Posted on Thursday, February 8, 2024

“As a Sales Development Representative, I have been able to strengthen my sales skills. I am constantly evolving and feel supported by peers most importantly management. Coming from a background of an array of Marketing, Sales, Retail, and Servings positions, that all taught me the importance of “client” first. It is nice to be a part of a company where it feels that ‘employees are actually first’. The company culture and its people make the company shine but it is the foundation of helping its employees evolve that makes Absorb, one of the best places I have worked at!” Jessica Aparico, SDR
