About this CV template:

Our retail sales résumé example will be a great tool for you when you're putting together your own résumé for a sales position. It is packed with dummy information that you can use as an example of the sort of things you need to write in your résumé. You will notice that the top part of the template includes a section where you can summarise the best reasons why you're suitable for the role in hand. In this section you should avoid fluff and be as specific as possible - you will note for example that in our template we have put "Two-year record of dedication and dependability reinforced by consistent 'exceeds expectations' ratings on performance reviews and multiple 'Employee of the Month' honors". This is far more specific and detailed than putting, for example, "Dedicated and dependable person with good customer service skills". Your reference to specific achievements helps your prospective employers see evidence of the particular qualities that they are looking for, for the role.
