SWO Success: Sophia Sanders, Marquette University Alum

Title: Inside Sales Executive – Chicagoland

Where did you go to college?: Marquette UniversitySophia Sanders

How long have you been with SWO?: About 1 Year

What has been your career progression thus far?:
I was hired as a Customer Support Specialist and progressed into the Inside Sales Executive role within 6 months.

Biggest challenge you’ve faced at SWO: Having to work with Packers fans (just kidding!)  I was thrown into my territory very quickly, so I would say my biggest challenge was quickly building relationships with my customers and my team.

What is a typical day like for you?:  No day really follows the same path (which I love).  I’m a morning person: I  like to get in a little early, drink my Starbucks and  level set for the day. I’m usually on calls/working on customer requests until lunch time, when I go grab food with co-workers. After lunch, I like to touch base with my BDMs on their forecast, pipeline and any new business going on.

What activities do you enjoy in your spare time?:  You can normally find me at Barre Class, on a bike ride or at a concert.                              

Favorite SWO Pun?:  SWO SO HARD

Where do you see yourself in 5 years:  In between mourning the loss of my twenties, I see myself as a Business Development Manager and helping to grow a territory.

Sophia participating in a customer event: Indoor Skydiving!

Favorite part about working at SWO:
I love going to customer/networking events.
Being able to interact with both your customers and
other SWOmies (another good SWO pun) outside of
work hours is awesome. I have been very lucky and
have been able to attend sporting events, go indoor
skydiving and even be serenaded by the sweet sounds of Taylor Swift at Soldier Field.

Advice to people interested in a SWO Career: You get what you put in! Also, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “Good things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” (Okay, maybe Abraham Lincoln didn’t say that, but I am sure he thought it!)
