Dear Recruiter, I am a gainfully employed sales representative and for the first time in a long time, I'm going to start selectively searching for a new opportunity. I've started to look on my own, but I have not had much traction and I was told to work with a specialized recruiter. To be honest, I'm not sure what to expect or what type of questions I should be asking. Help!

Do you often find yourself saying, "I can't believe I just did that??" or "I'm such an idiot" because of a small detail that you either did not notice or chose to ignore?A salesperson that forgets meetings, makes spelling and grammar mistakes and has a hard time staying organized will not find success in sales.

With today's volatile job market, are you coming across as desperate or aggressive in your job search? Desperate times call for desperate measures. However, at what point do you cross the line of desperation and no longer appeal to the company you have worked so hard to impress. Sales professionals are competitive, strive to beat out their competition, and do not like to hear no for an answer.

Millennials, often referred to as Generation Y or Generation Next, are entering the job market at full force. Traditional values deemed important such as, job stability, salary and a record of success are still relevant to this generation.
