"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."
Last interviewer said I had been doing very, very well and asked me why Microsoft shouldn't hire me.
Turned the question back into a question for the interviewer, and gave no reasons not to hire me.
Its a good answer, however, it could go against you. I think the best way to answer is that you summarize your strengths in few words first and then ask them " With all due respect, can I ask you a question? And with their permission ask them very politely if there would be any reason why they should not hire you."
Hi! I was recently offered a job at Microsoft (late 2017) and having suffered from lack of proper up-to date interview prep materials, I created an "interview preparation guide" that has all the questions I’ve been asked and more. I think it will be very useful to people who are interviewing at Microsoft for various roles. You can buy the guide from here: https://interviewjoy.com/services/interview-process-details/microsoft-program-product-manager-interview-questions-answers-details/ The book has a lot of positive reviews/feedback already so please check out the feedback at the bottom of the page. (People are commenting that the guide made a big difference for them!). Cheers, Ryan
