Build your career
Grow Your Earnings
Businesses on Overpass reward excellence. As you produce results for clients, you raise demand for your services – and your income.
Build Your Reputation
By promptly responding to interview requests, consistently showing up for interviews, and completely fulfilling your contracts, you build your reputation and get more of the work you covet most.
Dedicated Overpass Talent Advocates guide you through the full process – from optimizing your profile to engaging with prospective clients and securing the positions you deserve.
To get you off on the right foot, an Overpass Talent Advocate jumps on an onboarding call with you to ensure you make the most of the platform. We’ll even do a kickoff call with you and your client so you hit the ground running.
Issues with clients happen. When you’re on Overpass, you’re never alone. Have a non-responsive client? Rocking your lead gen efforts but need to request more hours this week? We’re always ready to assist.
Overpass builds your career in a variety of ways. We offer a range of skill-building training programs – including best practices relating to a range of positions – to help you be the best remote sales professional you can be.
Create Your Profile
Your first step in becoming an Overpass agent is to create your profile, which serves as your online resume in our marketplace. Be sure to list all of your previous relevant work experience. Especially valuable are any past performance metrics (such as how many calls you made per week, or how many sales you closed per month). You’ll also need to record a sample of your voice.
Once the checklist on the left side of the page has been completed, your profile will be automatically submitted to our team.
Profile Review and Approval
Within 5-7 business days of your submission, one of our Talent Advocates will reach out to schedule a brief phone conversation. During this call, we’ll review your profile and learn more about your background. If we think you’re a good fit for our marketplace, you’ll be approved that day.
Apply for Positions
Once you’re approved, it’s time to begin applying to jobs in our Marketplace! Our most successful agents apply to 20+ positions every week. Be sure to only apply to roles that interest you and fit your schedule, however. You’ll be able to add a brief note with each application -- remember to be as professional as possible to give yourself the best chance.
Interview Requests & Interviewing
By the end of your first month on the platform, most agents will have received at least one or two interview requests. Once you receive that initial email, you’ll usually receive a call from the client within 48 hours. If you need help connecting with the client, reach back out to your Talent Advocate.
After a successful interview, the client will send you a contract offer. If the hours and pay work for you, go ahead and accept! If you need to negotiate the pay or hours, let us know.
Training & Getting Started
Once you’ve accepted a contract, you’ll need two brief training sessions. First, an Overpass employee will give you an overview in our dialer/CRM system, so you feel comfortable using our platform. Then, you’ll have a “kickoff call” with the client themself, to learn more about their specific product or service. Then you’re off to the races!
Overpass is both an online marketplace for remote phone work and a platform for outbound sales campaigns.
We happily accept contractors from all over the world! However, the majority of our clients are based in the United States, and need agents who do speak English and are available to make calls during daytime hours in the U.S. Depending on your location, this may require working evening or overnight hours.
To work in the Overpass platform, you will need all of the following:
1. Previous experience (At least two years of prior work in sales or appointment setting).
2. A desktop or laptop computer.
3. A headset, or headphones with a built-in microphone.
4. A quiet place to work with a reliable internet connection.
While every client and company is different, all jobs through the Overpass marketplace are primarily focused on making outbound sales calls from an existing list of contacts. You’ll use our software to make these calls through your computer, and follow a script written by the client. After each call, you’ll make notes and document the outcome of the conversation.
Yes and no. When you create your profile, you can specify exactly which days and times you’re available to work. You can adjust your availability as needed, and you’re never obligated to accept a contract that doesn’t fit your schedule. Once you do accept a contract, however, you are expected to adhere to those regular shifts.
As a contractor, you can specify your own hourly rate, and our Talent Advocate team will suggest a competitive starting rate based on your professional background. Rates generally range from $3/hour up to $30/hour, depending on your skills and industry expertise.
The first step to becoming an Overpass contractor is to create a profile in our system. Click Become An Agent, enter your email address, then tell us about your experience and work history. Remember that our clients are focused on your sales expertise and phone skills, so emphasize those parts of your experience, even if those roles are not your most recent. Once your profile is completed, we will review it and contact you to discuss next steps.
