ROLE OVERVIEW AND IMPACT:
Are you looking for a fulfilling career empowering companies to connect with their customers in a whole new way? In this Business Development Associate New-Grad Program, you will join our elite sales team and do just that! You will learn how to evangelize Salesforce, the Customer Success Platform and World’s #1 CRM, by researching and identifying net-new business opportunities — you will have a direct impact in our revenue generation goals. This role is an exciting opportunity for you to begin developing your core sales skills and business acumen as you work alongside industry sales leaders by directly supporting an outbound sales team.
We hire driven individuals who thrive in a challenging and ambiguous environment, who know that they can succeed in a fast-paced, client-facing sales career, and are comfortable with achieving/exceeding metrics, key performance indicators (KPIs), and sales quotas.
The Business Development Associate (BDA) role serves as the entry-level role into a client-facing sales career at Salesforce and is designed to be your first look into how we sell Salesforce products. In this role, you will not be client-facing but will support a team of client-facing, outbound Business Development Representatives (BDR). You will simultaneously be trained in core sales skills to become a client-facing, inbound Sales Development Representative (SDR). Successful BDAs critically think and learn through coaching from their mentors, build upon, and improve their skills throughout their tenure in this program. After mastering the BDA role, you may be eligible to continue into the SDR role based upon your success in this program.
There are six core goals and responsibilities in this role to help train, equip, and prepare you for advancement:
Align with and directly support a team of BDRs in:
Lead generation/Prospecting - Conducting research on, modifying and identifying net-new prospective clients and accounts
Determining key decision makers within the leadership team of those accounts and creating new contacts in our CRM
Gathering other strategic insights using market data and industry intelligence to improve the quality of accounts
Develop foundational knowledge of Salesforce products and business acumen
Understand and apply the Salesforce value proposition in mock cold calls
Learn and utilize our selling methodologies in role playing exercises
Demonstrate ability to navigate challenging sales call scenarios and business cases
Learn inbound sales processes and prepare for evaluation to become an SDR
Must be within less than 1-year of having completed a Bachelor’s Degree or Advanced Degree from the start date of this role
Long-term interest in a client-facing sales career
Competitive spirit and the drive for results
Exemplary problem-solving skills and the resourceful ability to take initiative
Coachable and enjoys learning in a fast-paced sales environment
Superior organizational skills and attention to detail
Previous internship or full-time corporate sales experience
