PostSubject: Got a job pre-interview phone interview   Tue Mar 09, 2010 1:24 am

So my dad connected me with the Sales Manager at CDW Corporation. It's a $8 Billion dollar a year company and he's a pretty high up executive. Apparently my father and him are business aquantainces.

Anyway, they were discussing me one day and now I've got the opportunity to call him on Wednesday to discuss potential career opportunities in corporate sales. If the phone call goes well, I'll be invited to Chicago for a few days at the end of March to meet him personally and learn more.

I'm wicked nervous and don't want to sound like a fool to this guy. Please wish me luck! This would be like a once in a lifetime dream job for me.

Thanks! I'll keep you guys posted. Dunno if I could handle the switch to deep-dish Pizza and pickles on my hot dogs though.

no doubt, a good nights sleep will help tremendously. It's obvious you are excited about it and that will show when you talk to him.

Good luck,

Doug

lol I'm usually sober on Wednesday mornings, so that's not really a big issue. I also sleep around 12 hours a night so that's no biggie either.

Thanks for the advice guys. It really is important to me - this would be a sweet job right out of school and I could learn a lot, and earn a lot.

Tip 1: Dress for success (dress for the job you want, not the one you have)
Tip 2: Be polite and carry yourself in a professional way
Tip 3: Know as much as possible about the company (history, current practices, competitors, market position, future direction)
Tip 4: Be able to explain how your employment would benefit the company (this ties in directly with tip 3 and also shows your salesmanship)


Above all else, please oh please, when you hand in a resume with a cover letter, make sure that there are NO TYPOS. I hate seeing resumes or job descriptions that have typos. It shows a lack of caring about the position and destroys your appearence in the business world.

Of coure on here your more then welcome to typo the hekk out of eberyting Laughing

All it means is what he had going was important
Be persistent without being a PIA,
professionally smooze his secretary or whomever to get to his ear
If he dodges you repeatedly THEN thats not a good sign

You sure it isn't shmooze? I always heard it pronounced with a "sh" sound to it. Althought it may just be a regional thing.

Well I finally had a conversation with the guy a few days ago.

We spoke for about ten minutes and he seemed like a really nice guy. Anyway, the conversation included a potential salary discussion so I know that's a good sign.

The plan is to fly to Chicago on the week of my Birthday in May and spend a day looking around the facility, meeting people, and learning more about what they do.

Seems pretty promising at this point.

I'd say I'm looking forward to joining a Chicago SS club, but at this point maybe I'd better search for the local ricer crew.
