You know the importance of an elevator pitch in sales. Well, your resume needs one too. My clients always tell me, “I didn’t realize how much I had accomplished until I saw it all written down.” Writing a fantastic resume gives me a warm feeling, but it also gives the person writing it confidence in their achievements so far. There may be some tasks or obstacles that give you a feeling of accomplishment from week to week, year to year, but it’s not every day that you get to look back on all of your career accomplishments in one sitting. It’s a game-changer!
Let’s talk about how to make a VP of Sales resume that’s so compelling, it practically sells itself (which, let’s be honest, is what you do best).
A VP of Sales Resume should include strategic vision with the ability to execute, strong leadership presence and maturity, impeccable judgment and ability to make sound decisions in a fast-paced, dynamic setting, and business acumen. A good sales executive resume is professionally written and showcases the skills and experience that a prospective employer needs. It should also contain key sales terminology and highlight your ability to close deals, increase revenue, and expand customer base. A well-written resume makes it easy for a potential employer to see why you would be an excellent fit for the position.
