Filled with quantified accomplishments and charts and graphs to illustrate them, this example sales engineer resume is attractive, easy to read, and highly effective.
There are often ample opportunities to include quantified results in a sales engineer resume, and as you write your sales resume you should take advantage of them all. Include accomplishments that show not only how you increased sales, but also how you improved customer relations, grew market share, improved efficiency, decreased process bottlenecks, strengthened profits, and more. Presenting these success stories in the CAR format can be especially effective.
Charts and graphs are another good way to improve the eye appeal of your resume. They are eye-catching, and even though they are being used more often, they are still unexpected and generate positive impressions.
The shaded boxes call out the “one” most significant and impactful accomplishment at each company. Also, note the diversity of verbs used in the resume. Don’t just repeat the same verbs over and over. Use synonyms to make your sales engineer resume more compelling and interesting.
While two pages are preferable, it is acceptable to have a three-page resume as long as everything you have included is relevant and compelling. It does not make sense to cut information that “sells” you just because of space. But you may want to solicit multiple opinions from friends and family before you decide you need three pages as it is hard to be objective about your own resume.
This particular example sales engineer resume goes back to 1989. This may seem quite dated, depending on when you are looking at it. At the time it was written, this wasn’t much more than 20 years in the past. While there are no hard and fast rules, 20 years is usually the max cut-off point and even 10 or 15 is acceptable. The decision about how far back to take your resume in time is a strategic one and should be made thoughtfully.
