Have you ever…
- Hired what you thought was the ideal salesperson, only to be disappointed with the results?
- Brought on a salesperson with the right skills, but who wasn’t the right fit?
- Wished you could hire top sales producers the first time?
If you answered “Yes!” to any of these scenarios, you are not alone.
Why Sales Recruiting is So Challenging
In today’s shifting economic climate, it’s difficult to meet revenue goals without the right sales resources in place.
Too often, sales teams are filled with average-level talent that doesn’t understand how to effectively close business to meet their targets. At the same time, open headcounts can often translate into losses: in productivity, in revenue, in market share. More than ever, strategic sales recruiting is critical to determining an organization’s success. You can’t grow your company to its true sales potential without hiring top producers.
But with limited time, resources, and expertise, sales recruiting can sometimes come last on a manager’s priority list. Managers under pressure to fill open headcounts may make quick-fix hires of near-miss candidates. Others, waiting to stumble across a sales superstar, may never fill their open positions.
In the end, these sales managers recruit and hire with the resources provided, often at the expense of the company’s competitive advantage. To build a successful sales organization, you need to recruit top sales talent with the skills to take your company to the next level.

Recruit Inside and Outside Sales Professionals
Inside sales is one of the fastest growing sales professions. As businesses look beyond their local boundaries to expand their customer bases, inside sales representatives are a natural solution.
Contrary to popular belief, outside sales isn’t dead. In fact, outside sales is thriving as one of the fastest growing areas of sales, and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
Recruiting Top Sales Talent
Hoping to avoid these costly errors, and recruit those top sales people quickly, companies rely on internal recruiters or external staffing vendors to fill their open sales positions. At times, this strategy can be costly–and not just in placement fees. Generalist recruiters search for sales talent the same way they would for any other candidate: by relying on job descriptions and hard skill sets. This strategy is often a sound one for positions with specific requirements for education and experience. However, sales people don’t often fit into general molds and finding the right sales fit often transcends the traditional job description.
A sales recruiter, on the other hand, possesses the experience necessary to recognize these important cues from sales candidates, and target sales candidates who are exceptional, filling open positions faster with better talent. This is why a firm that specializes in recruiting top sales talent will always outperform generalists. To find a great sales talent, you need more than just a big net.

The main reason I accepted the offer was because of my recruiter’s help and support. He understood my situation, and when he spoke, it felt genuine. He didn’t just sell me a dream. He made me feel like I belonged here. Thank you!

Your email for candidate preparation is the best I have ever seen. Most people will never go out of their way to suggest such things.
— Michael S., Sales Representative
My recruiter is a true asset. I’ve worked in Sales and Customer Service for over 12 years and it is rare that anybody cares truly about what your needs are. I was super impressed with my recruiter’s sincerity in helping me, and his professionalism throughout the interview process.
— Shalenza C., Sales Representative
My recruiter gives me a tremendous amount of support. I am always excited to meet the candidates he sends because they are all professional and have strong sales backgrounds.
— Residential Sales Manager, Security Firm
From the first call, my recruiter did a most excellent job of interviewing me and finding out what kind of Sales Representatives I was seeking. She took that information and was able to deliver a very strong candidate pool for me to interview. From that pool, I was able to hire three of the candidates for my team.
— District Sales Manager, Security Firm
In the past, recruiting all fell on the sales manager’s shoulders. It used up so much of our time at the expense of running our business. ACA Talent has made it possible for me to focus on my job with little concern over manpower. It’s like pushing the “easy” button with them.

My recruiter at ACA Talent intuitively knows what kinds of candidates I want to see, so I don’t have to see four candidates to get to the one that I want.
— Field Sales Manager, Security Firm
In the past, recruiting was very time-consuming. I spend zero time recruiting now that we’re working with ACA Talent. I don’t have to pound the pavement to find people.

The entire process from the moment you called until the interview had to have been one of the smoothest interactions I have ever had with a recruiter. I don’t think I would have gotten the position without your help.

I have seen a variety of approaches to marketing new positions in the past month. You have done an outstanding job of giving your client an excellent persona as a future employer, well above the rest! I appreciate the time you have spent with me.

My recruiter covered every bit of the job and walked me through every step. He was one of the most personable, passionate, and caring recruiters I have ever encountered, and if there was anything I needed, he was just a phone call away.
