Successful salespeople often share similar characteristics

Successful salespeople often share similar characteristics  While every salesperson has his or her own unique personality, there are a few qualities these individuals tend to have in common. According to Success magazine, these professionals are often confident, driven, assertive and outgoing.

CBS MoneyWatch recently highlighted three other qualities that employers should be on the lookout for in prospective salespeople. The first characteristic that can help salespeople succeed is a willingness to learn. While existing knowledge and professional accomplishments are important, so too is an employee’s ability to continue to perform while adapting to new circumstances.

The second quality highlighted by the news source was dependability, as employers need to know that their salespeople will make showing up for work and meetings a priority, rather than something they view as being optional.

A similar quality that is just as important is punctuality. Employers want to hire somebody who will be on time at all meetings, whether they are with fellow workers or potential clients.

If jobseekers are unsure as to which of these characteristics they possess, or if they will make a good salesperson, they may want to take a sales skill assessment and find out.
