Let’s face it. Searching for a new sales job is hard. It’s like dating. Both parties, job seekers and hiring managers alike, are searching for the “perfect fit”. It can take several different interviews, some really great ones and some really bad ones, until you find “the one.” It’s also like trying to be a mind reader. As a job seeker, you are trying to figure out what a hiring manager is actually looking for in a candidate.

When you’re building your career, you are looking for both opportunity and sustainability. The goal is join a company that you like being a part of and one that invests in you as an employee. Many people change jobs over the course of their career for many different reasons, and the two biggest reasons are generally around compensation and location. However, sales professionals aren’t always chasing the dollar, and are sometimes motivated by other red flags to search for a new job.

One of the most over looked but important parts of any interview is asking questions of the interviewer. I cannot count how many times I have received unfavorable feedback from a client that the candidate didn’t ask any questions. By asking questions you are indicating your interest in the position and that you are taking the search seriously.

The ultimate goal of the interviewing process is to get the job offer. After interviewing with a handful of companies and multiple people, you start to really connect with your potential future co-workers and managers, and believe there are enough positives about the opportunity to continue the interview process. You continue to deliver a consistent message of being very interested in the role and closing them by asking what would hold them back from offering you the job. Now what do you do when they actually make you the job offer?

Looking for a sales job is similar to trying to find the perfect pair of running sneakers. As a runner, you look for the shoe that has the perfect arch, adequate support, and good style. You understand that one size does not fit all. Some people may be more lenient one way or another, and may end up compromising style for comfort, or comfort for style, but it all comes down to one thing which is does the shoe fit and will it help me perform better?

Considering a sales career is usually not on the top of the list when asked “what do you want to be when you grow up?” The stigma is that you don’t want to be “pushy” or you don’t’ want to be that “used car sales person”. More likely than not, you have dealt with “that” salesperson and think why would anyone want to do that?
