Next Door Worldwide, Marketing and Management Trainee (For recent college grads): - Application via WayUp



Marketing & Communications
Los Angeles, CA, USA
Posted on Saturday, June 3, 2023
This role is with Next Door Worldwide. WayUp is partnering with Next Door Worldwide to hire top talent.

Next Door is looking for the future leaders of the company. The trainee program requires completion of an 8-week paid trial period before acceptance. The 15-20 hr per week trial allows the company and candidate to make sure it is a great match before beginning the leadership development course. After the 8-week trial, candidates that qualify are put into a 9 month leadership development course. The course allows candidates to work in different aspects of the marketing and sales departments of multiple companies (our non-profit, marketing company, solar company), while learning more about the solar and energy efficiency industry. At the end of the 9 months candidates that complete the course are given a management position. Pay coming out of the leadership development program starts at $100,000. Next Door is looking for the best of the best and pays candidates very well as they progress through the course. There are 6 benchmarks that take 1-2 months. The completion of each benchmark comes with increased pay. The leadership program is extremely challenging and only 30% of candidates are expected to reach all benchmarks. Candidates that fail to hit all benchmarks within the 9 months are either let go or offered a non-leadership position in the marketing department. Responsibilities during the initial 8-week trial:

  • Learn company mission, values and sales process
  • Learn about the available solar and energy efficiency rebate programs
  • Shadow mentor in the field to understand customer process-flow
  • Work with teammates to execute marketing plan that effectively communicates to potential customers what solar and energy efficiency programs are available
  • Demonstrate leadership abilities
  • Convert prospects into consultations for your mentor

Next Door does not believe typical college courses are effective in developing leadership skills so candidates must have demonstrated the following:

  • Leadership ability OUTSIDE the classroom or through non-traditional classes
  • Previous work experience that involved communicating effectively to clients/potential clients
  • Demonstrated ability to have a growth mindset
  • Desire to do work that makes a positive impact
  • Positive attitude
  • Integrity
