Sample Resumes for Sales

Sales is not actually an industry, it's a skill that (luckily for you!) can be applied to any industry. However, remember that it evolves rapidly with all the technology, so using the relevant abbreviations and terms is a key.

Additionally, sales resume most often goes through Applicant Tracking System (ATS), so it should contain keywords that will help you pass it.

Here is why this resume works:

  • It highlights your contact information.
    Let's face it, your contact information is the most critical part of your marketing document (yes, that's what a resume is). Make it easy for a recruiter to contact you and get your foot in the door. Adding an URL to your LinkedIn profile won't hurt either.
  • It uses measurable data.
    To prove that you are good salesman don't write that you are a "good salesman", show it with data. Put percentages, dollar signs, numbers, anything that can be measured and quantified.
  • It is coherent and uses action verbs.
    Action verbs are the key. Avoid passive voice and gerunds as much as possible. Here is a list of verbs you can potentially use:
  • Designed
  • Implemented
  • Managed
  • Refined
  • Created
