An educational technology and professional services company based in Huntington plans to hire 30 new entry-level employees in the next two months with the goal of “keeping good talent here on Long Island,” according to Chris Hickey, the president of Teq, which started in 1972 and now has 140 workers with the hope of adding more.
“We have a real commitment to Long Island and am looking to recruit Long Island’s best and brightest recent college grads,” said Hickey. “With our top-notch sales training and development program, we plan to create a world-class sales team on Long Island, through developing these recent college grads, with a career path from inside sales to field sales.”
Applicants who make the cut will be divided into three training classes of 10 sales account executives, with the first session set to start July 20, followed by another on Aug. 15 and the third on Sept. 15.
Originally known as Tequipment, the company says it “works closely to empower educators, leverage and improve technology integration, and increase student achievement and success in the Common Core curriculum.”
Earlier this week Teq announced that it had hired Robert-Wayne Harris, the former superintendent of the Roosevelt School District, as its vice president of professional development.
“Robert is an incredible leader and accomplished educational professional, with a deep understanding of technology and professional development,” said Hickey. “Most of all, he has what our schools need to excel.”
