Tolles Team, nette hilfsbereite Kollegen. Aufgaben anspruchsvoll und stets eine Herausforderung. International aufgestellt mit Austausch unter den Ländern.
Amerikanische Politik machte das deutsche Business kaputt. Zu viel Focus auf Sales als auf Weiterentwicklung der Produkte.
Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei CareerBuilder.
A recruitment company contacted me in regards to the position at CareerBuilder. My CV was sent and I received a reply informing me that I was unsuccessful. I then contacted my network and was able to change the outcome to a positive outcome. Short after that I had a 1h call with the managing Director in Germany. Next I was invited to their head quarters in Munich for a face to face Interview. I met first with the managing director and then with a person in sales.
In regards to the process and the expectations, well I am not sure if they really know what they are looking for. They were very quick to assume things without really asking me for my opinion.
1. That I am more suitable for a managing position and over qualified for a sales or Account managing position (I like sales and don't really see my self as a manger, at least at the moment).
2. That I might not feel comfortable with cold calling and building my pipeline. (Although this is a common process in sales and part of every sales job).
Most disturbing were their answers in regards to the Sales process and their current sales opportunities.
1. A typical sales cycle for them is 12 months for a simple recruiting tool.
2. 50 generated opportunities within 3 months (out of experience I can only assume that half of these are a wast of time, meaning there are no set criteria such as decision maker, project or a budget)
