My name is Crystal and I am a salesperson… or am I? In my eighteen months as a HireArt sales superstar — my first official role directly in sales — I have learned many, many things. I’ve learned to take rejection like a champ. I’ve learned the true meaning of being aggressive. I’ve learned that not every single person in the world that I speak with will be charmed and enchanted by me (WHAT? INSANITY!). What I haven’t figured out yet is if there’s a point at which someone can truly consider themselves a “salesperson”. Is it based on experience (check…

It might even seem like an endless series of obstacles is thrown in your way — from when you submit your resume, to the phone screen, to the interview itself. Maybe they’re testing your resolve. Are you persistent enough to stick it out through the entire process? Or maybe you’ve been ghosted by an employer, and you keep staring at your inbox convinced you did something wrong.

Whether you’re hiring an entry-level sales associate, a seasoned software developer, or a talented hair stylist, one thing is almost certain: “years of experience required” is somewhere in the job description. This “measure” of knowledge and ability is frequently used to screen applicants. But does it tell you anything about a candidate’s future success on the job? Hiring managers have to digest a lot of information (read: thousands of resumes) in a short period of time, so they inevitably look for mental shortcuts to help them sift through their growing pile of applicants. Everyone looks for past work experience because…
