面试官：Hello, thank you for coming. Could you please introduce yourself？
应聘者：Yes, of course. My name is John, and I am a recent graduate of Business Administration. I majored in International Marketing during my undergraduate study, and I have gained considerable theoretical and practical experience in international trade.
面试官：Great, why are you interested in becoming a foreign trade salesperson？
应聘者：I love to communicate and negotiate with people from different cultures and countries. I find it exciting and challenging to help bridge the gap between different business worlds and bring valuable products and services to new markets. Besides, I believe foreign trade sales is a promising and rewarding career that can offer me opportunities for personal and professional growth.
面试官：Sounds good. What do you think are the most important skills for a foreign trade salesperson？
应聘者：First of all, I think language proficiency and communication skills are essential, as foreign trade often involves dealing with customers, suppliers, and partners from different countries and regions. Second, a foreign trade salesperson should have strong marketing and sales abilities, as well as product knowledge, to identify market needs and opportunities and close deals successfully. Third, attention to detail and good organization skills are also important to ensure that orders are delivered timely and accurately.
面试官：Very impressive. Can you give an example of a challenging situation you have encountered in your previous work experience, and how did you handle it？
应聘者：Sure. In my previous internship at a trading company, we had a customer from Japan who was quite demanding and always asked for discounts and additional services, which was against our company policy. However, we also knew that losing this customer would mean a significant loss to our business. So I had to negotiate with my supervisor and the customer directly, and we eventually reached a compromise that satisfied both sides. I learned the importance of flexibility, communication, and creativity in dealing with difficult situations in foreign trade.
面试官：Very well done, John. Finally, what is your long-term career goal, and how do you see yourself achieving it in this position？
应聘者：My long-term career goal is to become a foreign trade manager or a business consultant, who can provide strategic and innovative solutions to companies in diverse industries and regions. I believe that this position as a foreign trade salesperson can equip me with valuable technical and people skills, as well as a deep understanding of the global market and industry trends. By demonstrating my dedication, creativity, and results-oriented mindset, I hope to gain more responsibilities and opportunities to grow within this company and the industry.
