If you own a sales company, you understand the importance of setting goals, but more importantly, meeting the goals you set. If your sales representatives are underperforming, your company could be in jeopardy. It’s vital to your company’s success that you have experienced, passionate salespeople on your team with a go-getter type of attitude.
Many people like to believe they are good sales representatives, but unfortunately they’re not. Hiring someone to fill a sales position can be a difficult task, as it’s very time consuming to understand an individual’s skill level. Resumes are often exaggerated and past employers don’t provide reliable information when called for a reference. Choosing the wrong candidate can result in a large loss of money after investing in the hiring and training process.

Improving your resume
The marketplace for experienced sales representative is extremely competitive. To stand out among employers, you need a winning resume and prior employment that speaks to your talent. What are some of the qualities of successful candidates?
Phone communication skills are very important. A majority of all sales transactions and leads are generated over the phone. (Some estimates even say as much as 92% of all sales occur over the phone). Employers want to see that you are personable and convincing enough to promote their product or service without actually having to meet in person.
Employers also want to see that you can make a difference, but they want to see the statistics on paper. For example, your resume should specifically show how much you contributed to overall sales in your previous jobs. Did you increase sales by 5% or more? Did you make up a substantial portion of overall revenue? If so, employers want to see that on your resume.
