Breakthrough in Pre Employment Testing and Sales Personality Tests Helps Mid-sized and Small Businesses Hire Better Salespeople to Grow Revenues.

Conventional pre-employment testing or sales personality tests often fail to predict sales potential; testing for Total Sales Ability (TM) is the key to hiring good salespeople; employers can receive 10 Free Sales Assessment Tests from Dan Joy, Inc.


HOLLYWOOD, FL, September 12, 2009 -- It takes more than just personality to close the sale. Conventional pre employment testing based on sales personality, or a sales personality test, may be inadequate in predicting sales potential. Testing for Total Sales Ability (TM) is the best solution. Businesses wanting to hire good salespeople can now receive 10 Free Sales Assessment Tests from Dan Joy, Inc. (

A sales hiring mistake can be costly. People sometimes tend to hire someone with whom they feel comfortable, who is like them, who looks good, or who has industry knowledge. None of that necessarily means that the person can actually sell. The JOY Tests (TM) of Total Sales Ability (TM) can help reduce subjectivity and guesswork, and help employers make more objective hiring, promotion or retention decisions.

An old style pre-employment sales personality test may help determine a personality type but may not measure sales ability. Or, pre employment testing based on sales aptitude alone may not take into account actual selling techniques learnt by experience. The JOY Sales Tests (TM) go above and beyond the old sales personality tests and sales aptitude tests, by testing for Total Sales Ability (TM) instead. They test for sales prospecting ability, objection handling ability, sales closing ability, personality, psychology and much more -- a total of up to 50+ sub-competencies, traits and/or advanced selling techniques crucial to sales success. These sales assessment tests can be used to test Business Development professionals at different career levels, e.g., a Salesperson, Sales Manager, Sales Director or VP of Sales & Marketing.

In the past, pre-employment sales assessment tests were used primarily by large companies. Now, for the first time, the affordable and fully integrated online sales assessment testing system of Dan Joy, Inc. has brought the ability to administer a low-cost sales assessment test within the easy reach of small to mid-sized businesses, too.

So, how can employers tell which job applicants can sell? They can start with 10 Free Sales Assessment Test units (Screening Tests) at:
