Tips

  • Achievements: Sales Executives are mainly responsible for managing and making sales and thereby bringing money into the business. Prospective employers are very much interested in what you can do and how much positive impact you can make. You should, therefore, make note of any previous sales targets you have achieved or exceeded on your CV. This will tell the prospective employer: “I have done it before, I can do it again.”

Good Luck!
