In 2018, we had this big idea to revolutionise Sales hiring globally and launched www.thesalestalent.com, an exclusive Career Portal for Sales professionals Globally.
We realized that most organizations globally are facing huge churn in Sales function and one of the key reasons being 70% organizations hire Sales professionals based on gut feel (based on experience and success in the past role). This is leading to professionals failing to perform.
Though it may sound easy to hire Sales Talent, but 90% of the recruiters agree that it’s the most difficult skill to hire for because the time you have to spend in identifying them and accessing them, is huge and what if you are responsible to hire Sales Talent globally for your organization, it’s even more tougher to reach the right sales guys? Sales Talent has been rated in top 5 most difficult skills to hire for over a decade now.
This is the second most in-demand job, and unsurprisingly so. Most businesses are about selling stuff, and with the economy doing well, they need people to help make those transactions happen. – Global News, Canada
Approximately 90 percent of hiring managers surveyed report it is becoming more challenging to recruit and hire enterprise sales professionals, with 57 percent saying it has become even more difficult over the past 18 months. – Recruiter.com
25.8% of founders said that the hardest executive hire they made in was for a sales leader – LinkedIn on Startups
The Bay Area currently has more than 3500 unfilled software sales jobs on Indeed, second only to NYC at 4300 – similar ratios can be found on Glassdoor and LinkedIn.
