In Donald Kelly, Job Interview, Networking, Sales Training

Donald KellyDuring this episode I answer a question frequently proposed to me by our listeners.They’re looking for sales job or preparing for an interview. Many folks ask how can I best prepare for an interview.

Here are some of the things that I recommend:

  • Before the interview, find an insider in the company who can get you in contact with the right people and recommend you to those making the decision.
  • Research as much as possible about the company prior to the  interview.
  • Take advantage of tools such as Google Alerts that can gather information about the organization for you.
  • Prepare your resume based on what you learn from your insider and the objective of the position you’re applying for.
  • Prepare your resume in a way that it tells a story with each bullet point. Make sure to utilize numbers and percentages to assist with the story telling.
  • Utilize the Refresh app and LinkedIn to learn about those doing the interview.
  • Dress for success and maintain strong confidence in your ability to fulfill the objectives of the role (not arrogance, confidence).
  • Be as human as possible and connect with those you are meeting with. (Utilize the Refresh app)
  • Ask intuitive questions about the organization based on your research.
  • Learn their hiring process.
  • Find out what are the next steps.
  • Ask for the job!
