Had an phone interview… the women on the phone ask about my selling experience. Been in retail banking for over 4 years. Than she told me that I don’t have sales experience. So offer products and services.. that’s not selling?

No, because they come to you with a need. You aren’t generating interest in your product.


True. But half the time you can uncover a need and make it beneficial for them as well.

Probably not analogous for the type of selling they need to do. And if they don’t have the resources (or time) to train you on “their way” then it makes sense to go with a candidate with more directly relatable experience.


I didn’t even think about it like that. Very vailed point.

Didn’t she see your resume before the interview?

Glad I’m not the only one that think that.
