Tips For Creating A Stellar Sales Profile on Hired
When starting your Hired profile, it can be hard to know where to start. What experiences and accomplishments should you include so you can attract the right jobs and companies?
Keep these tips in mind while creating or editing your profile, so that you stand out from the crowd and land a job you love.
- A clear, well-lit picture of yourself
- Résumé and LinkedIn links attached
- Clear and concise work history section – Share your key job responsibilities and accomplishments in each of your roles, and account for any gaps in employment
- Accurate location buckets
Summaries are an opportunity to tell employers more about yourself outside of the constraints of a résumé or cover letter. Use this space to share your professional accomplishments, your range of sales experience, and interests with employers. Have some fun with it and let your personality shine through!
Make sure to cover the following in your Summary!
What you are doing currently?
Write about your professional projects and accomplishments you’re most proud of. Include industries you sell into, any cross-functional teams you work with, along with any reasons for making a job move.
For example: Account Executive at Company X, with 3-6 Month long sales cycle. Selling into C-Level Executives at Enterprise Accounts.
Experience and Achievements
Discuss your skills and capabilities. For salespeople, metrics are important – showcase the relevant numbers and highlight your key accomplishments. Don’t be afraid to show off!
- Ranking (within your Team, Territory, Company, etc.)
- Awards (President’s Club, 100% Club, etc.)
- Quota Attainment
- Marquee Accounts Managed or Acquired
- Activity Metrics
What are you looking for in your next role?
Include the type of role you’re looking for and the kinds of challenges you want to take on, including positions or sectors.
For example, do you want to focus on ad-tech or enterprise software companies?
