18 Share Market Questions and Answers:

1 :: any questions?

The best questions to ask are those that you really would like to know the answer to, rather than those you can find in books on interview skills. If you research the company well enough, you will find a number of questions naturally arising that you wish to be answered.

You should, though, concentrate on questions that show your interest in, and motivation to do, the job itself, rather than the rewards it will bring. So, for example, you should ask about training and career progression in preference to pay and pensions! Other questions you could consider asking include:
* What do people enjoy most in working for the company?
* How many exhibitions does the company undertake each year
* How realistic are early promotion prospects if I am successful?
* What plans do you have for the future in terms of new markets/products?
* Do you run any competitions or sales incentives?

2 :: Show some example that how you convinced someone to do something that they were not too keen on doing?

Influencing the behavior and even attitudes of others is central to marketing work.

Consider situations in which your ideas were obviously better than others. Of particular relevance are occasions when you influenced someone's spending habits. For example, deciding on a holiday to undertake, or perhaps the purchase of an expensive item such as a car or a house. Equally, it could be that you convinced someone to do something which they initially had severe doubts about.

Talk about the methods you have used to convince someone as well as how persistent you needed to be. Are you better face-to-face or on the phone? Would you be as effective if you tried to do it in writing? Are some people easier to influence than others? Is so why is that the case? How could you apply this to your working life? Show that you enjoy influencing other people as well as being good at it.

3 :: Tell me how does the prospect of traveling a good deal grab you?

Very well is the easy answer, but you must do your research. Not all marketing jobs involve travel, although most do. Be certain about the requirements of the firm interviewing you. You probably wouldn't have applied to a job requiring travel unless you relished the prospect!

You should attempt to demonstrate any of the following in order to suggest that working away from home suits you:

* You have done it before, successfully.
* It is a challenge you are prepared to accept.
* You enjoy getting out and about and seeing pastures new.
* It will allow you to use your social skills with a wide range of clients.
* Being mobile adds an extra dimension to the work which you will enjoy.

4 :: Tell me what do you realistically believe to be your earning potential?

You should avoid discussing your salary at interview - so conventional interview wisdom goes! In this context, however, the question may be about a rather different issue. Many marketing jobs have the potential for staff to earn bonuses or indeed be on a contract where their salary is only a proportion of their potential earnings.

This question also suggests the future. What are your earnings likely to be in the next five, ten, even fifteen years?

You should relate your earning potential to your ability to do the job. By arguing that you hope to take every opportunity that comes your way, work hard, put in the hours required and generally get stuck in you will show that you are keen to earn as much as possible.

7 :: Tell me have you applied to any other areas apart from marketing?

If the answer is yes (and it is quite reasonable for it to be so!) then have a reason for your interest in the other areas. Some other occupations are obviously related, such as Sales, Market Research, Advertising, Promotional work, Public Relations etc.

Show that there are common skills between the other occupations and Marketing. Alternatively demonstrate that the attraction is different and perhaps of a lesser degree than Marketing. Show that the job in question attracts you the most and that there is no sense of you being inconsistent in your applications. The other companies you have applied to will interest your interviewer. Let them see that you have researched the field well. But make sure that they know they are the first choice. You do not want to put them off!
