Join Check Point, see the world
One million international college students study in the United States in any given academic year.
Marina Parrado, a Barcelona-based sales engineer at Check Point Software Technologies, was one of those million when she spent a semester in University of Kansas (sic), followed by a semester in Italy.
When asked about her favorite international experience – where she gained the most insight, maturity, and meaningful exposure to other cultures – she didn’t mention any university program.
“Check Point’s Associate program, no doubt. Everyone on the program was motivated, thoughtful, and capable. We all understood that it was a cooperative endeavor, and I ended up making friends from nearly every corner of the world.”
As part of their new-hire training, Check Point brings together nearly sixty new sales and sales engineering employees and places them in an apartment building nearby the Tel Aviv, Israel headquarters. Every week in the program, a different veteran sales manager flies in from a global office to help lead the training sessions, exposing the trainees to different parts of the company as they sit through lectures, workshops, and classes.
“In my study-abroad programs, class was seen as an obstacle in the way of travel. People would show up late or miss class – and if they didn’t, they’d be on their phones the entire lecture.” Marina explains. But with the associate program, “we were there for our careers. We were focused during the week, actively working toward a common goal, never taking our free time for granted.
Immersion in Israel
With so much on their plates during the weekdays, by the time Thursday evening rolled around – Israelis have Fridays and Saturdays off, unlike most countries -- the associates were ready to explore Tel Aviv, guided by the local wisdom of their Israeli counterparts.
“The first day of our training sessions, I sat nearby two Israeli new sales hires. We immediately became friends, and thanks to them, we never went to a bad restaurant or bar out on town.” added Brian Bausch, a sales associate from Chicago.
Touching upon a powerful component of the Check Point experience, Brian explains that the biggest lessons he learned were outside of the formal training sessions. The international cohort of associates weren’t just in Tel Aviv as visitors – they were there as colleagues and coworkers, embedded into the local economy and culture.
“The first day, everyone was pretty taken aback by the Israelis’ directness,” Brian recounts. “It’s like jumping in cold water. Once you get used to it, the honesty is really, really refreshing, especially in a work setting.”
A Global Experience
With all the career development and local cultural immersion going on, the participants had a lot of new information to process, every day. When they sat together at the end of a long day and decompressed, something interesting happened. Despite meeting and listening to experienced and qualified cyber security professionals, the associates learned the most from each other.
“As my first job out of college, it was my first time living outside of Asia. It was a culture shock, in a positive way,” said Penny Ting, a sales associate from Hong Kong. “I interacted with so many different styles and personalities across different regions. Understanding them helped me grow as a salesperson.”
Eugene Tcheby, a sales engineer from Eastern Canada, agreed with Penny.
“Instead of reading a book or watching a documentary, I learned about global traditions, mentalities, and histories by talking with my new friends. Every day, I heard ten different languages spoken in the hallways. It was a rich and unforgettable experience.” Eugene said. “European, Asian, South-American, Israeli, African… I now have knowledgeable local friends in all those places, friends that double as colleagues. They’re my global, professional support system.”

Great technology, company trying to re-invent itself and capture more market share.
Occasional cross-cultural challenges like any global company. Less than most.
Advice to Management
Keep innovating and continue to enable the sales force to be successful.
I applied online. I interviewed at Check Point Software Technologies.
The recruiter reached out to me for a phone screen by calling at 7:30 AM to set up a time. However, she quickly got into salary and other details that I don't believe are appropriate for a first screen. After she found out I don't have the experience she was looking for, which was very clear from my resume so I don't know why she wasted my time, she offered to let me know of a more entry-level position should it become available.
