Although Google is often considered and ranked as one of the top employers in the world, we think it's very important to say that it definitely is not the right place for everyone. Not only the whole interview process is extremely hard and selective, but projects you will work on might be very challenging and things, such as working late after hours are nothing unusual. On the other side, if you get hired by Google, you can be sure to gain priceless experience of collaborating with the best industry professionals from around the world and you will also have a great opportunity to be in the center of tech innovation. And by the way, their organizational culture is awesome too. The Account Executives at Google make $185,000 annually on average.
Successful Account Executives operate in multiple fields and their main goal is to grow the company's business. Besides communicating with potential customers and building, ideally, long-term and stable relationships with them, they also participate or are responsible for projects from other departments, for example, marketing or business development. To become an Account Executive you'll need to be an exceptional communicator and negotiator and it's also very important to have a well-developed knowledge of the company's product offerings and current industry trends.
Nothing serves as better proof of your accomplishments than the goals which you met or even exceeded. This goes especially for people who work in sales or at the sales-related position. Describing your work responsibilities is good but it doesn't attract the initial attention. It's the specific improvements and quantified achievements that do. Therefore, try to identify as many of these as possible and include them to your resume. You can also mention any employee recognition awards and rewards. Just remember, do not make the stuff up and always tell the truth in your resume.
Do not only focus on the work experience section of your resume. Despite the fact that it actually is the most important one, there are other parts which should no be left out, such as education and certifications/licenses. These will complete the image of you as a potential employee and will also provide a better clue to the Hiring Managers about who you really are. Mention only the relevant things and try to make it look as professional as possible - use the reverse-chronological order (start with the most current thing and work your way back).
Now that you have made the most important sections of your resume (work experience, education, and profile) perfect it's time to consider adding other parts as well. These can include volunteering, hobbies, and also skills. By including an appealing and well-written skills section you can adjust your resume to the specific job description. It's also a great way to show to your potential employer what you consider to be your biggest strengths and qualities. You can mention various types of abilities, for instance, languages, computer skills, and interpersonal skills. The skills section of resume above provides a great example of how to do it.
