"When hiring account executives, employers are looking for candidates with the communication and sales skills to find and acquire new clients. In an interview, be ready to discuss your experience sourcing new business opportunities, familiarity with sales strategies, and ability to close deals with clients."
Do you mind making cold calls? Do you think you would have an issue making 80+ outbound phone calls a day? what motivates you? (they want to hear money)
I answered that I do not mind making phone calls, it is a major part of any sales position. They mostly want to hear that you are self motivated and willing to put in the work. They are looking to see if you would be a good cultural fit with the rest of the team.
