      Good Job For Recent College Grads

      26 Dec 2021 - Sales Engineer II 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Keyence is a great starting place to get experience in manufacturing as a recent college grad. Getting to tour all sorts of manufacturing plants and getting a hands on experience with various automation products was incredibly rewarding and fun. It pays great for someone right out of college, and finding a job after leaving Keyence was super easy.

      Cons

      Lots of travel and long hours on the road depending on your territory. I spent at least one night a week in a hotel and averaged 800 miles of driving a week. It was less technical of a role than I had hoped for, and at the end of the day it is just a sales job.

      Gives you relevant materials and products to execute sales activities, which is great for beginners in this industry. It also provides good learning platform for sales techniques and knowledges.

      Cons

      Inflexible working culture, where room for creativity is minimum due to the tight control from management in sales processes. Less involvement in business development, and purely focused on sales is what keyence is good at, therefore suitable for pure salesperson.
