software sales recruiting | Get the edge you need to win
It’s no secret that recruiting sales talent is a is a challenge.
If you’ve gone through the interview process with multiple candidates and have finally winnowed it down to one final choice, it’s painful when your finalist turns down your job offer.
If you’re working hard to recruit the top 20%, this will happen.
It’s not only acceptable but inevitable. Part of recruiting the best is getting turned down.
Recruiting top sales talent is always competitive. They have lots of choices. But it shouldn’t happen too often because it burns through too many resources and takes too much time.
Are you still recruiting salespeople like it’s 2009? One might argue that 2018 is the hottest job market since the year 2000. Consider this:
In 1999 the Labor Department reported the real median household income at $58,665.
As of July 2018 the Labor Department reported the real median household income at $62,175.
Family income has risen by 5% in the first half of 2018 and by 17% since 2012.
Have you ever found working with a recruiter a frustrating experience? If you have, you are not alone. Hiring managers can become frustrated with their recruiters and let’s face it, the entire recruitment process, when they don’t see the level of sales talent they need to be successful.
Every top salesperson will eventually quit. What’s even more painful is the best leave when they are on top, so if you’re not careful, you may not even see it coming. As the job market tightens, sales professionals have more and more lucrative and exciting job opportunities vying for their attention.

He went for an interview and was expecting to discuss an offer
