Daily Job Search Tip: The Car Salesman Guide to Job Searching

March 24th, 2011 | Job Search | No Comments »


Being a job seeker is like being a salesman. You’re selling yourself to the best customer you can find: your dream employer. This is something to remember during every aspect of your job search. Your resume is your specs list and the interview is your dynamic sales pitch. Don’t be the used car salesman or the pithy door-to-door salesman.

Be your own salesman of the year and sell yourself to the best of your ability. Be confident and positive, treating each question as another opportunity to explain the most important parts of the product that is you! Be persuasive yet personable and honest. And remember that no salesman sells without asking for the sale; make sure you ask about the next step in the interview process!
