I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Three Ships (Raleigh, NC) in September 2010.
A gentleman from sales called me and did a first round screening. Gaging what my interests were in sales. Why I wanted to join TSM. As well as informing me that the position will be tough making 60+ dials per day trying to generate leads for the team. You need me to be enthusiastic and excited about sales and quickly show why you are a good candidate for a TSM position. "Sell yourself...otherwise no one will do it for you."
A face to face interview with three to four other members of the sales team reviewed your resume' was the next step. If the team thought you maybe a good fit then you moved to the next step. "Build rapport with team...this is a fit in or get out kind of interview." At the end of the interview you have to do a trial cold call to book a meeting given a scenario on a page (My scenario was to call a financial firm to get them to book a meeting to discuss digital marketing strategies). It is ok to struggle. This is to show that you can handle the pressure and think quick on your fit.
