Sales Job Interview: Your Make-Or-Break Preparation
We’re done with the 3 tools you absolutely need to get to the interview stage.
And now you are sitting in front of the recruiter.
This is that make-or-break stage that will decide whether you will get the offer or not.
Here’s something that you should be aware of:
On average, each corporate job offer attracts 250 resumes. Of those candidates, 4 to 6 will get called for an interview, and only one will get the job. (Glassdoor)
So your chance of getting past this stage is 1/250 i.e. 0.40%.
But should that worry you?
No, not if you approach this with preparation.
You should learn to handle the 5 fundamental interview questions that equip you to handle any interview question.
You should learn how to handle both, challenging and common interview questions.
For example questions like:
- “Tell me something about yourself.”
- “Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses.”
- “You have been away from the market, so you will take a lot more time to pick up things, won’t you?”
- “You do not have experience in the domain and industry that we operate in, so why should we consider you?”
- “You have made frequent job shifts? Can you explain?”
- “Why should we hire you?”
- How to handle salary negotiations and get the best value out of a potential job-offer
- How to follow up post an interview and increase chances of receiving a call for the second round
- How to differentiate yourself from other candidates
Overall, you should find a connect with the interviewer.
So do prepare for this final stage thoroughly.
