If youve followed my posts you'll see I'm looking to leave my current org. Been there 5 years and where I transferred to sales (from marketing). Office culture and my passion for the product have massively tanked so it's time to move on.
One thing I'm struggling with is going nowhere with interviews with solid orgs. Essentially I'm being rejected after 1 or 2 interviews. I'm truly baffled as before I was in sales I basically always made it to the final or 2nd to last interview if I got the first. Now it seems I'm chopped liver to recruiters and hiring managers. Unless the company wants me to work for free apparently (see previous post).
I'm so baffled because I'm still crushing it at my job and closing left and right. In fact, I'm getting more complex deals since it's known I can get the harder ones to close. So it's a struggle to see I can absolutely sell like a fiend but when I sell myself it's a no go. This is my first time really interviewing for sales jobs since I transferred into the role where I'm at.
Truly at a loss and wondering if anyone has some advice out there? Maybe it's just a numbers game but it feels like maybe I'm missing the mark in my approach to interviews. I'm trying to approach interviews like I do a meeting which is, just be myself, professional, and transparent. It’s worked for me so far but not in interviews.
Thanks a ton in advance!
