“That’s not my job”…the four worst words you can say in business…and possibly in life. At one time or another, we may have all found ourselves in the position where someone is asking something of us that doesn’t fall under our “job description” and our immediate response is “that’s not my job.” And I mean, if you think about it, it probably isn’t under your direct list of responsibilities…but if you really think about it, is it really not your job and more importantly is that the right response?

You did it. You just accepted the next step and challenge in your sales career. You signed the offer letter, resigned and you are about to embark on your new journey. Your first 90 days are critical as this is when you immerse yourself into a new role and will be inundated with a new set of skills, knowledge and learning experiences. You want to fully throw yourself into this new role to not only challenge yourself but ultimately set yourself up for success.

Are you finding that your job search is a product of reading company reviews? We are currently in a world that has changed significantly. We have the capability of getting information from simply clicking a button. We are information hungry. We don’t know the answer, we Google it. We want reviews, we click on Yelp, Glassdoor, Rotten Tomato, Imdb and the list goes on and on. We seek the opinion of friends, family, significant others, co-workers etc.

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?

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.
