Career Pipe’s sales training program was a life changing experience. The program was thorough, informative, and inspiring. I left with an understanding of the sales process that prepared me for success and enticed employers. Thanks to Career Pipe, I launched my career with New York Life. I am finally doing what I love and positively impacting my community through my work.
What I learned in 6 weeks would have taken me 6 years to find on my own.

10 years ago, I didn’t think of sales as anything other than the retail positions I worked in college where sales transactions were happening daily. Little did I know, I could make a living providing solutions for complex business problems. Sadly, members of my community still don’t know that these opportunities exist.
Career Pipe is focused on a singular mission and purpose: To foster an environment of sales excellence and achievement that will allow our scholars to reach their fullest potential and gain financial independence through a career in professional B2B sales.
Our founders are on a mission to expand the awareness of college graduates about the financial opportunities available to them by pursuing a career in sales. Eduardo has personally experienced the difficulties of learning the technical skills required for the profession due to a lack of sales-specific learning and education opportunities in traditional academic settings.
As most seasoned professionals will attest, the profession requires ongoing learning and countless hours of self-education. Many schools across the country are recognizing the gap in education and are making attempts to incorporate B2B sales as part of their curriculum. However, according to the Harvard Business Review, only 5% of colleges in the U.S. have formal sales programs.
This gap in the market, coupled with a passion to educate students from underrepresented communities about the potential financial opportunities of a career in sales, gave birth to Career Pipe.
