This was one of the more difficult questions asked, for I do not have a lot of experience in sales jobs. However, having helped my family build and create a business from the start, marketing and sales tactics were necessary in gaining loyal clientele in order to operate the business. With that being said, I was not unfamiliar with the idea of collaborative selling, and was able to explain various situations when collaboration was necessary in order to maintain business in the long term.
I reminded them about the economy and mentioned that I was not alone in the fact that hardly anyone was able to obtain employment due to all the unemployed people in US today.
Thank you for the laugh today...what a question to ask with today's economy. It's just not the way it used to be. I have been on the hunt for months.
It's very difficult to find a good job that pays reasonable in today's economy. Seems companies want double the requirements for the job, yet are offering half the pay they offered 10 years ago. So it has taken a while to find a company willing to pay a good salary for my experience.
