Landing.Jobs and Hyrise will offer 100.000€ in scholarships to launch your tech career

May 25, 2021

With unemployment figures hovering in the millions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are worried about one of the most devastating employment scenarios in recent history. 

To help combat unemployment, Landing.Jobs and Hyrise Academy have decided to join forces to give members of the community the chance to kickstart their career in the tech industry. Together, they will offer 100.000€ in scholarship to take the Hyrise course and land a job as a business development and sales professional in tech.

Both companies are playing a key role in shaping the future of work in their communities through education and job placement. Their objective has always been to support and empower digital talent based on the real needs of companies and the market, regardless of the person’s nationality, location or job situation.

With more than 50.000 open job vacancies for junior roles in Europe alone, tech business development and sales roles are an incredible opportunity for anyone looking for a new employment opportunity.

  • They’re fun and fulfilling roles. The goal of a sales team is of course to generate new customers. But the approach to doing this is not by being pushy, it's by trying to help prospective customers solve problems. The role is much closer to a consultant than to a traditional sales role.
  • They're open to everyone. There is no need for a specific degree or background - anyone with the right mindset can excel at sales. Recent graduates, hospitality professionals, and technical profiles are especially well suited to these roles.
  • They're one of the most lucrative careers in tech. Tech sales roles offer a great base salary and great bonus opportunities. 
  • There's huge room for growth. Career opportunities for top performers are endless, with short promotional timeframes.
Most people think you need to learn how to code to work in the tech industry, when in fact almost 50% of the jobs out there are non-technical.

Tech business development & sales offers an incredible career path available to anyone with the right mindset. They're fun jobs, with huge room for growth and you don't need a degree or sales experience to begin.

It's the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to start a new career.

- Alvaro Rojas, Cofounder @ Hyrise Academy

For a chance to win the scholarships, applicants will have to complete a quick application form through the website. 

Candidates will be able to apply from the 26th of May until the 9th of June. The selection process will then include an online assessment and a personal interview, and it's open to anyone - no previous sales experience is necessary. Everyone is encouraged to apply.

All we ask is for people to inform themselves and read up on the tech sales career path before applying. There’s plenty of resources in our blog. We will select people based on their online assessment score, but also on the personal motivation they show in the interview.

Hyrise Academy is recognized as one of the top tech sales bootcamps in Europe by Coursereport. The course is fully online, takes 6 weeks to complete, and offers individual coaching by industry experts. If students don’t land a job at the end of the program, tuition is free. Hyrise's hiring partners include Hubspot, Personio, Pleo, Hubspot and many more.
