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.

Michelle, A quick note from a VERY happy client...Just had an opportunity to go through the first draft of Sharon's work. I am so impressed. She has done a wonderful job. And mine is not one that is copy and paste from others like me. My current job, in particular, is pretty esoteric. And, Sharon NAILED it! Look forward to wrapping this up. In the meantime, thank you for pairing me with such a great professional! Happy to help on referrals. Great product, great value and great experience so far.

Hi Michelle, Just wanted to update you that I have accepted a position with a consulting company that focuses on sales force effectiveness. The resume and cover letter clearly caught attention with the managing partners. I called them and the one I talked to had a call to me on his 'to do' list...Thank you for the discussions and for the work you did on preparing me for the employment market. I really needed the expert advice and work on my resume since it had been so long since I even tried looking. Best of luck to you for a successful 2012.

Michelle has a wonderful ability to pull lots of information into a concise, action-oriented resume. The first two people I sent mine to while networking both said WOW! I highly recommend her services.

Thank you so much for the great resume. Thomas did a superb job and should be commended for such. The resume looks great and Thomas made the entire process easy and smooth. I would like you to know that since I was laid off the day I returned the worksheet to you I was in a scramble to draft up my own just so that I would have something to use in my job search until I received my "Distinctive" resume. When I received my resume, I was blown away at how much better Thomas was able to present the same information. More than that though, my resume from Distinctive Documents is truly a confidence booster and for that I'll never be able to thank you enough. Please recognize Thomas for his great work and professionalism. And thank you, thank you, thank you! I will recommend your services to others without hesitation.
