What are your job responsibilities?

My job is much more than selling sensors to my customers. We support our customers with our technical knowledge and help solve issues in their facilities. We go into manufacturing plants, solve applications, sell KEYENCE products and provide support to our customers through their whole process. We help with single-sensor solutions all the way to month long projects. Selling and support is key, but so is keeping track of ongoing projects, future projects, and maintaining a solid pipeline for the months to come.

How did you learn the technical skills at KEYENCE?

I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. My major was Business Management and I had a Sales Certificate. Coming into my career at KEYENCE, I was not a very technical person. I thought it was interesting, but had no experience or technical background. I had also just graduated and I was worried coming in that I wouldn’t be able to keep up, but KEYENCE’s training program taught me everything that I needed to know about the products I am working with every single day. We learned the products inside and out and then we learned how to sell them with our unique sales process.

What do you enjoy about your career and your position?

I like that I have a mix of office and field days. We have two days where we are calling, emailing, and setting up our own schedule and then we have three days where we are out in the field working with our customers. It is easy to get burnt out when each day is the same, but at KEYENCE, every day is different and you choose what you make of your days with customers. Some days are more problem solving where they show you an issue and you have to be the one to pick out how to solve it. Some days are more support based where you are making sure that everything is working the way it should. It can change with every customer visit.

What do you like about KEYENCE?

I like that KEYENCE is extremely goal oriented. Each month, quarter, half and year has a goal. I also like that KEYENCE has high expectations and they want you to exceed those expectations. Everyone wants you to hit your goals and do well. Everyone wants to see the next person succeed.

Any message you would share to prospective applicants?

If someone were thinking about applying to be a part of KEYENCE, my message would be apply! Even if you are missing a technical or a sales background, the weeks you will spend in training will fully prepare you for the job. This is a great company for those coming right out of school as they set a great foundation for you to build your career on. KEYENCE is a company that you can grow with. You get to meet and talk to many different people, you get to see some cool things with customers, and every day is a different experience under your belt.
