Interview Questions


Q1. What motivates you?

I challenge myself with achievements at both personal and career levels. This is the main factor that attracted me to the sales career. The fact that I will face different clients every day, and have to deal with all their queries on the products that I sale motivates me to keep in touch with all the company’s products, including those made by the competitors. This gives me the confidence of facing any customer as I feel prepared and ready for the job.
