As the CEO of sales recruiting firm, I listen to people’s stories every day. I learn about people’s professional lives and personal lives. I learn how they got to where they are today and what their plans are for the future. Stories are powerful and help us piece together our lives and relate to one another. It’s a great skill to be able to articulate your background, especially when interviewing for a new job opportunity.
Driving traffic to your job post begins with writing job descriptions that even the most passive sales candidates can’t resist. When writing job descriptions there are two common mistakes: Mistake #1 is assuming that you can just post a job and have applications start pouring in. Mistake #2 is thinking that the number of applications is equal to the quality of applicants. I see sales job descriptions every day and some are really good…and some are really bad.

As a recruiter hiring for your company, you are faced with daily difficult task of finding qualified sales candidates. You spend most of your time hunting for top talent. You reach out to your network of professional, you ask for referrals, you post jobs, and you search vast databases and social media sites (like LinkedIn) for qualified sales professionals.

Here we are, in the madness of the summer season, the sun is shining, people are taking vacations, and we are still trying to get work done.
