How long do Sales Engineer jobs stay listed on job boards?

Answer: (D) 119 days

According to SmartRecruiters, Sales Engineers positions ranked #2 as the longest time to fill.  On average, sales engineer positions stay listed for an average of 119.7 days. Sales Engineers are not ordinary sales staff as they are tasked with selling complex scientific and tech products. SmartRecruiters told FORBES that “hard to fill positions are those that take the longest time to fill. The reason why they take so long is that these positions are high impact positions that require very specific skills. Employees in these roles directly affect the bottom line of the company. Hence, companies are willing to wait longer to find the best possible fit for these jobs.”
