Training at 3Q:
Our training program is built to help you rapidly advance your career: we promote our Account Associates in an average of six months; within two years at 3Q, we turn most Account Associates into respected Account Managers.
You’ll have hands-on support every step of the way from when you walk in the door on day one, through your first tasks and interactions with clients, all the way until you’re leading a Quarterly Business Review (QBR).
During your time at 3Q we’ll offer, and create a transcript for, different training programs that are tailored to your current level of experience. We’ve broken a few of those out below.
Onboarding: Our onboarding program involves two weeks of hands-on instruction along with frequent reviews and feedback. After completing this program, you’ll be prepared to complete a variety of tasks for your team, and you’ll have a high-level understanding of how search works.
Extended Onboarding: For an additional six weeks, you’ll be invited to twice-weekly workshops that cover a broad range of topics. The purpose of these workshops is to help develop a broad understanding of industry topics and to sharpen skills for more advanced tasks.
Hands-on Task Assistance: During your first eight weeks, we encourage newer team members to work with our training team while completing routine tasks. You’ll have an opportunity to receive instant feedback on your work and get instruction on the less tangible aspects of workflow, technique, and QA.
Assessments and Feedback: You’ll have three formalized review sessions during your first 90 days at 3Q. We have a quiz based review at two weeks, an informal check-in at 45 days, and an in-person case study format assessment at 90 days. The purpose of all three is to ensure that you’re developing a comprehensive skill set and have a sharp understanding of all of our company best practices.
On-the-Job Training: While working within your team structure, you’ll benefit from a collaborative culture that is highly supportive and provides tons of hands-on learning experiences. You’ll work side by side with more senior team members, and you’ll also have our entire agency worth of experts available to assist you any time you’re working on tasks.
Coaching: We have a variety of 1:1 coaching programs aimed at assisting team members as they practice the skills involved in communicating with clients. You’ll have opportunities to work 1:1 with our trainers to sharpen skills needed for tasks that range from emails to client calls to in-person presentations. Each session is formatted in a 30-60 minute/week format, and they generally last between 4-6 weeks.
Managerial Skills Development: All of our first-time managers have an opportunity to participate in a group-based skills development program. This program walks your group through a seven-week course that covers aspects of becoming a first-time manager including: how to provide feedback, project management, communication technique, task delegation, and other more.
