Most hiring managers will tell you that your resume has less than 20 seconds to tell the them exactly what you’ve done in your career, what actions you took to make those things happen, and the unique core skills that have allowed you to succeed.
Your resume needs to be a clear and powerful narrative of your career, allowing you to quickly differentiate yourself from the competition. We’ll work with you to put together an amazing resume that tells the reader who you are, what you’ve achieved, and why you are the ideal candidate for the position they’re looking to fill.
Our executive resume writing services focus on three critical areas that consistently help our clients to win interviews: strategy, content, and design.
We start each executive resume writing project with a clear end goal. Before we even begin writing, we conduct an in-depth consultation to openly discuss your specific career targets and what we can do to effectively align your experiences and skill sets to help you get there. We can’t move forward on a project if your can’t tell us how you plan to use your new resume, because unless the resume has a concrete strategy, there’s very little that we can do to help. If you’re applying for jobs with a loosely targeted resume, you might as well not send it at all.
Creating great content for an executive resume is an art form. Your resume needs to be powerful, but avoid the clichés and “resume speak” that drives hiring managers crazy. It should be keyword rich, but easy to read. It should tell your personal story, but be brief. You ultimately want the reader to be able to browse through the resume and really understand who you are, what you accomplished in each position, and why you would be the best candidate to fit the opening in their company.
Looks do matter when it comes to your executive resume. Not only does your resume need to be easy on the eyes, it needs to be constructed to draw attention to the most valuable pieces of of information. It’s obvious to recruiters and hiring managers when they see a resume that was created using Microsoft Word’s resume template or when you’ve clearly just kept adding on to your first resume after college…20 years ago.
