Sample Sales Resume

Purpose: Sales Resume Sample With Graphic Elements

This sales resume shows a creative technique to create eye appeal in your resume, helping you get attention in even the most crowded markets. If you are in any type of sales position – a sales representative, sales associate, sales manager, account manager – or another position in which your results can be expressed by numbers, see if there may be ways for you to include a chart or graph in your resume.

Including chart or graph in your sales resume makes your selling points pop and make the quantified results easy to read. This sample sales resume uses a graph on the first page to illustrate year after year revenue, profit, and market share gains. Similar formatting is used on both the first and second page to showcase the job seeker’s many sales awards. This example also shows one way that you might handle it if you have worked at the same company twice, during different time periods.

More Tips for Creating Your Sales Resume

To use a technique like this in your own sales resume, try listing sales results out by year or month (depending on how long you have worked for the company). During your tenure have sales increased? Have customer accounts increased? Have profit margins increased? Has there been improvements in other key performance indicators? If so, you have the material for a powerful chart or graph in your own sales resume.

This is a response to your query concerning the value of your service. The first thing I have to say is the reason it has taken a while to respond is due to your service. The response has been great.

I've been so busy with my job hunt, I haven't been able to write you! I've gotten responses from many recruiters and most of them mention how great my resume is. Eli Lilly is supposedly very interested in me right now, but I haven't heard from them. I had a rep recommend me for a position with them. Otherwise, I'm interviewing with a biotech company for a great sales position and I'm going through the process with Abbott, Merck and AstraZeneca. I actually received the call out of the blue from a district manager with AstraZeneca last night. He was looking over my resume because he just had a position open up in his territory and he wanted to talk with me. We connected this afternoon and he invited me to interview with them on Friday! ... I've had a lot of people ask me about my resume and I belong to many bulletin boards and discussion groups for pharmaceutical sales wanna-be's. Many people ask for resume advice and tips. I always point them your way! I'm so glad I picked you. I just can't say enough about what a wonderful job you did on both my resume and cover letter. My husband is definitely going to ask you to do his resume once I get a position. I hope some of these other people take my advice as well, it will make their job search so much easier!! Thanks again, really. I'll let you know when I land my position!

...then a couple of months later, L.C. wrote again to say:

I just wanted to send you a quick update. Everyone was definitely impressed and dazzled by the resume you created for me! Since I started my search, I've seen dozens of other sales resumes and yours left them ALL in the dust! Some of them were even professionally designed and I really can't believe how little they got for their money. Although I did receive offers from pharma companies, I finally accepted an offer from a medical device company! I'm now a medical sales consultant and I LOVE my new career! I want to thank you again for helping me get my foot in the door with landing interviews and for all of the stress you took off my shoulders by taking my resume on. Now that I have my dream job, my husband will definitely be contact you SOON!

I give Michelle my highest recommendations. Yes it may seem like a lot of money to invest but the difference can be made up on your first paycheck in your new career. It is my personal experience that you get "more than you pay for" with the quality Michelle provides...

J.P., Texas

Michelle I was so right in choosing you as the author of my resume. I am incredibly pleased, no... more than that, blown away with your artistry and skill. It was always my objective to look this good on paper... why, I'd even hire me based on this presentation.

I have been waiting before writing to give you the great news...I applied to about eight recruitment agencies with my resume attached, all on the Internet. Within a few days I was contacted and asked to go for an interview at a company only 35 miles away. It is 3.5 years old and sells consultancy at a very senior level in large corporations...This week I received the offer letter...What has become very clear in this process is the incredible value of a good resume. Because you made it abundantly clear what I had achieved through a "messy" but interesting career path, this recruitment agency was immediately able to connect my past experience with the vacancy they knew needed me. I did not need to explain the details of my past but rather was able to continually point out where my past benefited or suited the vacancy being offered. It meant that I was able to concentrate on selling myself rather than explaining myself away...So, to say thank you seems so inadequate. But say it, I will. Thank you for doing such a good job. I have to say I did not think I would find another job at my age, but with a combination of good luck and a good resume, I made it....Initially I thought your service was expensive, but given the results, no one could complain. Thank you again.
