Sample Executive Resumes from Amy L. Adler
For those who have scoured the Internet for ideas for sample executive resumes, the following resume samples from real executives are going to refresh your thinking. No longer the career history and laundry list of responsibilities, successful resumes detail the candidates’ unique accomplishments. Just like these clients’ resumes did for them, your resume will answer hiring executives’ needs.
Your Executive Resume Is Your Calling Card
Your résumé is more than simply your career history. Your cover letter is more than a request for an interview. Each conveys not only that you are the right executive for the job—but that you are the only one for the job. If your executive resume delivers anything less, you can be assured that you will be passed over. A compelling resume and marketing message conveys that you are the unique, best solution to the hiring executive’s problem, and the sooner they can interview you for the role, the better.
Executive Resumes that Get Interviews
The following executive resume samples are real, with names, dates, and other identifying data changed to protect my clients’ anonymity. However, the people behind these documents are real, and they were, at one time, job seekers like you. Read my clients’ success stories; to read what they had to say about my work and about their renewed confidence in their ability to get the interviews they needed for the executive careers they wanted.
