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 wanted you to know that I was offered a position yesterday here in the XXXXX area at an excellent medical device/laser therapy equipment company. I have accepted the position... Now that the search is over, I want you to know that I have had more responses to my resume in the last 3 months than at any other time in my career. I have had multiple responses to cold call mailings. (a ten fold increase over previous cold job searches) Also the e-distribution you sent out netted me 1 phone interview per every 8-10 e-mail response. Excellent!! I am a faithful supporter of your work. Thanks again.

Michelle, I worked with you last January on my resume and various materials. They were excellent and you were excellent. I was going through a tough time and you and your resume gave me the confidence I needed to have the successful year I have enjoyed. I had several interviews and opportunities, but in the end decided I wanted to have my own business. So, I ended up staying at my job turning around Xxxxxxxxx, starting some ancillary businesses with it, and I go in to meet the President of the parent company Monday to make an offer. Your resume has helped open the door with many investors. I will let you know how it all turns out. I have and will continue to refer your company to friends and colleagues. You may be getting an inquiry from one today.
