Networking Resume Samples

Purpose: To use whenever a shorter, more succinct version of your resume might be appropriate (such as at networking meetings or for your networking contacts)

Quick Tips for Writing a Networking Resume:

The above documents are sample networking resumes. A networking resume is a document that is useful to have and use in addition to your full resume. Page length is an area of confusion to many people. The most important factor is that you use only as many pages necessary to convince the reader that you are an ideal candidate. Every word and element must have a purpose. Two pages are generally expected for an experienced candidate (and three pages, in some cases). The ability to present your qualifications on two (or three) pages demonstrates your ability to communicate clearly and focus on the relevant. If your writing is concise and your achievements compelling, and three pages are required to present your key qualifying skills and achievements, use three pages. Just remember that with each page you reduce the chances that the resume will be read thoroughly. On the other hand, a one-page resume (known as a networking or summary resume) can be useful in some situations…especially at networking meetings. While this summary document wouldn’t take the place of your more complete resume, it is an important “tool” to have in your career marketing portfolio, to use as a leave-behind at interviews or to hand out when a more lengthy resume might be awkward.

Very good service!!! Nancy was very responsive and available to answer my questions. She also reached out to me in order to have a better understanding of my career experiences and what I wanted to highlight! This is my first professional resume and I am very happy with the final product. I think that it represents my accomplishments and highlights my strengths. I have already recommended you to a couple of my friends!!!

Michelle, I just wanted you to know that a recruiter commented positively on my resume today...she said the body of the resume was impeccable, the best she has seen in a long time.

My background is a particularly difficult one to handle in a resume both due to my having multi-functional and multi-industry experience, and my having had 9 positions in 25 years, none of which could be eliminated due to my having started my career at the mid-management level after graduate school. She can certainly do anyone's resume professionally and expertly, since she was able to write mine. Her questionnaire took a great deal of time but was critical in enabling her to do her work well. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay her is that before I hired her, I had just had my resume rewritten by another writer who has written a book on executive resumes, and that resume was not nearly the quality of her work, with an executive recruiter I know letting me know that her version was "MUCH better". My only reluctance in providing this testimonial is that it will encourage others to utilize her services, decreasing my "edge" over other candidates by having a resume prepared by Ms. Dumas.

Hooking up with Michelle Dumas and Distinctive Documents three years ago was like adding rocket fuel to my career trajectory. I subsequently was promoted from senior writer to editorial creative director and then editor in chief with Muscle & Fitness, a major national fitness magazine. Concurrently, I also opened a series of new freelance writing accounts, including one with Men’s Health, the world’s largest men’s magazine, and signed three progressively more lucrative book deals, most recently with LL Cool J as my collaborator.In every instance, the resume Michelle initially created for me, and the lasting impression it leaves, cracked open the door. It’s an amazing confidence builder to sit down for an interview with the CEO of a major American publishing company and have him look down and say, “Wow--that’s a really impressive resume.” And the fact that a professional writer turns to her for assistance tells you how good she is.

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that hiring Michelle was the best investment I’ve ever made in my career. I probably have been repaid 100-fold for what I spent.

Above and beyond the quality of Michelle’s work, the way she goes about doing it is a revelation. Her adherence to process, deadlines and quality control is so unyielding that I’ve been inspired to apply it to my own work as well. When she says something, she inevitably holds herself to it, which is rare these days.

In sum, to anyone looking for a resume consultant, I give Michelle Dumas the highest recommendation I can possibly give to another person: A+, five stars, you name it. You won’t be disappointed.

Michelle has a wonderful ability to pull lots of information into a concise, action-oriented resume. The first two people I sent mine to while networking both said WOW! I highly recommend her services.
