Sales Hiring Solutions

The growth of your company depends on the quality of your sales talent. Finding top sales talent can be hard. We make it simple.

Sales roles rank as the third most difficult positions to fill according to Manpower, and that’s in a stable economy.

Your sales team is the face of your company, empowers your brand to attract new customers, and positions you to build your market share. Successful sales team members are always in high demand, and relying on the same old hiring strategies is not going to earn you best-fit candidates.

What are you doing to attract top sales talent to give your organization a competitive edge? Do you have evidence your hiring decisions result in on-the-job success?

With Modern Hire’s Sales Hiring Blueprints, you do.

Sales Hiring Blueprints

Powered by CognitIOn by Modern Hire, Sales Hiring Blueprints are recommended workflows built around scientifically validated, job-specific assessment and interview content to engage and screen, assess and interview, and evaluate and hire your top talent.

These hiring plans are based on evidence from decades of creating hiring tools across a variety of roles and industries. Hiring Blueprints offer a combined assessment and interview experience that measures the competencies we have identified as predictive of success in sales roles, including:

  • Sales B2B
  • Sales B2C
  • Sales Manager

Each role has a recommended workflow comprising some combination of three or more of the following stages:

  • On-demand text or phone screen
  • On-demand realistic job preview
  • On-demand job-specific Virtual Job Tryout™ assessment
  • On-demand video interview
  • Live phone interview
  • Live face-to-face interview

Modern Hire’s Sales Hiring Blueprints are recommended workflows, but can be configured to meet your unique needs.
