Uncover Sales Candidates’ True Intentions with These Proven Behavioral Interview Techniques.

The most important decision that any business will make at any level is the selection of productive salespeople. No other position has both an opportunity for growth and potential for disaster. Most hiring managers can vividly recall a specific salesperson who looked great in the interview but never performed as expected.

Candidates can be particularly good at talking a good game . . . they know how to probe for your pain, handle objections and ask for the sale.

You might think a candidate can sell but that does not mean they will sell for you, and the distinction of can vs. will is critical.

Role plays, references and responses to hypothetical questions will tell you if the candidate can sell.  A well-constructed behavioral interview will tell you if they will sell.

Behavioral interviews get their strength from the predictive power of consistent previous behavior . . . the best predictor of future behavior.

Rather than asking how the candidate would respond in a hypothetical situation, you need to learn how they did respond to previous challenges to determine their real potential.
