It was announced yesterday that the opening for Training Supervisor at XYZ has become available. Given my previous sales management background, I thought to toss my resume and consummate experience into the proverbial hat for consideration.
Prior to joining the XYZ taskforce, I garnered over eight year’s of management experience, part of which was heavily relegated toward recruitment, hiring, as well as training/development of sales staff. As a General Manager, I worked with teams of 15, as well as larger part-time/ seasonal staff teams of over 100. Though well-rounded obviously as need be to run businesses of $3M annually, my strength as a manager always lay in the realm of talent development in resourcing sales growth from within.
A good portion of my time with NoBrand Outlet Stores many years ago when I first arrived in Los Angeles, was as the District Sales Coordinator, traveling to stores in the central LA area and working with each staff team in sales vs. productivity analysis, then implementing coaching tools to become a more efficient sales force. Especially in such a reactive sales environment as retail, the emphasis on employee productivity and efficient management becomes the most crucial factor in determining monthly profit margins. I watched as stores jumped from high shrink rates/low profit earnings turn around within months, despite lagging customer traffic.
Those companies believed, as I do, that a sales team will make or break the future of a business. The time spent in proper training ensures not only a solid sales force, but also builds the right kind of morale to keep employees wanting to do a good job… way beyond the satisfaction of their next paycheck.
I feel confident that given my extensive background in sales management, as well as my previous success at XYZ, I’d be an ideal candidate for the Training Supervisor position. My resume is attached for your perusal.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing the opportunity together in person.
