How To Land A Top Sales Or Marketing Job
By Andrew Rowe
Here are a couple of things that you should think about as youâ€™re preparing for an interview with a potential employer:
First of all make sure that as you prepare for the interview, you learn as much as you can in advance about the company. What are its core markets? Which customers does it target? Who are the competitors? What is the company unique selling proposition? What is managementâ€™s vision & values? What does the leadership stand for? What is the culture about? These are all things that you should study and research prior to going into your interview.
You should also prepare questions to the hiring manager on these issues. Their answers will help you to determine the fit between yourself and the company as you explore the job opportunity, and it will demonstrate an advanced understanding of the company to the interview team. This will give you a leg up on other interviewees who donâ€™t do this advanced preparational work. Iâ€™m amazed by the number of candidates I meet who canâ€™t think of one intelligent question to ask about the company or the opportunity!
When youâ€™re preparing for a sales and marketing interview, make sure that you have a clear set of responses that are prepared for standard questions, such as â€śwhat are you looking for?,â€?â€śwhere do you see your career going?,â€?â€śgive me an overview of your careerâ€? â€śtell me about your achievement track record?â€?/P>
