What is the best answer for - Sell me this pen question during Interview.
Asked In: Interview Questions
Firstly, ask them the reason for utilising the pen. You will have to be creative with this answer. This question is asked to check your selling skills and is also a skill assessment test for the sales role. If you can sell anything, you are considered to be a good salesman.
Begin the answer with “I would need to know a little more about you. Would you mind if I ask you a few questions first?” And move on to questions such as “What is important to you when selecting a pen?” “What do you usually write with?”, etc.
For more seasoned sales professionals, the interviewer may skip the fun and games with the pen and jump straight to asking you how you would approach selling the company’s products or services. Do your pre-interview homework so that you’ll be able to speak intelligently about the products/services and their benefits.
