Round table discussions at Tech Sales Apprenticeship


The best technology companies can’t scale without sales.

Despite market demand for technology sales professionals, there’s little technology sales training in the marketplace or with Canadian universities. We’re out to change that.

Communitech and the Lazaridis Institute are working together to address the shortage of tech sales talent by launching a multi-week intense tech sales training program.

Do you possess an energetic and outgoing personality? Are you looking for a career in tech sales? If you’re driven, self-motivated, possess strong communication skills, thrive in a competitive, goal-oriented environment and are eager to take on a new challenge, we want you.

Tech Sales Apprenticeship is an industry-vetted “made in Waterloo Region” tech sales program. Under the direction of experienced sales professionals, you’ll participate in a three-week intense learning program. With 10 days in experiential sessions at the Communitech Hub, smack dab in the Innovation district, you’ll learn from instructors who know how to sell. And you’ll have five days onsite with five of the fastest growing tech companies in the Waterloo Region.

The third cohort begins in January 2018. Attend a free info session on November 28th from 5:30 – 7:00 PM at Laurier’s Career Development Centre, and hear how the program has impacted those that have participated already. Be sure to attend this info session to learn all about the Tech Sales Apprenticeship program before the application deadline.
