Sample Sales Manager Resume

Purpose: Sales Manager Resume for a Former Business Owner

Tammy Lawson was on track for a very successful sales management career when she decided to leave the world of traditional employment to purchase and manage a franchise organization that was in distress and required turnaround. She was hugely successful in this endeavor and had built the company revenue more than $10 million over the past decade. She had just sold the company a few months prior when she came to me for a sales manager resume.

Sales Manager Resume Page 1While she had enjoyed the challenge of being her own boss, she yearned to go back to her sales management career, which was her passion. However, she wasn’t sure how to present this in a sales manager resume, as her most recent experience made her appear overqualified and drew attention away from her more relevant sales management experience. Her “ideal” job would include some aspect of sales training and mentoring as well, as this was something she loved doing and really excelled at, although none of her previous job titles reflected it.

More Tips for Creating Your Sales Manager Resume

The solution for this client was a sales manager resume that was written very strategically to focus on her most relevant sales qualifications and to deemphasize the fact that she had been the owner and top executive of the franchise company. While we were meticulously honest in our description of her most recent experience, we were quite selective about what we included and which aspects of her achievements we chose to focus on in order to emphasize the aspects most likely to be relevant in her next position. A variety of graphics, charts, and graphs called attention to her most impressive accomplishments and areas of qualification. Tammy’s training-related accomplishments are sprinkled throughout her new powerful sales manager resume.

I believe the resume Lisa wrote for me is absolutely great. She took all the information I put into the questionnaire and put it into exactly what I was looking. The only test now is, is to see how hiring managers receive it. I would recommend the services simply because I did my own research to find out what the market was looking for in terms of writing resumes and everything I saw was exactly what I got and then some.

The job search has ramped up into high gear since I starting using the resume you prepared for me. I interviewed today for a position as a Property Accountant with a real estate management company. My "skill set" was a great match with what they were looking for, so thanks for your efforts. I feel confident I will be offered the position. Thanks again, I'll keep you posted.

Lisa, I LOVE IT!!!! Anyone who is considering a career move should be directing their resume needs to Distinctive. This is absolutely perfect! This kind of resume is exactly what I need, but lack the experience, knowledge and time to create. I am very good at what I do, but my knowledge and my abilities have their limitiations. Acceptance of my limitations is precisely what makes me very good. However, finding the people with the knowledge and abilities that I lack, is what makes me great. Thank you for building my resume with greatness!

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.
