How To Write An Executive Level Resume

executive resume

When you’re on the job hunt, having a standout resume is what can make you break you in your job search. A lackluster, poorly written resume can be the death knell of any prospective job, especially if the one you’re applying for is at the executive level. Because you’re applying for a top-tier position, companies are expecting your executive resumes to really wow them, and we can help.

Resume Writing Tips

Over the years, the best way to write and present your resume has changed, and writing an executive resume has always been a step above the rest. Executive resumes need to have a wow factor, need to stand out from the crowd, and need to be memorable.

Drafting Your Resume

When you’re writing your resume, don’t only list tasks. Your resume shouldn’t sound like a job description. Write about your achievements and accomplishments: the things that should differentiate you from the other candidates for the job. If you only write about your tasks, your resume won’t be any different from any other applicant. 

It’s also important to remember that you aren’t a recent college graduate! When you’re constructing your resume, you don’t have to include college information if it’s no longer relevant or if you’ve gained plenty of experience since then. If you have 20 years of experience in the field you’re applying for, leave the college involvement portion of your resume off. However, an exception may be made if you participated in lots of great excellent extracurriculars, especially anything relevant to the job you are applying for, such as being part of a university marketing association.

Proving Yourself in Your Resume

Your resume is more than just a list of your work experience. It’s a way to show your potential future employers how you’ve made the best of all of the opportunities presented to you. It’s a way to show that you are invested and involved in what you are trying to do, and it’s a way to show that you are keeping up with the times and trends.

In your resume, show your employer that you are not only a good fit for the company, but that you are a necessity. Show that hiring you is the absolute best decision that they can make, and know that when they check your resume and contact you for an interview, they’ve made the right choice.
