How to prepare for an interview with the employer for the position of sales assistant
Who is the sales consultant. Collection of information about the vacancy
A sales consultant is a kind of magic wand for a buyer who is lost in the abundance of goods and services. Live advertising of a product.
Therefore, the first step to the perfect interview is the study of the products and services provided by the company-employer. Visit the website of a potential employer, read reviews about the company. Feel free to ask acquaintances whether they used such services or goods. You can buy some products for yourself to appreciate its quality.
At the interview, mention that you used the services or products of this company, and correctly tell the pros and cons of a particular service / product at your discretion.
Presentation of the appearance
The seller-consultant must have a flawless appearance. Most consultants wear uniforms with their company logo. Show off your sense of style and respect to clothing, appearing for the interview in a clean pressed business suit. It could be a white shirt with a MIDI skirt (knee length, short is considered bad manners), and jacket with pants.
The tone of official clothing does not involve catchy shades, so choose a calm pastel tone. Matt blue, beige or light gray.
The same applies to jewelry. It is undesirable to abuse the number of rings and bracelets, as well as the length of the earrings. Ideal modest ornaments of gold or silver. To describe you as punctual and stylish, a person will watch. Choose a model without rhinestones and frivolous hearts on the bracelet.
For any employer in addition to clothing, an important component of a good employee is grooming. Clean skin of the face, neat nails, stylish hairstyle.
It is considered to be that if a person neatly relates to his appearance, then he is also collected and careful in his work. It is a pleasure to work with such a person.
Speech as the main tool of the sales assistant
The seller-consultant during his work has to talk a lot, explaining to the buyer the quality and functions of a particular product, etc.
Preparing for the interview, listen to his speech. Try to tell something about the tube of toothpaste, for example. Record yourself on video. It should be clear and meaningful. Avoid words-parasites and stretching breaks ("it's like", "Ah", "uh-uh", etc.).
Learn to speak clearly by using tongue twisters. In Soviet times, people practiced the speech, pronouncing words with walnuts in his mouth. You need to put in each cheek in the nuts and say as long as the words do not acquire a distinct sound. Try also to read aloud some poem.
At the interview, try to speak confidently. Look directly at the employer, not at the floor or ceiling. A welcoming smile is welcome, but without familiarity.
Stay relaxed, but not sloppily. Stick to open postures and gestures. Look at the leading weather forecast and try to use the same gestures — the location of the elbows at some distance from the body, calm the movement of your palms, smooth movement of the housing etc.
Not superfluous in the interview will be your positive attitude. Each successful outcome, imagine is already work in the selected company. Stay with dignity, and you will want to cooperate in the future.
