Why do I need a resume service that specializes in executive resumes?
If you’re like most of the executives we work with, your career history is both lengthy and impressive. Through promotional advancement and progressively responsible assignments, you have amassed a considerable amount of experience. The challenge for many writers is one of balance. How do you boil down all of this experience to keep the resume succinct and inviting to read but at the same time pack it with verifiable achievements and important industry keywords?
At ExecResumes.com, we have the answer. Capturing and synthesizing executive backgrounds into powerful, compelling, and concise career marketing documents is our specialty. Just like you, our years of experience have qualified us as experts in our field. We know precisely how to market your strengths; downplay potential weaknesses; maintain an appropriate, executive-level tone; incorporate crucial keywords and search terms into your document; and design the resume so that it is pleasing to the eye and memorable to the reader.
Are your writers certified?
Yes. Your resume will be prepared by a professional resume writer with CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer) and/or NCRW (Nationally Certified Resume Writer) credentials.
What other qualifications do your writers have?
Professional Affiliations: Our writers are full-time professionals who are serious about the field of resume writing. They maintain active membership in organizations including the Professional Association of Resume Writers (PARW) and the National Resume Writers’ Association (NRWA).
Years of Experience: Each of our writers has at least 15 years of experience in writing, marketing, and graphic design. They are backed by proven success in preparing interview-generating resumes for CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CIOs, CTOs, presidents, VPs, and senior-level managers from virtually every career field and industry (including engineering, high-tech, sales, retail, wholesale, logistics, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, marketing, entertainment, finance, law, science, insurance, and education–just to name a few). It takes time to learn what works and what does not, and we wouldn’t think of pairing you with a resume writer who wasn’t an expert in the field.
Academic Credentials:All of our writers hold bachelor degrees (most majored in marketing, communications, public relations, English, or counseling). The majority have earned master’s degrees. They receive ongoing training in resume writing/design and industry trends through participation in educational programs sponsored by PARW and NRWA.
Publications and Presentations:More than 150 of our writers’ resumes have been featured in ten career and resume books, including McGraw Hill’s The Career Change Resume and JIST Works’ Professional Resumes for Executives, Managers & Other Administrators. Resume samples by our writers are also featured on leading websites including Monster and Microsoft. Our resume writers are frequent article contributors on such topics as resume writing, resume design, and job search strategy to business and national publications and leading career websites. Many are also featured speakers at national resume writing conferences and symposiums.
