I received this amazing letter from Russ...with Career Confidential's help, he landed his dream job and boosted his salary and benefits by a total of 76%...plus bonuses!
Just a very satisfied customer here to thank you (and Carl) very much for your great help and advice at Career Confidential that has helped me land a dream regional sales job in the food industry. My new base salary is 48% higher than my current position's base, and if you count all the perks and benefits that my new job has that the old one doesn't, that's a 76% increase over my old baseline, and that's not including any of the performance based compensation (bonus, sales override, and profit sharing). The reasonable first year potential for this role is nearly three times my current compensation!
I could not have landed this job nor negotiated this compensation package without the great information and advice that I have received from Career Confidential. The 30-60-90 Day Plan, "closing for the job," and other tips that I learned from your bi-weekly calls and other materials, as well as the confidence I gained are directly responsible for this great outcome.
As a sales recruiter, I expect a certain kind of answer when I ask someone that during the initial phone interview. But in many cases, I don't get it. In the video below, I'll let you in on what recruiters and hiring managers are looking for when they ask you about your sales style.
