Teachers in tech? It’s more common than you’d think.
At Lessonly by Seismic, a significant number of the employees used to be teachers.
At the time of Lessonly’s acquisition by Seismic, about 10% of their 250-300 employees were former teachers.
Harish M. and I asked Connor Burt why that is.
Conner Burt explained that teachers have the perfect mindset for RevOps:
“They get it. They can dive in and teach themselves and figure out what they need to. That makes them really great in client success roles and training roles.”
Teachers are used to working hard and are open to learning new things. They bring a "can do" attitude to the business world.
While former teachers may not have a background in tech, they get sh%&t done and can be wonderful culture adds to your organization.
