Interview with Lydia Steiner
What do you value most in your working life?
Very simple! I value these three things the most: the working atmosphere, the flat hierarchies, and the family-friendliness.
As Senior Sales Manager, you are responsible for "New Business" - what fascinates you most about this area?
For me, it’s always a sense of achievement when I am able to win new customers who start with XING Business Solutions. The main focus here is on consulting and personal contact! Depending on the customer's initial situation, it's fun to find individual solutions and show them new ways and possibilities.
How would you describe the working atmosphere in the company and in your team?
The working atmosphere is relaxed and amicable. You always have the opportunity to organize your own day. The goals are ambitious, but that's what motivates you immensely! And with the support of the Team Lead, you can always develop and apply new strategies and approaches.
What is the best thing about a job in Sales?
Particularly when I compare my current position at XING with my previous job - in which I didn't have any performance-based pay - the best thing about a job in sales is that my personal successes are directly reflected in my salary. It's great to celebrate successes as a team! Shared offsites and celebrations round things off, of course.
2021, NEW WORK SE has moved into a new office in Vienna. What do you like best about it?
The central location directly at the Schottentor is simply ideal! The building itself is historically relevant and very impressive. It's a pleasure to go into a historic building where this history and modernity meet - for example, through the interior design and the two sun terraces, which invite you to relax or work.
In your time as Senior Sales Manager so far, what event has stayed in your memory in a particularly positive way?
So far, my best experience was the Kick Off in Valencia a few years ago! It was great to see all the colleagues from the different locations pulling together! That was really empowering.
What was the application process like for you?
I was approached directly on the XING network, even though I had no previous experience in the HR industry. The application process was multi-step and professional to ensure a good fit between me and the company.
What advice would you like to give to readers who are currently looking for a job in sales?
What motivates you personally in sales and why do you always want to approach customers to present solutions and products? Can you identify with the vision and mission of your future employer?
Visit your future workplace directly and trust your gut.
