Are You Passionate About a Career in Sales?


This long-term career is with Keyence, a $50 Billion company who is a global leader in industrial automation - think high-tech robotic equipment that helps business maximize their efficiency (basically why we can shop in our pajamas from the couch!


For 8 years straight, Forbes has listed them among “The World's 100 Most Innovative Companies" and Boston Consulting ranks them as one of the 50 “2018 Value Creators" in the world. The base salary, is $51k** with a target first year bonus of $32k, total 2nd year total compensation target of $100k+. 


**the base is automatically adjusted upward in areas with a higher cost of labor (ex: Boston, California, New Jersey, etc.)**


This is a true entry-level position, no experience is required but your passion for sales rooted in a competitive nature, strong work ethic, and a results oriented mindset combined with a great personality (have you heard the maxim, “people buy from people they like”?!), is! 


After an intensive training program that includes classroom training (paid, 4-8 weeks in Chicago (upcoming dates: 01/2019 & 06/2019)), followed by a minimum mentorship/job shadowing period, you will run your territory within a process oriented & structured environment where coaching is prioritized. This is not a “sink or swim” company; Keyence is invested in your success right from the beginning because they are hiring for careers, not jobs - they only promote from within so when you get an offer from Keyence it’s because they see you not only performing well in the role but moving up and becoming a leader. 


If you haven’t applied in the last 12 months and this sounds interesting to you, let’s schedule a phone call so I can hear more about you, your goals, what it is you are looking for, and talk about the process, or if you’d like to apply first (PLEASE SEE BELOW), then go ahead and do that and let me know and we’ll get you scheduled for a call. 


Either way, we are here to help guide you through this entire process, we’re here for you as much as you want in order to help you be able to present your best self!
