    Interview

    Create a relationship with your interviewer. Arrive early, with your preparation to ace the interview. Ensure you have sufficient knowledge of the products and enforce how you’ll be able to create relationships with customers. Understand that even practicing what you’ll say in advance will have little to none support in your interview. However, consider all your experiences and the skills you attained by pursuing them. Show them you have the experience they need, stay bubbly. Show you’re passionate because that is what will set you apart from other candidates. Be true to yourself, and answer questions without a notion of cliche. Most of all, if you’ve got to the interview stage, it’s because they like you already and now they want to see that in person. So make them believe you!

    Interview Questions

    • What are your 3 key skills?
      How would you hit sales targets if there aren’t many customers near the outlet? (Tip is what extra will you do?) - Show the things you would go out your way to do.
