I'm interviewing for a job next week in which a key requirement for the job is 'developing relationships'. It's a sales sort of role and my background isn't necessarily in sales, but I have mostly all of the requirement they are looking for.
My question--how do I best connect my past professional experience to match a question such as "Have you had to develop relationships in the past?"
I have had my own consulting business in which I did work with a few clients, so I think i can use that. I was also thinking that since I am still in touch/connected with old co-workers from most of my old roles this might be useful as well.
Maybe it comes down to having just good networking skills in general?
