SALES JOBS, SALES CAREER, CAREER DEVELOPMENT & CAREER EDUCATION
Regardless of the level of experience you have, you need to be prepared when it comes to interviewing for a sales job. If you put a lot of thought into the interview process and prepare well, you will be in a position to answer common interview questions with ease, sell your strengths, dilute any areas of weakness and convince the interviewer that you can add value to the company.
When preparing for your interview, it is useful to think of some of the most common interview questions that you might be asked and to write down your answers to these. Remember that interviewers are interested in what you personally are capable of, so use the first person – “I” and not “we” - when preparing and answering questions. Not only should you be writing down your answers, but you should be rehearsing them too - but there is no need to rote-learn your answers because your answers need to flow naturally during the actual interview.
