Sample Sales Manager & General Manager Resumes

Sample sales manager resume and general manager resume written for an executive who wanted the flexibility to apply for multiple positions

This sales manager resume and the general manager resume that follows it are samples illustrate a strategy you can use if you are having trouble narrowing down your career focus.

Immediately upon picking up your resume, the recipient should be clear about the focus. The strategy of writing a “broad” or “general” resume will almost always fail. Don’t be afraid to be specific. There should be absolutely no ambiguity in regards to your focus. It isn’t enough to simply toss out all your qualifications and hope that one will “stick”. Readers tend to be lazy and give your resume only a few seconds at most before making the decision to screen it out or screen it in (for more thorough review). In those few seconds, they need to come away with a clear understanding of your focus (level and type of position you are seeking) and how you would fit and add value within their organization. The focus should be crystal clear from a no more than a glance and every word and element in the body of the resume should support this emphasis.

Sales Manager Resume & General Manager Resume: A Lesson In Focus

If you review the above examples carefully, you will see how the focus of each was subtly shifted to emphasize the most important qualifications for each objective. The sales manager resume showcases revenue growth, profit growth, customer base growth, and similar metrics.

On the other hand, while the overall data is the same, the general manager resume focuses more on leadership skills and core management skills, and the accomplishments that prove them both.

I want to thank you with all the effort you have done! I have found already some companies which are like to have me and they want to employ me here in my favorite Country. I know, that the key was also the work you did, brushing up my career on paper and make it in a way I would never be able to. Again, thank you so much ! Receive my best Regards and I will stay in touch with you. Maybe some day I will need your help again if I would come to the US.

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.

Sharon is a terrific partner in this process! She did an excellent job of reframing my experience (very difficult to do) and producing a "clean" resume. Excellent quality and writing (and I'm very, very particular about writing style and form). Every contact I had with your organization was highly professional and 100% customer focused. Thank you! I would love to have the opportunity to work with Sharon and your organization again...you delivered a high-quality product in a timely, professional fashion.
