TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"When I first started my sales career I was not as comfortable making cold calls, as I am today. In my current role, to keep my sales pipeline strong, I am to make 100 cold calls per week to small to medium sized businesses within particular zip codes. I try to make 125-150 calls so that my pipeline never runs dry!"
Example #2
"I have not made cold calls in any position; however, I feel that with the right training, I will exude confidence doing anything! I believe in the products and services here and will have no problem selling people on the features and benefits. Maybe my experience selling Girl Guide cookies door-to-door when I was young, will help me out in this department!"
Example #3
"Yes, I am very comfortable making cold calls. In fact, in my current role, I train new employees on the art of cold calling. I think it is a great resource for new business development for most organizations. Personally, I make approximately 25 cold calls per day, to keep my leads coming in."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
