EXECUTIVE RESUME SERVICES

Your Resume Has Just 6 Seconds to Make a Great Impression.

According to a study done by The Ladders, recruiters spend an average of six seconds reviewing an individual resume.

 

To stand-out and win interviews, your executive resume must not only be well written but also formatted in a way that quickly conveys your value and is optimized for the modern reader.

 

 

Our Personalized Process

 

We’ve found the best way to truly get to know you and your goals for your new executive resume is to spend time together in a deep-dive interview over the phone. During this call, we’ll talk through your goals for your job search, your career history, and really dig into your achievements, unique value, and other details recruiters and hiring managers want to see.

 

This highly-consultative process also allows us to strategize how to mitigate any unique issues you might have like an extended gap in employment, short tenures, a career transition, or complex experience. 

 

Our Resume Strategy 

Hyper-targeted resumes perform the best, so we create documents that narrow the focus of your experience down to what is most important for your next move. It’s not about everything you’ve done, but what you can do next. To do this, we:

  • Use achievement-based language that emphasizes your accomplishments and highest-level value.

  • Create visually unique and stand-out resumes that position you as a leader or executive.

  • Include targeted keywords and relevant skills to ensure you get through keyword scanners in recruiter databases or when applying online. We’ll also make it easy for you to update to align your skills for each application.

  • Format your document according to how recruiters and hiring managers read resumes and how readers skim content online and in print. This ensures your most important information doesn’t get lost in the details.

Before our interview, we’ll send you questions to help you think through the topics we’ll cover together. I’ll also ask for links to ideal jobs to help me tailor your new resume and messaging for the roles you want.  

During our in-depth interview by phone, we’ll talk through your goals and discuss each of your relevant roles and achievements in detail so we can gather all the essential information over the course of 60 to 90 minutes to create a stand-out end product.

After our interview, we will start from scratch to create a completely new document for you, one that is hyper-focused to your next career goal, visually interesting, and includes your highest-level accomplishments.   

You'll receive the first draft in 5-7 business days. Then, Debra will work with you to make content edits until you are 100% satisfied before sending it to our professional proofreader to finalize. The process takes a week and a half to two weeks from start to finish.

We work with recruiters, headhunters, and hiring managers to know what they look for in outstanding resumes and profiles.

We understand the technology behind the applicant tracking systems (ATS) to make sure that your resume has the right format and keywords. 

It’s never easy to write about yourself or to fully recognize your achievements. Our process is often a major boost to your confidence. It also helps you prepare for job interviews after talking through everything together.

We do the heavy lifting to save you time and eliminate the stress of telling your professional story in a clear, concise, and compelling way.
