We need to make a decision on who we are going to hire for the
new salesperson position.
I know. There are a lot of good applicants. So far we have
interviewed 10 people and have looked at over 50 resumes.
Well, let’s take a look at some of the best and make a decision.
Ok, the first person is Phil. He has worked as a salesperson for
10 years in both The United States and Canada. Also, he has
been the manager of the sales department of a large auto-parts
Sounds interesting, but has he ever worked in the food sales
No he hasn’t.
That might be a problem; we need someone with food
OK, what about Karen? She has worked in the food industry for
6 years. She has been a manager of a major supermarket and
worked in marketing for a large meat company.
OK. Has she worked in international sales before?
No, she has never worked in international sales.
Well, that could be a problem. This job will require a lot of
international experience. I think we need someone who has
worked in an international environment
Well what about Larry? We haven’t met him yet but his resume
looks good. He has been a salesperson in the food industry for
13 years. He has lived in The United States, Canada and
Mexico. In the past 4 years he has learned how to speak
Spanish and French.
Wow, sounds great!
The problem is we still haven’t had an interview with him.
Well, let’s get him in here and see what he has to say!
