Furniture Sales Associate Resume FAQ

How do you describe furniture sales on a resume?

Use the following writing tips to help you describe your furniture sales experience throughout your resume.

  1. Demonstrate your related sales experience: You want to prioritize your persuasive communication skills, attention to product knowledge and prior sales experience. This information doesn’t have to be limited to furniture sales. You can showcase retail, auto, or electronic sales experience if you focus on transferable experiences like meeting daily sales goals, scheduling deliveries or processing payment plans.
  2. Provide details about your sales achievements: Your resume will impress more hiring managers if you use numbers to back up your accomplishments. For example, a hiring manager can learn more about your sales skills if you write, “Met a personal daily sales goal of $5,300 in product sales, contributed to a quarterly sales growth of 8%,” is more informative than, “Met daily sales goals and helped contribute to a steady store sales growth.”
  3. Elaborate on specialized sales skills: Help hiring managers identify you as a strong candidate by prioritizing desirable skills such as the ability to learn product information quickly, know about performance fabrics or specialized wood treatments, knowledge of interior design mockup software or high success rate in signing new store credit card customers.

What is a good summary for a sales resume?

Most hiring managers skim a resume in seven seconds before they decide to pass on or consider the candidate. An effective resume summary sits at the top of your resume and persuades a hiring manager to consider your application seriously. You can improve your odds by sharing a skill or sales experience that aligns with the open job posting. Use numbers to help drive this point.
