Sales Advisor Resume Sample and Format

The job application process for a sales advisor position has changed significantly due to the arrival of new technologies. Resumes are now mostly electronically scanned, prescreened, and stored for recruiters to look through at a later time.

Here are a few sales advisor resume format tips that will help you build a great resume:

  1. Use standard and plain fonts such as Times New Roman, Calibri, and Courier using size 10-12 pt.
  2. Avoid borders, shading, or graphics on your resume.
  3. Print your resume on a high-quality paper through a laser printer on one side only.
  4. Send an original or high-quality copy – preferably unfolded in a flat envelope – to avoid creasing.

Your resume for a sales advisor position should look something like this:
