Manager suggested I apply for an upward move within the company, could use some advice!

Had a little 1:1 with my manager here about plans for the future within my company. She suggested I apply for a role that came open that is an upward move in our local department as what amounts to an account manager role where I upsell current clients vs. my current role where I bring in new clients.


I plan to apply, but any advice from you avages would be huge! Resume tips to make me more appealing, interview tips, questions I should ask, this is my first time venturing into this territory so any little bit helps!

Try to end every interview I've had asking "What would hold you back from hiring me right now?". Closing question. Any hiring sales manager should respect that.
