4 Tips to Ace Your Roofing Sales Job Interview
If you’re passionate about sales, the roofing industry can hold some serious earning potential. From being a sales representative to becoming a business development manager, the harder you work, the higher your earnings could be.
To ace your roofing sales job interview and career, follow these four tips from industry experts.
Tip #1: Understand the Position
While this may seem obvious, understanding the position is essential before an interview. It also gives you an opportunity to gather any questions you may have about the role. A roofing sales representative job description generally includes generating leads through direct selling tactics and converting them into appointments for business development managers.
Tip #2: Know the Responsibilities of the Role
As a sales representative, you will be the first point of contact a potential client has with the company. This means you’ll be making prospective calls and deciding who is best worth the business manager’s time. Having a thorough understanding of the company’s products and services, industry, and client needs will be essential for the role and will demonstrate your knowledge during an interview.
Tip #3: Sharpen Your Skills
While the most notable skill in a sales representative role is communication, there are a few technical skills you can sharpen that will surely come up during an interview. Being proficient in Microsoft Office, CRM software, and a prospecting application (such as LinkedIn Sales Navigator) are standard requirements. If you’re inexperienced in one of these, or it’s been a few years since you’ve used one, take the time before your interview to practice.
Tip #4: Research the Roofing Company
One of the most common interview questions is, “Why do you want to work for our company?” Doing some research about the company, reading their website, and looking through their social media will give you a good idea about their culture and environment. It can also tell you about the benefits they offer their employees.
