Tales From The CSAP Floor

APPLY FOR CSAP TODAY: The 'Tales from the CSAP floor' podcast takes listeners through the 'Cisco Sales Associates Program' Journey. Made by CSAPers for CSAPers, this podcast gives a deeper insight into the program through the personal stories of our Associates from the day they first discover CSAP, until the moment they graduate and go into the world. The Cisco Sales Associates Program, known as CSAP, is our global Early in Career program for young professionals interested in starting a career in Sales or Engineering with Cisco. Give the CSAP team one year to build your business skills & technical knowledge in the classroom and gain hands-on experience all the while being paid to learn. You'll be joining a company that drives innovation and strives to be the bridge between technology and business outcomes. This program has two main tracks. The ASR, Associates Sales Representative and the ASE, Associates Systems Engineer. In both tracks, you'll learn how to position and sell Cisco solutions. The main difference is that ASEs dive deeper into the technology and lead technical discussions with customers to become trusted technology advisors while ASRs lead business conversations to become trusted business advisors. Stay tuned and listen to our tales from all over the world all happening here on the 4th floor of the Cisco Amsterdam office. #WeAreCisco #goCSAP #sales
