Hear What Our Graduates Had to Say

"What I loved about SAS’ sales program is the impact it had on me emotionally. Yes it prepared me for software sales, and yes it provided an opportunity to network with a plethora of industry-leading talent. What I uniquely valued and appreciated about the program is how it functioned as a family, rather than a pressure boiler. You truly come out on the other side stronger than before and with a closely knit network of like-minded individuals. I’ve never experienced anything like this; it’s amazing."

Dionys Gragousian, Account Executive, SAS

 

"So my best advice ... really be comfortable communicating with different groups of people. Because consulting is a lot about understanding people. Understanding their problems."

Patrick Campbell, Sr. Associate Account Executive, CFS Banking Team 1, SAS

 

"As far as my team, we’re continually talking and discussing different topics or questions with one another. There’s never a bad question to ask. They’re always there to help you out."

Kelly Hobson, Associate Analytical Consultant, Analytics Delivery and Global Enablement, SAS

 

"The consultants here really know how a new employee feels and what resources they need in order to succeed in their job. And they really support us."

Kunal Shah, Senior Associate Technical Consultant, Platform Services, SAS
