You’re face to face with the interviewer who says, “Sell me this stapler.”
Something like that has probably happened to every person who ever began a career in sales. You either love that question or hate it. Most over achieving sales professionals thrive, because to them it’s about identifying the need and the art of persuasion. In other words, the most effective route to getting a “Yes.” Sell you this stapler? Sure.
