Praxis has been growing steadily. As we place more and more Participants in growing businesses, success stories have been popping up more consistently than ever.
We regularly place Participants in marketing, sales, operations, and generalist roles throughout the country. During their apprenticeship, they learn what it’s like to jump into a fast-paced startup environment. They don’t need experience or hard skills unless they go into a really technical marketing or coding type of role. All they need is a strong and relentless desire to try things and improve.
Participant: Brandon Stuvick
Business Partner: Vital Interaction (Austin, TX)
Role: Sales Development Rep
“Sales? Bring it on.”
That’s what Brandon said to me when we met for the first time during his placement process. He has always loved building relationships, and after running clubs in school he came into Praxis wanting to hone his ability to sell to people.
Brandon will be working with Vital Interaction in Austin, Texas learning to bring in quality leads, navigate his way to decision-makers, and quickly inspire trust in customers who don’t know anything about him or the company yet.
Participant: John Brandt
Business Partner: Design Pickle (Scottsdale, AZ)
Role: Marketing Apprentice
John came into Praxis hungry for sales and marketing experience. He took things to the next level by making an ebook during his interviewing process. The ebook was a way to show his interviewer that he was ready to create value on his own accord.
It worked. John will be working closely with the CEO of Design Pickle as a marketing apprentice. He wrote an article on Medium about his experience interviewing through the placement process.
Participant: Evan White
Business Partner: GlockStore (San Diego, CA)
Role: Sales Representative
Evan has experience in sales and was looking to take his ability to the next level with Praxis. He interviewed with multiple companies and had two offers on the table before choosing GlockStore.
He will be managing inbound and outbound sales and also building a sales process that he can teach future hires as the company grows.
As always, feel free to check out last month’s placement update. See you next month for another round of new placements.
