As a hiring manager, wading through a sea of inside sales CVs can feel like panning for gold. The 'shining nuggets' are those clear, concise documents that reflect the core role of an inside sales rep: ingenuity, tenacity, and an undeniable knack for building relationships that converts leads into satisfied, loyal customers. Your CV needs to echo these key traits, and I’m here to explain how.

The typical journey in inside sales often starts at entry level before advancing to managerial roles, depending on drive, skill, and company structure. The landscape in 2023-2024 will likely lean more on data-driven sales techniques as tech keeps advancing. This means recruiters will be on the lookout for candidates who are adaptable and tech-savvy.

Let's clear up some confusion. 'CV' is just a simple term swap for 'resume', usually in the UK, Europe, and Australia or with employers from those countries. It does not mean you have to provide an exhaustive 3-4 page document, unless it’s a research or academic role. Stick to the same 1-2 page guideline as resumes, but just call it a CV when it's requested.
