Ace your sales interview

By Alan Kleinman

It's job hunting season. Many merchant level salespeople (MLSs) find springtime, before summer vacations swing into high gear, is an ideal time to explore new job opportunities. Surprisingly, some applicants think their past performance will carry them, but this is simply not true. In this article, I will share pointers on basic job search etiquette.

Distinguish yourself

Whether you are an experienced MLS or someone new to the payments industry, adhering to the following job search tips may set you apart.

Good luck!

Remember, this industry is small; people's reputations do precede them - good and bad. Be the candidate whose astute professionalism confirms esteem or suspends doubts. Keep this job search etiquette in mind to capitalize on every opportunity.
