Would You Hire the New College Grad?

02.22.10   |   Sales Recruiting   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

The BEST sales person I ever hired came directly out of college. He has now gone onto several much larger sales management roles in a very large company selling and managing to very large accounts, with much success. At the time, I was managing a B2B effort in the SMB space for a large company. Our stringent requirements were 3+ years of sales success in the B2B space, but management was open-minded and encouraged all sorts of recruiting channels.

Why Join LinkedIn?

02.17.10   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

Recently I sat with a great candidate to discuss his job search. We had talked about the different resources he could utilize to conduct an effective search and to my surprise I found that my candidate was not a member of LinkedIn.

Then I realized that he was averse to joining LinkedIn due to the fact that he had a misunderstanding of what LinkedIn is. He was under the impression that it was just another social site like Facebook. I spoke with him in depth about why he should join LinkedIn and shared with him how I utilize the site as a recruiter. It is one of the sites I use on a daily basis to find candidates and prospects and I think anyone who is not utilizing LinkedIn is doing themselves a major disservice.

I have been an executive recruiter for the past 5 years and throughout my tenure in this profession I have heard a plethora of excuses as to why a candidate cannot attend an interview. Often times, the cancellation comes the day of the interview, leaving recruiters like myself to scramble and put out the fire with our clients. There have been instances where a candidate has to cancel an interview for reasons to do with their current job: surprise visit from a client, unexpected ride day with the boss, etc.

What do you do when the last job on your resume ended a year ago? What do you do when you are applying for a job and the interviewer asks, "What have you been doing most recently?" and all you can think of is, "I have been looking for a job." Unfortunately, in this market, this is a regular occurrence in interviews.

01.22.10   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

Goals are set to encourage you to stretch beyond what is within your easy reach. One large caution for Sales Managers this year: do not allow your team to use 2009 as a benchmark for 2010's achievement. As a Sales Manager, now is the time to recreate the vision. Now is the time to redefine success from a clean slate. The most successful sales professionals have heard the mantra, "Belief, Action, Results, and Motivation."
