It’s time to start enjoying going to work.
Here at LAUNCH, we take pride in creating an awesome work environment for our staff. You’ll enjoy an electric atmosphere, zero micromanagement, constant learning, and a team that feels like family.
We value leadership by example, taking initiative, having high standards, and doing the right thing when no one is watching. Each of us is unique — with different backgrounds, passions, and goals — but we are united by a mission to be successful in life.
When you join the team, you’ll benefit from personal mentorship from professionals who have personally worked their way up in the company. We offer intensive training in which team members learn how to communicate effectively, interface with clients, finalize business deals, and manage an effective team. We teach Franklin Covey organizational methods as well as Ken Blanchard’s philosophy of effective leadership.
No more waiting around. When you join LAUNCH you’ll be taking your career into your own hands. Our philosophy is to reward employees based on their effort and results — not on seniority. It’s for this very reason that our staff is comprised of the most motivated and competitive professionals in the greater Chicago area. If you’re a top performer who takes pride in your work you’ll move up quickly at our firm.
All positions at LAUNCH are killer resume builders! Whether you’re here to move into a management position — or you’re looking to gain some valuable experience — our hands-on business training is the perfect foundation for a successful career. Whether you enjoy a long career here or you use the experience here as a springboard, you’ll have the foundation you need to advance to the top of your industry.
Did you know that sales training is provided to every single employee during on-boarding at our company, regardless of his or her role? Few members of our team are looking to make a career out of sales, necessarily. So why do we teach it? The reason is simple: sales is what drives business. Anyone who sees him or herself in a business management role in the future must understand how to bring in revenue. So as we say at LAUNCH, you don’t have to love it, you don’t have to do it your whole career, but you must understand it.
This position is ideal for the motivated go-getter who is looking to kick-off a rewarding business career. If you enjoy building relationships with clients and colleagues and have strong interpersonal skills, you might be just who we are looking for!
You will start off in an entry-level role, which is the perfect way to get your foot in the door and immediately begin working with Fortune 500 clients. You’ll have the unique opportunity to move up quickly within the firm. Once you master the sales and marketing basics, you’ll begin managing a medium-sized team, you’ll learn how to train and manage others, and you’ll assist in managing operations. If you’re looking for a dead-end cubicle job, this isn’t it!
Regardless of previous experience, ample training will be provided including corporate classroom training, hands-on field training, seminars and conferences, public speaking lessons, management training, and product marketing training.
We offer a competitive pay structure, weekly and monthly bonuses, and exciting travel opportunities.
If you thrive on competition and have experience as a member of a high-performing team, the Account Manager position might be a great fit.
