    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at JDSU in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Using a recruiter, I got to meet with the Sales Manager for a face to face interview. They have your resume on hand for reference, so it's really your personality that can set you apart from the rest. Be excited (don't fake it), show you really are interested in sales.
