Role Play Job Interview Questions With a Career Coach

Role Play Job Interview Questions With a Career Coach

You know the drill for medical sales job interviews:  research, prepare, and be ready for the toughest interview questions.

There are some job interview questions for health care sales jobs that inevitably trip candidates up.  “What’s your greatest weakness?”  is a famous one.   The typical advice you’ll usually find is to prepare for the interview by practicing your answers, and role-play it with a friend (if you’re really serious).

Preparation is key to landing any job in medical device, laboratory sales, or pharmaceutical sales; and role-playing your interview answers is going to do nothing but help you.  That’s the truth.

Having said that, I want to suggest that you kick it up a notch:  hire a career coach to role play job interview questions with you.

Think of it this way:  You will get better at your golf game by going to the driving range or playing a few holes with your buddies–your skills will improve over time with practice and the competition from your friends.   But if you were really serious about improving your swing or wanted to get Phil Mickelson good, you’d find a coach.

So how serious are you about your job search?

A coach can help you

construct answers that sell you as a candidate for the most common interview questions as well as the toughest ones.
take your personal history into account so that you don’t answer standard interview questions with the same standard answers everyone else gives–you’ll be memorable.
practice closing the deal (many candidates find this difficult to master–but it’s vital).

Think about hiring a career coach before you go to your next interview.  Seriously.

Should You Hire An Interview Coach?

Should You Hire An Interview Coach?

There’s tremendous amounts of advice you can find in books and online for how to answer job interview questions, and some of it says to practice your interview answers with a friend, or video yourself so that you can play it back to see your weak spots.  It’s good advice.  It’s always harder to critique ourselves constructively, and you need both practice and feedback to improve your game.  The flaws in these particular plans are (1) a friend might just tell you what you want to hear, and (2) if you’re critiquing a video of yourself, the problem becomes “you don’t know what you don’t know”.

Here’s a thought:  If you really want to improve your skills in something, you take lessons from an expert…in other words, get a coach.

Think about it.  Even pro athletes, with amazing natural abilities and countless hours of practice, have coaches and trainers to give them that one last boost over the top to excellence.

Role-playing interviews with an objective, experienced industry expert can give you so much of a boost in your interview skills that you not only do well in the interview, you crush it….just blow the hiring manager out of the water with your confidence, competence and style.  An interview coach can not only help you shape your answers to interview questions, she can help you spin difficult situations into positives (or at least neutrals), and can help you pinpoint and develop those intangible qualities that are ultimately job-winners.

I do provide interview help for candidates in sales and medical sales, and maybe I’d be a good fit for you–and maybe not.  Either way, it’s still a good idea for you to get some outside help in this competitive job market, and I believe that it’s even more critical for entry-level candidates, who have the “lack of experience” issue working against them.

Find someone who is an expert in your field that you are comfortable working with.  Hiring an interview coach is a small investment in yourself that will pay off big for you when you land the job of your dreams.
