WHY A SALES REPRESENTATIVE IS HIGHLY SOUGHT FOR IN NIGERIA

WHY A SALES REPRESENTATIVE JOB IS ON HIGH DEMAND IN NIGERIA

A sales representative is one who represents the company by negotiating on behalf of the company. He helps in promoting and selling the company’s goods and services to businesses, organizations, government agencies, etc. A sales representative is very critical to an organization as he promotes and markets the products for them. He is the intermediary between the manufacturer or wholesaler and the final consumer.

For an organization to sell its products or render its services, the buyer needs to be convinced of the authenticity or reliability of that product. Hence the need to hire a sales representative to bridge the gap between the organization and the buyer.

Here are some of the reasons a sales representative is highly sought for in Nigeria:

For Feedback:

 After writing an examination, we often wait in ease or tension for the results to be released. We all want to know how we fared in the exam. Getting a feedback from consumers helps the company know how it is faring and helps increase its performance.

To Develop Relationships:

A relationship is a key aspect of selling a product. You can’t sell a product to someone you have no relationship with. Sales representatives make contacts with the consumers of the company’s product to sell a product to them.

For improvement:

A negative feedback gotten from the consumers of the company’s product could help them correct their mistakes. This will invariably improve the company’s products and services. This is very important to an organization because, the more improved your products are, the more sales you are likely to make.

A sales representative’s importance cannot be over emphasized as they help in generating feedback for improvements on the company’s product. They work with customers to find out what they want, create solutions and make sure the process is smooth.

WHY DIDN’T I GET THE JOB?

WHY DIDN’T I GET THE JOB?

If you didn’t get a job you applied for or even interviewed for, it doesn’t mean you did a bad job at the interview. It doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. It doesn’t mean you never get anything right. It doesn’t even mean that someone else was better-suited to the job than you were.

You may have been extra prepared for the interview hoping you’d get the job. But in the end, you get a reply saying, “you did great, but we want something different”.

Frustrating isn’t it? Here are some of the reasons you didn’t make it past the interview stage. This could help you become better and careful in your next job pursuit.

Improper Dressing:

The first thing your interviewer notices when you walk in for the interview is your dressing. If you’re improperly dressed, even after being interviewed, you are unlikely to get the job.

Manner Of Approach:

 That the security at the gate or the receptionist isn’t a match to you shouldn’t make you disrespect him. Being polite to everyone not minding their position is a key to getting past the interview stage.

They didn’t like you:

You probably didn’t get that job not because you didn’t do well, but because the interviewer didn’t like you. Being in a place you aren’t liked isn’t a good thing for you, you’d definitely get somewhere else that you’d be cherished.

Too attractive:

Looking good for an interview is good, but going the extra mile and looking like a model could cost you the job. This is because the interviewers may feel you could be a source of distraction to other employees in the office.

Knowing too much:

Yes, an employer wants to hire someone who is good at what he does, but they also get scared when they feel you are too good. They may feel you will outsmart them eventually if you get hired.

Not getting a job you applied for, despite adequate preparations could be quite disheartening. But you must understand that not every job or organization deserves you. Work on yourself, become better and try somewhere else.

Good luck!

SURVIVING AN INTERVIEW LOSS

Surviving An Interview Loss

If you’ve ever lost a job at the interview stage, you will admit that it is just as synonymous to experiencing a  relationship heartbreak. You must have prepared really hard for the interview, read over night, researched about the company, studied interview questions, etc. Expecting to move on,  you are told you didn’t make it to the next stage. Devastating as it is, waking up to the reality and moving on will definitely make you heal faster.

Here are a few tips on how to survive an interview loss:

  1. Accept the loss:

    accepting that you lost the interview is the first step to getting healed of an interview ‘heartbreak”.  The earlier you accept and decide to move on, the better your chances of getting healed.

  2. Take it as an experience:

    Nothing we pass through in life is by accident. It happened for a reason, probably to prepare you for a greater function.

  3. Learn the lesson:

    find out what made you lose that job. It could be your over-assertiveness, fearfulness, shyness or even your stubbornness. Find out, and make plans to change and do it right next time.

  4. Don’t give up:

    that you lost a job at the interview stage is not enough reason to give up trying. Remember, quitters never win. So if you’re willing to get that dream job of yours, don’t give up yet.

  5. Try again:

    it is always wise to try again after a failed job interview. Apply at other openings and keep attending the interviews.

  6. Keep trying:

     until you achieve your aim of getting that job, you must keep trying. Even if you fail again, keep trying and in no time, your desired job will be yours.
