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 used your services approx 16motnsh go and have now been in my current role for 1 year. I am 100% positive the investment in your services helped get me an interview and secure a 6 figure position. In a sea of similar resume's and great talent searching for employment you helped me stand out from the crowd. Still we remain in tumultuous time and deep recession. I think it only prudent to that I keep my resume and cover letters up to date with current employment and performance measures. I would like to consider using you to update my documents. Do you offer an update service?

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful job on my resume and cover letter! The difference I must say is night and day; it's really amazing:) I feel so much more confident distributing my resume now. Before, I was often hesitant to apply for more competitive jobs because I subconsciously didn't think my resume was up to "par", or worthy enough to distribute, especially to top tier jobs like Google, and other Fortune 500 jobs...Silicon Valley is known for its very competitive job market (and I must say it definitely lives up to this reputation) and before I felt that while I had the skills, experience, and drive to compete for a job here in the San Jose and San Francisco area, my resume did not allow me to show it. Now, with my new resume and cover letter, I feel so much more CONFIDENT that my resume will get me noticed in the more competitive jobs, which is exactly why I hired Distinctive Document's services! So, in this case, I did definitely get what I paid for :0) (This sounds so much like one of those accolades on your website lol but it's true!) I cannot thank you enough, and I cannot stop admiring my resume and cover letter...I love them that much!

As my resume is reaching its final completion stage, I would like to thank you for your help. Nancy did a great job with my resume, and helped me figure out what exactly I wanted (which was a task on its own). Entering the professional world for the first time is daunting and scary and I feel more confident with the resources your company has provided.

Your team was responsive to me at the start of the process and even more responsive when I picked this back up 6 months later. The quality of my interactions with your team has been second to none and I will happily recommend you and your team to my colleagues. I am blown away by the quality of these documents. These are exactly what I need to move to the next stage in my career and I know they will help me get where I want to be. I will happily recommend your company to friends and colleagues. I couldn't be happier and I thank you again for your help.
