    You should prepare for a sales interview in the same way you’d prepare for a sales call, Allison Nawoj, Corporate Communications Manager of CareerBuilder tells us.

    Make sure you’re familiar with the company, be confident, and have an arsenal of anecdotes about your sales achievements.
    In any sales role, you need to have an idea about retail data, trends, and sales cycles. Before your interview, look at the retail data for your industry.
    Do some background research about the specific company you’re applying to work for. Make notes of the products they promote and advertise. Try to figure out how they sell these products relative to the competition. Figure out how YOU would sell them relative to the competition.
    First impressions are everything, especially in sales. When you walk into the interview, make sure you’re well-groomed, clean-cut, and dressed appropriately.
    Be Friendly. Be Prepared To Answer Specific Questions. Don’t show the interviewer anything that your previous employer would consider confidential
    Take Notes, But Ask Permission First. Have some questions. After the interview, FOLLOW UP within 12 hours.

    All the best of luck.

    They might ask you about previous ecperience, what you can contribute and what your strengths are. It would be good to research the company, in case they ask you about it. Good uck at the interview. I believe God will help you to get a job you’ll be happy with, if you pray to Him. I believe in God, and I’m always praying to Him.

    I know We have all been in your shoes before. Job interviews can be really nerve wrecking but with practice, applying the tips below and confidence, you will excel.

    Here is an excerpt taking from an article about how to interview.

    "What is involved in preparing for an interview? You may want to research the company you hope to work for. The more you know about the company, the better the impression you will make during the interview. Your research will also help you determine whether the company really has the kind of work you want or is one you want to work for.

    Next, think about what you will wear to the interview. If the job you seek involves manual labor, wear appropriate neat, clean clothing. Neat dress and grooming tell the prospective employer that you take pride in yourself and are thus more likely to take pride in your work. If you are hoping to work in an office, choose modest clothing that is considered suitable business attire where you live. Nigel says: “Choose your clothes long before you are due to attend your interview so that you don’t feel rushed and unnecessarily increase your levels of stress prior to the interview.”

    To start off well, smile and give the interviewer a firm handshake if that is the customary greeting. During the interview, concentrate on what the employer needs from you and what you have to offer. Regarding things to avoid, Nigel says: “Don’t fidget or slouch—good posture conveys confidence. Don’t be too informal or overly talkative, and definitely do not use profanity. Also, avoid being negative about your former employers and workmates—if you are negative about them, the interviewer will likely feel you will be negative about this job too.”

    Ecclesiastes 3:13- and also that every man should eat and indeed drink and see good for all his hard work. It is the gift of God.
    ou seem like you are taking this very serious. Hope you do well!
