The Final Interview - The final step of the interview process is usually meeting with a
regional sales director or VP of sales, companies will determine who you need to meet
with during a final interview. Everything you’ve done up to this point will need to be
reviewed again and buttoned up a little bit more so you’re ready to win your job and more
importantly, win your sales career.
The big thing to keep in mind during this part of the interview process is to not get content and remember to always keep your foot on the gas. Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time has an awesome quote about winning. “I play to win, whether it’s during practice or a real game. And I will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to WIN.” As sales candidates, you can apply this same way of thinking to the final interview.

Here are some tips below for WINNING the final interview
Sometimes I’ve seen managers have a panel that includes multiple managers and a rep that might be your future co-worker that you’ll be selling the devices to. Make the presentation interactive and engaging to the panel of interviewers. Treat it like you would treat a sales call that you’ve gone on for your current position. Make sure the content is great when you present and your timing is great too, managers will respect a candidate that has a polished presentation. Remember the more prepared you are for this part of the final interview, the better of a chance you’ll give yourself to ultimately WIN the medical sales job.
