Alumni Success Spotlight on Cody Wilder at CarLotz!!

I am so fortunate to be able to spotlight Cody Wilder on my blog.  Cody is a VCU business alumni from 2013 who transitioned his sales internship to a full-time position at CarLotz.  This company is a mover and shaker in Richmond and I am thrilled that they have such an interest in VCU!   They are extremely active with Business Career Services typically participating in our coffee breaks (see the date below for their next visit), career fairs, mock interview and resume programs. Just last week Aaron Montgomery, Founder/COO, was on campus as a panelist with the Careers in Management Program.  This semester alone, CarLotz has posted three positions in HireBusRams and since they are expanding, I expect to see more opportunities from them.  The Technology Internship, position # 6424 is still open!

I asked Cody to share a bit about CarLotz, and his position, with my bloggers.  Here is what he had to say:

My journey at CarLotz started as an intern in February 2013.  After graduation, I hit the ground running as a full time CarLotz teammate.  CarLotz is an incredible place to work.  The team is constantly evolving and coming up with new ideas to improve our company.  At CarLotz, we are all crucial players to the team, we are our own entrepreneurs working together to create the best way to buy or sell a used car, working collaboratively to re-engineer and change the industry for the better.

Since starting my career at CarLotz I have been given the opportunity to work in different aspects of the business.  Learning the different sides of the business is setting me up to succeed at CarLotz and develop valuable skill sets particularly in the areas of sales, customer service, relationship management, and people management.  Currently, I have been given the opportunity to manage the Business Development Center – “BDC”.  It is my job to build a strong relationship management program for our clients “customers”, as well as train new teammates and manage their workflow.
