What do you consider an ideal sales job for you? *

TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"I have experience in both inside and outside sales but have developed a passion and knack for outside sales in particular. Something about the face-to-face connection helps me leverage a close. Of course, ideally, I would love all warm leads, but I know that's not how sales works, so I'm not afraid to cold call. As far as what my day or week would look like, I like to block my day to be productive. Emails and cold calls or follow-ups in the morning, and then appointments in the afternoon. This schedule helps me stay in the right mindset throughout the day and optimally productive."
Example #2
"My ideal sales position is with a company that is mentorship-driven, offering regular coaching opportunities, to people like myself who are new to sales but have a lot to offer. I would like my great transferable skills such as upselling, customer service, and dispute resolution, utilized and then better honed to make me a top sales professional."
Example #3
"Ideally, I am seeking a position that is primarily outside sales with a fair amount of international travel. I enjoy being out and about, meeting with high-level executives and closing major deals. I feel that I have earned the ability to work autonomously for the most part and am very open to a role where I could mentor and coach more junior sales professionals."

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.
