“It’s all about standing out in a competitive job market. Anything you can do that differentiates you will be effective as long as it’s not in a negative light.” -- Workplace expert and author Dan Schawbel
A resume is a strategic marketing piece, an advertisement, designed to get you the initial interview in your job search. It must strongly demonstrate (1) not just what you did but how well you did it, and (2) that you will help fulfill the employer’s need to accomplish such goals as increased revenue or market share. Your resume is just like the brochures, testimonials, links, and other promotional items you give to your customers and prospects heralding the value of your product/service. In this scenario you are the product, and your sales skills and exemplary background are the service.
There are many schools of thought concerning resume writing. Some favor the usual “vanilla” format that has been used for decades: standard look, font, etc. There are many people who have succeeded in getting a job interview with the “old way.” That’s fine. No matter the endeavor or activity, there will always be the advocates who will never budge from what they consider the old tried and true method of accomplishing these.
However, there is stiff competition for sales rep positions. Just look at LinkedIn. Sign into your account and click the Jobs tab, input your job title in Search jobs and your city in Search location then click Search. When you click on a job posting, in the right-hand column appears with information about the position. Under Job it shows how many other applicants there are already.
EagleSalesResumes.com believes your resume—and cover letter—should not just be professional looking and informative. They should be eye-catching, to grab the reader’s attention and create interest to further review your application.
“I’ve been a recruiter for 30 years. I’m sure I have reviewed over 500,000 resumes. I can’t prove this but I’m reasonably confident that this is the case, as this is only an average of about 46 a day. I know many days I have reviewed hundreds of resumes and most in less than 20 seconds. I would say the average is probably around 5 to 7 seconds” -- Brad Remillard, a founding Partner of IMPACT Hiring Solutions, co-author of You're NOT the Person I Hired, and This is NOT the Position I Accepted.
