"When interviewing for an account owner position, be prepared to speak to your skills in communications, marketing, and client relations. Employers will be interested in your ability to create long lasting relationships with clients and generate sales for a portfolio of accounts. Your interviewer may test your abilities with a role play question, so be prepared to give a mock sales pitch to a difficult client."
The first question Nathan asked me when we met was "What kind of work are you looking for at the moment?"
I responded by stating I applied for the Account Manager position. He smiled and said "I know that. What I don't know is what type of work you were looking for when you applied to our company." He apparently wanted me to talk more about my overall job search than why I applied to the position.
