"sell"
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am a competitive candidate because I have a consistent history of exceeding my targets and goals for the past three years.

11.
Tell me about a project you completed recently that was ahead of schedule.
Is it essential for you to meet and exceed work-related deadlines? Assure the interviewer that you can remain focused on a project and accomplish your goals ahead of schedule.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current position I am expected to cold call 100 customers per week. Most of our associates will break this down into 20 per day, five days per week. What has attributed greatly to my success in this role is that I call 50 customers each day for the first two days and then have time to make additional calls throughout the week. This method generally equals a 25% surplus of cold calls to my portfolio. I am always ahead of target by going over and above that cold calling schedule."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"After recently hiring an entirely new team of people to roll out a capital equipment project, I realized they needed to learn to work together. I created cross-functional work group sessions to bring this team closer so they could work at an accelerated pace. We delivered the project seven days ahead of the original schedule. I truly believe this was because of great teamwork."
12.
When have you had to change a major component of your project due to new information being presented?
Being able to swivel the focus of your project is a necessary skill for your success in most careers. Talk to the interviewer about a time when a significant change occurred on a project. How did you handle the implementation of the new information?

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I had a large project last month that was nearly complete when the client called to say that the dimensions provided were incorrect. Because of this, our team had to re-do the entire proposal. It took us an additional four days of work but, in the end, the client was delighted with our work, and it resulted in new opportunities with them."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Last year I was nearing the end of a client project when we had an unexpected parts recall. It set us back a few weeks and was quite discouraging. I reminded my team that we could not control changes like this, and we agreed to do our best work with what we had."
13.
Tell me about a contribution you made to the last team you worked on.
It is essential to show the interviewer that you are a team player. Talk about a time that you were recently expected to achieve a goal in a team setting. How did you go above and beyond to ensure that your contribution was felt?

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Last month our company asked upper management to complete a full inventory audit. There were 4 of us in total and so we broke the audit requirements into shifts. These shifts had to take place when the warehouse was closed. In the end, there was one additional shift that nobody wanted to take. I volunteered myself to do that shift to show my dedication to my job and my co-workers. The gesture was appreciated, and the audit was completed on time."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My biggest contribution to my last team came in the form of leadership. I am a natural leader and can foster strong communication with my team which directly impacted the overall results."
14.
What career path interests you the most in this company?
This question is where it is essential to have completed some research on the interviewing company. Be sure to envision where you can see yourself fitting, and growing, with the organization before your interview. Do some research on what a career path could look like with this particular company.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"What interests me most about your company is that there are so many options when it comes to career growth. Ideally, I would like to earn my way into a Territory Sales role, then a Regional Manager position. Eventually, a Director of Sales or Marketing position would be ideal. Of course, I understand that this will take many years of dedication and hard work."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am interested in quality control. I am very analytical and love to solve problems. I understand that I have to learn the products before I can measure their quality."
15.
Tell me about the most rewarding experience you have had, working in a team environment. What made it so rewarding?
The interviewer wants to hear that you feel accomplished through teamwork. Talk about a time when you felt fulfilled through a team setting or project collaboration.

An example may be a time when you worked on a team project in University, a recent work collaboration, or possibly an extracurricular experience such as coaching a little league team.

Discuss the positive results of the teamwork and how you attained a positive outcome as a group.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"The most rewarding teamwork experience that I have had was in my last year of university. We were assigned a project in teams of 4 which accounted for quite a large part of our grade. I believe everyone pulled more than their weight because so much was at stake. Teamwork is very rewarding when everyone has something to win, or lose."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I almost always find working in a team environment to be very rewarding; however, one of the most notable experiences came from my most recent position. We had a team of sales, marketers, and design professionals who collaborated to create a new brand strategy for the company. I learned a lot and had a great time in the process."
