Real-Resumes for Sales
Log in to rate this item
A book containing resumes and cover letters of sales professionals and individuals trying to get into sales—as well as resumes and cover letters of individuals seeking to transition from sales into other types of employment. Many resumes show people changing from one type of sales to another, such as from copier sales to pharmaceutical sales. All the resumes and cover letters were used in real job campaigns and actually worked. A targeted, focused book specifically for sales professionals whose resumes and cover letters must be "a cut above" the ordinary job hunter's resume. (If the resume and cover letter of a sales professional doesn't sell, then how good could he or she be on the job?) See "pictures" or strategic blueprints of successful job campaigns when you read the companion cover letters and resumes of people "on the move" in sales careers. The Table of Contents is designed to show individuals in numerous types of sales activities including advertising, consumer products sales, financial services sales, food industry sales, furniture industry sales, medical sales, pharmaceutical sales, office equipment sales, real estate sales, retail sales, and many more. In many instances, the job hunter is seeking a career change such as a change from sales to sales management, or from sales to something else entirely different. A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter the sales field or advance in the field, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to the sales field. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."
