digital economy’is ‘based on 3 pillars’:
1. Making education accessible, understanding that ‘talent is everywhere, opportunity is not’.
2. Personalizing education to each individual, acknowledging that ‘different minds learn at different paces and in different ways’.
3. Designing education with employability at the forefront – ‘Education should deliver ROI’.
‘As part of this approach, it’s an absolute ‘no-brainer’ for us to push Dux’s lead generation tool, as one of our tricks in the tech toolbox! It provides us with the perfect balance between quality and speed – the results are just spot on’ comments Alvaro Rojas, Co-Founder of Hyrise.
So, don’t take our word for it – visit www.hyrise.com to see how it works, for yourself. ‘We couldn’t be more delighted about partnering with such a dynamic and innovative organisation’, says Will Van der Sanden, Founder of Dux-Soup,‘there’s simply no better way for our business to support the industry and the next generation of tech sales professionals.’
So, for Dux sake get applying!! Your tech career awaits you!
