TI's FAST (Field Applications & Sales Training) Rotation Program is designed to prepare Sales & Applications team members for customer-oriented careers that pair technical skills with business perspectives. The program provides experiences that help rising TIers understand how to successfully grow TI's business and to thrive throughout their entire TI career. There are two available FAST program tracks: (1) Field Applications and (2) Technical Sales.

Technical Sales track
This 8-month experience aims to teach Technical Sales Associates (TSAs) how to build and manage customer relationships, and how to influence decisions to grow TI's revenue. The track includes three rotations*:

Rotation 1, Field Sales Office (FSO): This 3-month rotation integrates TSAs with a local TI sales team, offering first-hand experience of TI's sales process. TSAs partner with customers and internal teams to uncover and win every possible customer opportunity, and also leverage our one-of-a-kind virtual account system to learn how to find, define, and win opportunities in a mix of real-time and simulated environments.

Rotation 2, Product Marketing: This 3-month rotation focuses on the relationship between sales and a particular product line. This rotation helps TSAs understand product life cycles, roadmap development, marketing approaches, and ways to collaborate with product marketing to win at the customer.

Rotation 3, Sales Operations: This 2-month rotation provides first-hand experience working with the pricing and customer service teams. Focus areas for this rotation include pricing models, supply chain functions, price negotiation, and an overview of pricing guidelines, laws, procedures and tools.
