"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."
Why are you considering leaving your present job?
The company where I was employed was not in a good financial place. The parent company's stock has just dropped 60% and my company had not been profitable for the last 4 years. On top of that, the online program I was selling was Java based, so it was not device agnostic. This made it very difficult to sell to many school districts. Because of the poor financial outlook, the current financial difficulties, and having too many sales reps in Texas, the smart decision would be to reduce the Texas sales force. I had been through reorganizations with McGraw-Hill and was not interested in doing that again. PresenceLearning would offer me an opportunity to work for a company with a solid financial footing, a market that is hungry for their services, and a company that is on the cutting edge of technology.
