Marketing and sales roles often require a blend of technical skills and interpersonal abilities.
Make sure to emphasise any experience or achievements that demonstrate your ability to create and execute successful marketing campaigns, generate leads, or close sales. Use specific examples and quantify your results whenever possible to illustrate the impact you’ve had in the past.
