Our community includes millions of students, recent graduates, and alumni from top business schools, law schools, and universities around the world. We take pride connecting our community of candidates with recruiters from top companies across industries. Come join our fast growing organization!

We are growing quickly here at 12twenty and it's our priority to hire A+ players to join us on our mission of rapid expansion and world domination! We are looking for a highly-motivated Sales Development Rep to work hand-in-hand with leadership to grow our customer base in the University market. Through outbound emails and calls, your sole responsibility will be to prospect, generate leads, book discovery calls and demonstrations on behalf of the Sales Team. 

Business development is not a job for everyone...if you hate cold calling, drafting engaging emails, and just generally speaking with humans, this isn't the role for you. 😬 We are looking for self-starters who are tenacious, motivated, organized and professional, excited to build their career in sales! You'll be interacting with individuals ranging from Administrators to Deans and University Provosts, so the role requires a blend of charm and sophistication, with excellent written and phone communication skills. 

We are happy to admit that here at 12twenty, we have a strict "no jerks" policy. You will be surrounded with like-minded, passionate, and intelligent team members that are dedicated to the mission and everyone that is a part of it. We believe in being in the trenches together and having each others' backs. Let's build and succeed together.
