General Hardware Salesperson Resume

The general hardware sales person will work in a store where all kinds of tools are sold. These tools can be keys, locks, chains, hinges, plumbing supplies and any other kind of items used for general use and which are needed when one least expects it. Usually men work in these places, but women aren't an uncommon sight. Maybe the important feature the candidate must possess is knowledge about the use of every item in the shop and its denominations. At times, clients might come and ask for unusual items and the sales person must know if they have that item or not in stock. Another quality would be that of a very good organizer and having a good memory.


The classic resume runs on one or two pages for this position. It usually covers past and related experience and (or) willingness to learn new things and keeping updated. In order to increase the chances for an interview, the career goal must be stated clearly right after the contact details. Other sections included in the resume are the work experience, education, references, skills, and then any other section that you consider helpful in getting the job. You can use the resume example below if you have never written a resume before. Always make sure that the personal information is up to date.
