As we examine who are clients are looking to hire, it all boils down to the same basic criteria: inexpensive top talent with the perfect skill. You may laugh, but it is true. This is an interesting market and companies feel they are in the driver's seat. To some degree this is accurate, but as an executive search firm exclusive to sales, we have noticed that the tables are turning as we roll into the New Year.

Millennials. You can pretty much spot them a mile away. They typically have some type of technological device strapped to their hip, pressed up to their ear or glued to their fingertips. They have high expectations of the work place requiring ambitious salaries, places to relax, perhaps take a snooze, and a definite dose of fun to keep boredom at bay. Is your company ready for this new generation of workers?

So you walk into your interview calm, cool and collected. You confidently think "I've got it. I'm so prepared that nothing will stump me." The first few questions are text book. Really? Could they get even a little creative? And then, smack! Yeah that's right. The booby trap questions! All of a sudden you start sweating. You respond with "I'm sorry can you rephrase the question?" That didn't work so you start fake coughing and ask for a glass of water to give yourself a little more time. Wait a minute. What just happened?? Do I answer it this way or that way? Do I tell them yes or no? OMG!!! SOS!!!!!

Dear Mr. Jones, I am writing to thankyou for taking time out of your busy shedule to meet with me. I found our discussion about ACME's new Gizmo software to be very excirting, and I to believe in gizzmo's potential to be disrputive in the marketplace. I understand from our discussion that you are looking for an agressive Sales guy that is not afraid to pick up the phone and make calls. I welcome the chance to further demonstrate that I am the right sales person for the job!

Picture this: You spend hours the night before your interview preparing. You review the typical interview questions and rehearse the answers over & over reciting them out loud until it sounds like poetry, flowing lyrics to your ears, answering questions without hesitation. "That's it. I'm done. I am going to ace this interview." You grab your calculator for the last time figuring your starting weekly paycheck. With a sigh, it's lights out.
