Management Trainee: Sales Track
Management Trainee: Sales Track
Become a rebel and fight for affordable education!
At Zerocopy, it’s all about education. So we focus a lot on training and educating our own teams. That’s why we decided to set up our Management Traineeship: Sales Track. An intensive 18 month program that will turn you from graduate into business professional.
We know the sales drill and we'll teach you how it works! In no time, you'll be in touch with your own bunch of partners willing to support our mission. You’ll learn everything about sales, play a crucial role in the management and growth of the company, learn a lot about entrepreneurship and peer coaching.
Through our Management Traineeship, you'll kick-start your career, you’ll learn skills that will support you throughout your whole career and you’ll be ready to move-up within Zerocopy, or outside of Zerocopy!
Are you a rebel at heart? Do you want to fight for more affordable education? Do you have an entrepreneurial mindset? Then get in touch!
The mission of a Sales Trainee
