Sales hiring is challenging. 

First-time sales candidates are only available seasonally, post-graduation from colleges and universities. This makes hiring off-season, challenging, and open headcount almost impossible to find

Some sobering statistics:


The average turnover for a sales team of 10 with the majority of exits occurring off-cycle and without warning.


The average number of days that an open sales position remains vacant.


On a sales team of 10 people with a quota of $50k/mo. this translates to an impact of well over $850k per year.

To gain a competitive edge, your organization requires a different approach to identifying non-traditional sources of high-potential sales talent. 


This requires sourcing "pre-vetted" candidates from a different talent pool.

But how do you identify those who are most likely to succeed?

For Veterans

Every year, 250,000 veterans separate the Armed Services. 

More than ½ are under 25, only 3% have college degrees and 75% separate active duty with no job.

Although military members with specialized training find roles, those who do will have 5 jobs in their next 3 years.

The bridge from military life, military skills and military discipline to civilian life requires a transition.  A boot camp.  An indoctrination. 


And that's exactly what we provide at Sales Platoon - with a focus on leveraging and translating highly skilled, resilient, dedicated, adaptive and disciplined men and women from active duty to a career that aligns well.  A career in sales.

Our Story


Transitioning Military Experience to
World Class Sales Results

Our veterans have the ability to quickly learn new methodologies, execute in a controlled environment, overcome adversity, adapt, improvise and overcome obstacles with minimal supervision and resources while embedded within diverse teams.


Since sales is one of the few professions where 90% of the time people say no and the other10% still means success, this further de-risks the risk of attrition due to adversity.


Veterans lack the experience to translate their military experience into the civilian world and the civilian world that struggles do to leverage their strengths. 


That's where we come in. 

Who are the veterans
