How to get what you’re worth

Thanks again for signing up for the Sales Pro Blog Newsletter. I’m still working on this page so I apologize if it is a little bare right now.

I remember my first interview. It was for a lifeguard position at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in Southern California. It was with a corporate recruiter who was clearly sick of “interviewing” 16 year old teenagers. Looking back now, I can understand why. I had no idea what I was doing. The only thing on my mind at the time was the paycheck and the bathing suits I’d be seeing, no joke.

I had no idea about interviewing etiquette, how to dress, how to highlight my strengths and explain my weaknesses. I was a complete newbie and have no idea how I got that first job (I was a good swimmer….?).

A lot’s changed since that summer day. I’ve interviewed and been interviewed dozens and dozens of times since then while also building my skills as a sales person and business professional.

The skills required to be an effective interviewer are not rocket science. They also aren’t trade secrets. They are common sense skills that anyone can learn given the proper instruction. And that’s where I come in.

What To Expect

Interviewing is as much an art as it is a science. It is both a mental and physical game where all of your strengths and weaknesses are pooled in every interaction. That’s why its important to understand both sides of the interview, where you stand and where they, as the interviewer, does.

The fact that you’re on this page means you want a little extra help and guidance when it comes to interviewing and selling your brand to a potential employer. Whether you’ve been out of work for years, are returning from a leave of absence, or just want some help as you look for a new career, I’ll provide actionable tips and tricks to help you out.

In the upcoming emails you’ll receive, I’ll provide you with expert tips to help you:

  • Feel confident in yourself during an interview
  • Prepare for an interview
  • Follow up after an interview
  • Differentiate yourself from every other candidate
  • Deliver an effective message and pitch
  • Sell your strengths and weaknesses effectively
  • Ask for the job
  • Negotiate for the salary you deserve
  • And other valuable tips and tricks to make your next interview a success.

Again, I will do my absolute best to provide you with only valuable information but if you are ever unsatisfied with this newsletter, or feel I’m getting off track I want you to reach out to me right away. I encourage it.
