Zoomers: Transitioning from Marketing to Sales

By February 24, 2014 No Comments

Daxko looks for Zoomers. Zoomers are a breed of people that can zoom from one role to another with ease. I learned early on in my career at Daxko that being a Zoomer at a high-speed technology company is essential to growth.

Since joining the Daxko Nation back in August 2012, I’ve had four different positions. After I graduated college in the summer of 2012, I searched for jobs in Birmingham and Atlanta. When I interviewed at Daxko, I knew it was a unique and exciting company that I wanted to be a part of.

Initially, I was offered a part-time position as a Member Engagement Representative on the Engage Delivery Services team. I didn’t mind that it was part time because I knew that Daxko is committed to giving team members rewarding careers and opportunities to advance.  I was also just so happy to have a job at a fantastic company like Daxko.

Two short months later, I was given the opportunity to move onto the Marketing team as a Nonprofit Engagement Champion. With a degree in Mass Communication, I knew Marketing was a great fit for me. I still worked in a part-time capacity, but my hours were increased. I gained experience generating leads for the sales team.

In January 2013, I was offered a full-time position on the Marketing team as the Marketing Coordinator. I helped plan events and support event-campaigns through graphic design, writing, video-production, and building web pages. I took on projects with no prior experience and gained some valuable new skills. I learned what a well-oiled marketing machine looks like and how it functions. Being part of an all-star team was crucial in my professional development.

Ten months later, I transitioned to the Sales team. This was an opportunity to learn new skills and utilize my teacher and influencer strengths. Within the last three months on the team, I’ve learned how to manage and grow my business, and help connect the challenges of nonprofits to Daxko’s solutions. I didn’t originally picture myself in sales, but I love every minute of it. I’m learning from the best in the business, and I know this experience will take me far in my career.

With new opportunities around every corner, I am having the time of my life working at Daxko. I would encourage any Zoomer out there who desires an exciting, fast-paced career to join the Daxko Nation. You never know where you might end up!
