Sales Profile-R

.: Detecting sales potential

New! The Sales Profile-R assesses one's commercial potential, by revealing an individual's scores on the abilities and motivations in the field of sales. The test also helps to illustrate a candidate's sales specialization by highlighting their particular strengths. This psychometric test is used for recruitment as well as for training, internal career development, and sales force auditing.

This revised version of the Sales Profile includes a new group called "Negotiation Skills", as well as questions that are closer to "real life" sales scenarios.
