Success and happiness go hand in hand for Rory, Sales Development Representative
Since I began to really think about what I wanted to do with my life and my career, I have come to the realisation that, although I do want to be successful, I don't want to be successful and unhappy.
When my friend told me about Qualtrics and the culture within the company, I knew that it would be the right fit for me. It sounded like the perfect environment to not only flourish in my career but to also meet like-minded people and develop life-long friendships.
What attracted you to Qualtrics in the first place?
I had just arrived back from a year of living in Melbourne and was pretty down that my "year of fun" had come to an end. I knew that I wanted to work in sales in the tech industry but that was about it.
My friend who works for Qualtrics then invited me for a coffee and gave me the full lowdown on the company. I learnt about the opportunities for progression, the opportunities for self-development but most importantly, the culture.
What is your favorite part of your role?
My favourite part of my role is that no day is the same. Although my tasks may be similar, I am always talking to new people from new companies, discussing new problems, and helping them to find new solutions.
Any tips for someone who is considering a role at Qualtrics?
I would recommend just getting in contact with people from the organisation and try to get a feel of what the company is about.
I have spent very little time in the actual office due to the unfortunate circumstances the world has found itself in. However, upon reflecting on my time over the past 8 months, I can gladly say that I have met some fantastic people during my short time here and have never felt anything but welcome. I look forward to many more years here and to eventually meeting some virtual friends in person in Dermott's.
What has surprised you most about working at Qualtrics?
I guess the single thing that has stood out to me about Qualtrics is that the organisation is always listening. They do exactly what they preach, which is harder to say about other companies. They are constantly looking for feedback from employees on how they can improve in order to enhance employees’ experiences.
