Strong sales resumes showcase how you grow the business, keep the business, introduce new product, and keep your customers happy. I love writing resumes for sales professionals because frequently they work in organizations where performance metrics are tracked on a regular basis so they have a lot of good, tangible data to work with. Most know if they are meeting their revenue and retention goals and this is exactly the type of information hiring managers need to see on the resume.
The resume below for an account manager at a media company, was contributed by Laura Labovich, Chief Career Strategist at Aspire! Empower! Career Strategy Group and it is a great example of how key metrics can improve the quality of your resume and make you stand out in the crowd.
