"Be prepared to receive another family as well as an education."
I was accepted into multiple different boot camps which I then toured//observed classes. I choose GX Academy because I felt I entered a family vs a business trying to churn money, which has stayed true even after my completion of the program. During my... Read More course work at GX Academy, I was supported in all ways possible even when I completed the Growth Marketing program and wanted to obtain a job doing customer success. The continuous support was very helpful considering I just had made a cross-country move from Atlanta to San Francisco to make my career change.
I really enjoyed the real-life application of my education when I was paired with my internship at Abl Schools. This gave me the experience I need to properly dive into my new career at an EdTech start-up.
I would recommend GX Academy to everyone trying to further their education; It is a much faster and a better use of funds than going back to receive a traditional degree. I had already obtained a bachelor degree in chemistry and a master degree in secondary education//chemistry, therefore I didn't want to go back and obtain another traditional degree. This was perfect for me!
I'm a fresh graduate from Manila that recently moved to the Bay Area. Coming here, I knew I wanted to work in the tech industry. I had a dream but I didn't have a concrete strategy to achieve it. And so, I took the step towards enrolling in GrowthX Academy.... Read More It was single-handedly the best decision I made then because now I'm living my dream.
Prior to joining GrowthX, I was exposed to the possibility of joining other bootcamps. During the process of choosing, I had encounters with a lot of bootcamps that were too profit-oriented and unprofessional. I couldn't see myself in that sort of "boot camp". Which is a huge reason why I decided to choose GrowthX over the rest. Aside from its superb curriculum, the sense of community in the academy is unlike any other. From the first phone calls I had with them to the lectures in class, you can really feel that these people really cared about your career and your personal growth. In two words, the unique experience you can have in GrowthX would be the "collaborative culture".
I enrolled under the sales division of GrowthX and my mentor was Sean Sheppard. He and the rest of the team at GrowthX have been nothing but phenomenal as instructors, as mentors, as friends, and everything in between. They really see the potential in you and really help push you to unlock that potential. The curriculum is fantastic with the perfect mix of theoretical and practical lessons to help train you to excel in your desired field.
Looking back now, the three months I spent learning from everyone around me in GrowthX flew by so fast, but I can honestly say that I feel very prepared and confident that I will be able to excel in my career. And one of the best things about joining GrowthX is that even when you finish the program, the sense of community is so strong, that you'd want to come back and visit to help the newer students or even just have a chat with the staff about how happy you are in your new career.
I highly recommend joining the GrowthX community if you want to take control of your career!
GrowthX Academy is the total package. They provided me with great curated content in the course plan, access to an amazing network of tech sales mentors, hands-on experience working in a real startup, and assisted me with getting a job. In fact, I already... Read More had two job offers before I finished (and I hadn’t even applied anywhere yet!). These opportunities came from connections I made in the program.
The classes were intense and there were myriad articles and books to read. By the end, I had a fundamental understanding of the revenue function of a growing technology company. I learned everything from business model canvas, finding product-market fit, SaaS unit economics, Spin Selling/Challenger Sales/BANT/Strategic Selling, Sales Management and a lot more! What I really liked is that they emphasized that personal growth is not separate from professional growth and had us do a lot of self-discovery projects as well.
The network that you get plugged into by joining GrowthX Academy is unreal. I was able to attend two Sales Conferences as part of the program with Sean Sheppard, the Sales & BD instructor. He is very well connected and just walking around with him at the conferences allowed me to meet and connect with multiple sales leaders. There were also a lot of impressive mentors that came in and guest lectured throughout the program.
I really enjoyed my time at GrowthX Academy and am happy to say that it doesn’t stop here. They are creating a community of professionals and mentors that keeps on growing. I plan on staying connected and will continue to receive value from the program and network well into the future.
