How to Identify who is the right sales candidate?

Peter Heredia, managing director of MaxSales Solutions, introduced us to some very unique techniques when interviewing sales candidates. He gave us an in-depth presentation about the differences between competencies and behaviors, especially when establishing performance criteria for sales employees. Peter shared the below list of questions as a good example of situation-based questioning.

Think about the last time you went for a meeting with a potential client you had never met before:

  • Tell me how you started the meeting
  • What happened next?
  • What did you say next?
  • Can you give me a sample of questions you asked?

Departing from the “standard” process of interviewing, Peter also shared with us a few interview tips:

  • If you are looking for a good listener, ask double-barreled questions and ensure they answer both of them
  • If you are looking for a Closer, leave the interview by simply saying “Thanks for coming in” and see if they push you for next steps
  • If you want reliability, make sure they are ahead of time for the meeting
