Resume Writing: The Executive Resume

Filed under: Resume — admin @ 9:32 pm

There is a major difference between conventional resumes and executive resumes. Accomplishments are usually the center point of a conventional resume (ie, indicating how much money was saved, how sales increased, what processes were proposed, planned, initiated, implemented, or streamlined). The executive resume, on the other hand, has more than one focus. It alludes to the executive’s ability to drive profits (accomplishments) and the capacity to lead (that is, to blend various “soft” skills) an organization. Successes are easier to hone in on. The result is clear, often quantifiable. After all, either you penetrated a market or you didn’t, or either you were a top-performer or you weren’t. It is harder to capture emotional competencies on paper, to indicate who you are, what you stand for, how you relate to others, how you affect change within an organization.
