Sales Development is the foundation of our sales organization where new business opportunities come to life. Within the Business Development Associate (BDA) role, we support outbound sales teams by assisting them through strategic prospecting efforts and extensive account research. BDAs consistently make a tangible impact in the Sales Development Organization by generating millions of dollars of new business pipeline each year.
Additionally, BDAs are enrolled in an intensive sales training program that has been built specifically for the benefit of current university students and recent graduates. The purpose of our program is to provide new professionals with the fundamental skills necessary to achieve a successful sales career at Salesforce.
“I walked into this internship thinking that I had incredible sales skills for my age. Yet, I quickly realized how there are so many other sales processes, and tricks that work for some scenarios better than others. Overall, I learned a lot at Salesforce. I have developed skills that have not had much attention before, and I have taken away ideas and sales tips that I will take with me throughout all of my future endeavors.”
“Culturally diverse. Positive environment and inclusive atmosphere. Challenging, friendly competition. Inspiring leaders. At Salesforce you have all the resources in the world and everyone around you wants to see you succeed.”
“The leadership team is counting on us to play a role in Salesforce's missions and initiatives by giving us all the power to achieve them through growth and innovation.”
