Sales, Hiking, and Making Work From Home Work For You with Sales Development Representative Jack Divney | Ep. 22

Jack Divney is a sales development representative at Segment, a customer data software company. He's a Colorado transplant who navigates the sales world when he’s not outside.

Jack is an avid skier, hiker, novice climber, and always looking for something new. He's been on a 40-day road trip across the U.S., traveled in Thailand for 20-days, and much more.

After graduating college a semester late, Jack took up a job as a substitute teacher in New Jersey. He later worked in sales at Xerox, but left the company when he decided he wanted to live in Colorado. Jack crashed on a friend's couch in Denver while pursuing a job at Education First. He got the position and remained there for over a year, until the pandemic limited operations. He then took the position at Segment.

In this episode we talk about:

How Jack got into sales

Making the most of working remotely

The most dangerous situations Jack has ever been in

How a road trip during college showed Jack the beauty of the Western U.S.

Why Jack initially moved to Colorado without a job

And the power of referrals
