Graduates publicly announced for the second SPEED class, a six-week all-expenses paid sales training program hosted by SkillStorm, a national technical consulting and outsourcing firm

Online PR News – 04-August-2010 – – SkillStorm today announced the second graduating class of the recently implemented SPEED training program. SPEED, the SkillStorm Program for Extreme Educational Development, is a highly competitive, intense sales training program where the top ten candidates compete for a Technical Recruiter position in one of five SkillStorm branches nationwide. Five trainees successfully completed the extensive six-week training program and have been offered full-time positions in the Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Dallas SkillStorm offices.

“SPEED is perhaps the single most important hiring initiative for our company right now. The success of this innovative program has been so overwhelming that we have planned four to five classes for 2011. We expect big things from our most recent graduates. These sales-minded and motivated individuals have a strong drive to succeed and will definitely go far within SkillStorm,” said SkillStorm CEO Vince Virga.

The SPEED graduates include Nikki Reusch and Jacob Roccanti from Florida State University; Dave Martinez from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York; Hardee Sanders from the University of South Carolina; and Kris Ellis from West Texas A&M University. The graduates underwent six weeks of rigorous sales and recruiter training that combined lecture-style sessions with hands-on field experience. SkillStorm covered all training expenses including travel costs to the training site in San Diego, lodging, food, a weekly salary and performance bonuses.

The next SPEED training class is scheduled to begin on August 16, 2010 in San Diego, California. The timing of the upcoming SPEED class presents a perfect employment opportunity for recent college graduates who will face a competitive job market during the second half of 2010. SPEED serves as an ideal career development tool where college graduates gain sales experience in a fun and rewarding environment during a time when the college graduate job market is low due to the recovering economy. Interested applicants for future classes should complete the free SPEED Personality Assessment ( to be considered for the program.
