How to write your own Sales and Customer Representative resume?
1. Introduce yourself on a personal level
When hiring a Sales Representative, a company will look for people who have those essential skills we have outlined above. It is therefore of fundamental importance that whilst creating your application, you focus on conveying them.
Showing that you have a natural aptitude for soft skills is hard, but a way of projecting that can be by adding personal touches even to technical, structured documents like resumes. Writing a couple of sentences as a small introduction or application profile is definitely a good thing to do here. Outline everything from your motivation to your personal history, just do it concisely!
Sales and Customer Representative Profile Example
"Managers and coworkers know me to be reliable, hardworking with a positive attitude. My university and work experience taught me the importance of communication and accountability. I have been successful and am very well suited for positions requiring customer service, teamwork, training, or sales."
2. Describe notable results from your previous posts
Every application has to have some aspect of “providing evidence” to what you are saying and the descriptions of yourself. Without it, it is very hard for a reader to actually believe that you would be all the things you claim to be.
Sales Representatives, like almost every other professional, have to prove to their potential employers that they can deliver results. With this post, it specifically means showing accounts of when a person was able to guide a client through the process of finding a solution and securing a sale for their firm. If you have examples of this happening because of your work, be sure to put it down.
Sales and Customer Representative Work Experience Example
Tour Consultant / EF Canada – Education First, Toronto, Canada (08/2017 – 03/2018)
"A hybrid of sales, consulting, and education. Responsible for developing international travel programs for youth groups across the country and assessing the sales potential of prospective customers."
Street Team Representative / Monster Energy, Mississauga, Canada (06/2017 – 09/2017)
"Partnered with trade development manager with the same territory to maintain brand appearance, use exceptional communication to have proactive interactions with customers and clients. Other roles included merchandising the cold vault and in coolers, management, and placement of POS materials both in and outside of accounts of Monster Beverage Corp."
3. Complement it with more personal detail
This last piece of advice really drives home the central theme of this resume. Use a cover letter or some similar document where you can really add detail to why you would remain motivated even in a challenging, lengthy sales process. Furthermore, try adding a little bit more detail about who you are as a person and why customers or clients will enjoy working with you.
