Talented salespeople promote your products and services to bring money into the business. Marketers craft compelling stories about your company’s products and the organization and draw the best potential customers to your sales team.
However, sales and marketing people are notoriously fickle when picking a company to work with. As a result, these jobs can be the most difficult to fill.
Sales and marketing professionals have a unique mix of expertise and personal qualities that makes them a bit special. It is critical your company understands these peculiarities and develops a strategy to find, engage and recruit the best talent available.
Sales and marketing professionals like competitive pay at a company that fits their goals and personality. Recent surveys show that close to 70% are looking for a new job at any given time. Top marketing and sales talent thrive in environments that let them contribute, evolve, and grow.
Marketing and sales staff like to be mentored, challenged and recognized for a job well done. They value well-structured professional development and training. They want to continually improve their skills and value constructive feedback. They are more likely to remain with a company if they feel it has invested in them. Top talent in these fields also tends to favor flexible schedules and often, hybrid or remote work.
Having top-level marketing and sales staff can mean the difference between failure and success, and so the hiring process can be daunting. Marketing and sales candidates usually field several interviews at once, and there are currently more jobs available than candidates. Hiring managers must be as prepared as possible to attract and keep the best talent.
