State your work history in reverse chronological order with the most recent job you worked in first followed by the rest. Also include a summary of your work experience that shows how this job taught you sales or management skills. Professional positions held in sales as well as previous management or supervisor positions are also to be stated under this section.

4. Educational background

State degrees or courses you have taken in relation to sales and management. For each item that you state, do include the affiliated company or institution, location, date on which you completed the programme.
