TODAY: Greatest sales person in the world

When you ask a candidate to describe their strengths you’re listening out to hear things like, ‘resourceful’ and ‘proactive’ and then for that individual to show examples of those characteristics through their work experience. However, every so often you get an individual who throws caution to the wind and who describes themselves with a one liner such as the ‘greatest sales person in the world’.  This happened to us in the office recently, and whilst we can’t help but love the comedic value of one liners such as this, on the flip side it doesn’t accurately give us an understanding of your aptitude and strengths!  Always more useful to give us something to work with..
