Include relevant sales certifications.
Generally, employers require sales directors to have a bachelor’s degree. However, it is not a strict rule in most companies. Others will be willing to hire candidates with a non-traditional education background and sales certifications. There are three certifications that can help you validate your skills as a sales director: -Certified Inside Sales Professional (CISP). -Certified Sales Leadership Professional (CSLP). -Certified Professional Sales Person (CPSP).
