Sales Virtual Job Preview
The Sales Virtual Job Preview is your chance to showcase your skills, experience and what sets you apart from the rest.
The first section is a brief introduction, which won’t include questions for you to answer. However, it’s good practice to take notes in case you’re asked about any of it later on, and so you can improve your own knowledge and understanding of P&G.
You’ll then move on to six different exercises:
1 Imagining you’re a member of the sales team, you’ll have to respond to nine emails using a pool of pre-prepared responses, out of which you’ll select the ones you’d be ‘most’ and ‘least’ likely to use. Practising situational judgement tests will help you improve at this.
2 Still imagining you’re in the sales team, you’ll now be required to answer eight numerical questions (essentially a mini numerical reasoning test).
3 Exercise three is about prioritisation. You’ll be given a schedule that requires you to prioritise two sets of four tasks, based on their significance and how quickly you think you’d complete them. Again, it’s important to think like a member of the sales team here, to answer the questions most effectively.
4 Next, 25 quick questions that start, ‘I prefer a job where…’ followed by two possible answers. This helps build a clearer picture of you as an individual and how you’re likely to fit into the team. Prepare by thinking about the type of person P&G is likely to want to hire based on their core values and ethics, as well as the requirements of the role you’re applying for.
5 Then, 23 questions designed to find out more about you: your background, experience and work history. In this section, ensure everything you write is accurate.
6 Finally, you’ll need to answer 23 questions on your preferred working style. Ensure you’re honest, as your answers should be reflective of what you’ve said about yourself elsewhere.
Although untimed, the Sales Virtual Job Preview normally takes around an hour to complete (occasionally this section is replaced with a video interview, but this is unlikely).
The interview stage is your final chance to demonstrate your skills, enthusiasm and passion for the role and becoming a part of P&G.
The panel will ask you several competency-based questions. Try to sell everything that makes you qualified and unique, while relating the questions back to the role you’re applying for, so the panel can see the relevance of your answer.
Prepare by looking at common interview questions, practising your interview techniques, doing some in-depth research into P&G and the role you’re applying for. And most importantly, be confident in your skills and abilities.
