Tips for the Sales Resume
1. Include Your Target Title
Always include the job title or position you want on your resume and bold it. Human resources persons typically scan resumes and this is one of the first things they look for. Include the specific title or position you are targeting such as Sales Representative, Field Representative, or Customer Service Representative rather than a general title. This is particularly important if you are new to the pharmaceutical or medical device industries.

2. Tailor Your Sales Resume
Just as each customer has different needs, so do potential employers. You will need to customize your resume for each and every position that you apply for. That isn’t to say you can’t have a general resume on file as a starting place. You will just need to read the job description of each sales role for which you apply and mold your resume to the specific needs of that position at that company to give yourself the best shot at getting an interview.

3. Nix the Objective
Remove “Objective” as a section title in your resume. The person who reads your resume will know that your objective is to get a job offer from them. This is an old resume style that you should avoid. Instead, start with your “Career Summary.”

4. Lead with Numbers
Melissa Orpen-Tuz, a certified professional resume writer for Great Resumes Fast, says those wanting to enter the medical device or pharmaceutical industries need a different kind of resume. For these industries, specifically in sales, she says you should include solid numbers that demonstrate your performance.

“This is truly different from any other career field,” says Orpen-Tuz. “On a sales resume you want to lead with numbers and quantifiable results to show what you have done.”

Include sales numbers, details of how you have grown the client pool for your current employer, or explain the more extreme lengths you have taken to make a sale such as taking medical training to better know your target industry. This is a place you can really set yourself apart from other candidates.

5. Feature Relevant Classes & Training
The medical device and pharmaceutical industries are very closed, meaning hires from outside the industry are uncommon, according to Debra Boggs, a professional resume writer for Great Resumes Fast. With that in mind, she advises any coursework or medical experience you can include in your resume will be beneficial.

“On your resume, do whatever you can to show your knowledge of the industry or in sales and marketing,” says Boggs. “If you have been a top performer in another industry, you are more likely to have success in the transition. Because they are so selective, they aren’t going to take someone from outside the industry unless they are a high performer. These are the hardest industries to get into.”

Sales has always been a special area. My boss hired there only by personal interview and only those guys who were smart enough and nimble. But there are many other professions, more academic professions. A friend of mine has a bachelor's degree in pharmaceuticals. This is a very good start for the job. But she had to use a special resume to get her experience accepted - https://resumewritinglab.com/pharmaceutical-resume-writing-service.html She is glad that she gave up the idea of doing everything herself.
