Job Interview Tips 1 - You're Hired
The man said Brian
You what？ What do you mean？You've lost the dolama contract? Oh, Brian, tell me you are joking. That's our biggest contract, and you've lost it. OK. OK. Yes, I know you've had some personal problems recently. Yes,sure. Yes, I know our competitors improved their offer, but really, Brian, these are really just excuses. Oh, Brian, come on. You fail to meet a great target for the entire last quarter. We talked about this in your last performance review, and I told you then, you had to improve. And to be quite honest, it hasn't. Listen,the dolama contract is the last straw. I'm sorry, Brian. That's it. This is your last chance. I'm gonna have to let you go. Let you go. Yes. That's what it means, Brian. You are fired. Hi, Jess. Could you put me through Marcia, please? Thank you. Hi, Hasian Philippa. Listen, I have to let Brian go. He lost the dolama account.Yeah. It had been going on for a while. He just wan't pleased to wait any more. He 'd been warned. His last performance review is really bad. He knew it was coming. So we'll be looking for someone new and we'll need to decide on who that is. Who are we looking for? Good question. I was hoping you might be able to help me with that. Here's what I'm thinking and let me know if you agree. Well, obviously, they only need to have a first degree. Doesn't matter what subjects, any Masters or MBA, I'd say. Experience? At least five years relevant experience of an international company. I want somebody with a proven track record. Oh, they have to be a team player. Brian never was, so strong into personal sales. Oh, and I want someone with vision. Yes, vision. Why? I know it's difficult to define. What I mean is, someone who knows a rapidly changing market and they can use it to our advantage. Experience is all lined with sales. I'll be interested in that. Oh, language skills. I can't emphasize that enough. Not necessarily a native speaker. But they must be very good at English and another language as well. Spanish? Mandarin is best. Jasondawn Katsy? Great. OK. Can you get her down a website as soon as possible? Oh, and the trade press as well. OK. Great. Thanks,Marcia. I want a new sales director by the end of the month. Bye.
