Ah, the ultimate humble-brag question.
Now, the real question is, how do you sell yourself without trying to look arrogant, desperate, or needy?
A good rule of thumb here is to stay away from the extremes. Think you’re a good fit for the job? Say that “you have the right experience.”
Whatever you do, don’t oversell yourself:
“I’m the best salesman you’ve ever met!”
Instead, make a general statement (I’m a great fit for the position because…) and talk about your experiences and achievements.
Here are 3 general points you can mention:
- How you’re super passionate about working for the company (and why).
- How your skills fit their requirements.
- How you’re going to help the company solve their existing problems. Improve a metric, setup a process, etc.
Well, as a start, I have all the skills and work experience required for the job. I’ve worked as a Sales Manager for 5+ years, and over the past 2, I’ve closed several deals totalling in 6-figures.
Oh, and on top of that, I have experience working with tech companies, so I’ll be able to pick up all the product specifics much faster than the other candidates.
