    I worked at SV Academy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    SV Academy helped me to completely turn my life around. I was stuck in retail management for a long time and wanted to make the change into tech sales. I never would have been able to make that change without SV Academy. They taught me everything I needed to know in order to be a successful SDR and helped me through the entire interview process until I got a job! I am so grateful. Apply today!!

    Cons

    It definitely seems too good to be true, but it's not! It's real and truly life-changing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SV Academy.

    Interview

    I had two emails task to complete and two phone interviews. One with the owner/CEO to complete the screening process. Overall, the process was transparent, and I felt confident I knew what the next steps were.
