Need interviews? Want to get better at interviewing?-Emily (part two)
What is Emily's secret weapon to get hired? Does she have a silver bullet? Not really, but she is focusing her energy and enthusiasm on all the things that she can control! To get interviews she is doing tons of follow up and talking to anyone she can! I ask her," How are you overcoming the lack of medical sales experience?" Her answer was to get in the right mindset by gaining confidence in the interview rather getting discouraged! That led to a great talk about playing the numbers game when it comes to interviewing and how it can be a huge confidence booster! What is the biggest mistake we all tend to make? We stop doing the things that are working and then our progress stops.

What are the best parts of your story?- Emily
People buy or hire people they like and your story will help them to like you. I suggest if you are networking to get interviews or if you have an interview, practice sharing your top three qualities. Don't wait and stumble when you are asked, "tell me about yourself and why medical sales?" Come up with specific examples that are relevant and create some emotional bonding so people are more drawn to you! Have no doubts when the interview is over that you we were persuasive and likeable! Practice so it flows with confidence!

How much time should I allow to close the interview?- Michelle Chauvin
If you don't close a sales interview you will never get hired. Reverse engineer the interview making time to set up the close and give it the time and attention required. There is a good chance you are interviewing with sales people so they expect you to make a strong and persuasive close. Time clock for interview: 10 minutes intro/bonding 10 minutes questions/answers and 10 minutes trial close/hard close
