Recruit Great Sales People…

It’s a tough one.

When you decide to recruit and interview sales people then you need to know you’ll be dealing with the ultimate smooth operator.

The Professional Sales Interviewee

Highly credible, great communication skills, masters in the art of influence and persuasion, quick to impress, polished, well what’s not to like about these guys?

Very little phases them, let’s face it, they probably had far more interview experience that you could imagine, they’re being ‘interviewed’ every day…they know all the tricks…no wonder you offered them the job.

If you know how to recruit great sales people, I know you’ll have learnt from harsh experience…that’s sometimes really the only way.

BUT, the truth is, on the day you make the job offer, you know about your candidate only what your candidate has deemed they want you to know.

That’s one of the biggest challenges in the process to recruit great sales people.

And the Problem is…

You see,  you’ll never really know if you’ve got a super star or a dud until they’ve worked with your for a while.

Sure, you can do the psychometric tests, you can put them through an extensive recruitment process and you can engage specialist sales recruitment techniques, but at some point a decision needs to be made.

The process to recruit great sales people carries , I think, a higher risk than recruiting for most any other profession

And, like everyone else in the position of having to build the sales team, you’ll make the best decision you can, and it will be based on the information that’s available to you at the time…that’s all you can do.

Unless you have a crystal ball…and it works?

Do you?

How to Recruit Great Sales People

Often the best way to make that decision is based on gut feeling and you can console yourself with the fact that if they can impress you in a one hour long interview then they can impress your best clients and prospects too, right?

You don’t need me to tell you all that glistens isn’t gold…you know that.

There are some super sales people out there.

Professionals who are a credit to the industry, themselves and their firms. People who are highly credible, trustworthy, commercially astute and great problem solvers with a huge commitment to over delivering and ensuring delighted clients.

However, unless you have a super-robust sales recruitment and interview process, you won’t realise how great, or not, your sales recruit is until they’re been with you for a while, they’ve met your key clients, done some visits, soaked up their slice of the training budget, and taken a chunk out of your time as you can get them up to speed.

Therein lies the rub.

Now You Don’t Need To

Getting the sales candidate wrong is costly, and those costs extend well beyond the recruitment costs, salary and expenses/bonus.

It’s the opportunity cost that’s the killer, that’s just the first strike. The biggest fail is the time that’s lost.
