Why IT Solutions Provider SWC Was The Right Choice For Me

September 6, 2012   //   Careers, , , , ,

Upon graduating college, I had plenty of options to pursue a career in a variety of different industries. Many of my friends chose to go to larger companies that recruited heavily at my school, and while that was great for them, I’d like to share why I was drawn to the technology industry and specifically, Chicago area IT solutions provider, SWC Technology Partners.

  1. Technology is ever changing. Working in the technology industry means always being on the cusp of what’s new. From a salesperson’s perspective, this means I’m able to have new and interesting discussions with my customers all the time. A solution that may not have been right for them in an older version may be just the right solution for them now, and I’m able to facilitate that decision process.
  2. I’m helping customers solve real life issues. As an account manager for SWC, I am not selling a commodity… I’m selling a relationship. My customers have real life business challenges they are trying to overcome, and it’s my job to help them find the solutions and services that will best address those concerns. We are not successful unless our clients are successful, and it means a lot to me when I get to make a difference for my customer.
  3. I work with intelligent people. John Wooden is quoted as saying, “Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people…” At SWC, I benefit daily from the shared insight and education I receive from my colleagues and superiors. I appreciate the patience and effort of the practice leaders here who go above and beyond to help me understand our solution areas better.
  4. We are family. I know it sounds cheesy, but I have made some very solid relationships with people in the office. The people that work at SWC are genuinely good folks, many of whom I am happy to call my friends. We share lunches, birthdays, and other life events… I will never forget when my work comrades organized a surprise wedding shower for me last year… and actually surprised me. It really meant a lot.

For these reasons and more, I am delighted with my choice to work in the technology industry, and to have found a company like SWC.
