It was the appeal of something new that lead Dylan to apply to Bealstone Inc. Earlier last year. This time last year, Dylan was a full time carpenter but decided that he needed better opportunity for his beautiful family. Over the last year, he’s earned recognition from the client countless times and better yet the opportunity and skills to more then support his family. Meet Dylan, our spotlight feature this month!
Dylan hails from Monongahela and attended Ring Gold High School. After graduation, he earned an associated degree in commercial carpentry and started a career. After deciding that carpentry was no longer a viable option, he started submitting applications, where he found his way to Bealstone Inc. He liked that promotions were given based on performance, not seniority. It was an opportunity to try something new and exciting under the well structured training that Bealstone Inc. provides. “Every day is a new fun and exciting challenge on how to improve not only your career but yourself as well.” according to Dylan. He really made sure to take advantage of what our team has to offer by coming in early to meet with top performers and reaching out to our client’s best across the country. With all of his hard work, he was able to go from someone with no experience in our industry to consistently the top 5% performers nation wide in matter of only 5 months. Not only did he become one of our best, he became a top trainer helping others maximize their potential.
What we love most about Dylan is that he proves you don’t have to have experience in the field of sales to do well at Bealstone Inc. With his amazing optimism and willingness to outwork the rest of the team, he was quickly able to move up with in the company. His advice to those looking at working with the Bealstone Inc team is to evaluate your work ethic and student mentality. “I had absolutely no experience or degree in this career. This company really invests in its employees. With their help, I have been able to make a great living while providing for my entire family in no time.”
Dylan is a native to Pennsylvania who enjoys spending time with his family and friends on his off time. He enjoys camping every weekend he can with his family and loves to hunt and fish. He’s also a nerd at heart! Learn more about Dylan and the Bealstone Inc. team here.
At Bealstone, Inc, we believe that hard work and dedicated training can help you go a long way in your career. This is especially true for our interns, who come to us ready to learn about running a business in ways that you can not get from the classroom. This month, we asked Intern Amanda to share what she has learned during her time with us.
Amanda is a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh, where she is studying Human Resources Management and Finance, with minor in Economics and Political Science. She spends her time outside of school hiking, and has hiked trails in 12 National Parks so far. She is also the Vice President of Member Relations for Pitt’s Enactus Club, a student organization that works in the community to help start-up companies with their marketing and finance needs.
Amanda came to Bealstone, Inc looking for a real-life business learning experience outside of the classroom, where she would have the opportunity to advance her career in a friendly environment. She found that at Bealstone, Inc: “At Bealstone, I felt as though everyone wanted me to succeed and were excited to help! The welcoming environment made it easier for me to ask questions, and there was always someone willing to teach me.”
While at Bealstone, Inc, Amanda has learned many skills relating to operating a business, including how to interview prospective employees, how to close sales through customer interactions, and how important it is to have a positive attitude towards any challenge, “because attitude is one of the key components of achieving success.” She has enjoyed working in an environment where interns are appreciated, where opinions are valued by everyone who works there, and where she was greeted every day with a smile.
After she graduates, Amanda plans to prove herself at a company where she can work to advance into an upper-level position. Based on her time here at Bealstone, Inc, she will not have a problem succeeding!
