Administrative Assistant Resume Sample

Functionally formatted administrative assistant resume for an office administrator who had some complex issues to overcome in her work history.

As we’ve shown here and with many of our other sample resumes, sometimes it is necessary to think outside the box and be creative about how you write and structure a resume. This resume written for a professional administrative assistant had a work history with long gaps between jobs and a lot of diversity in the type of positions she had held. The reason: her husband had to move frequently for his work and so she followed him. Additionally. some of the business experience included on this resume example was actually more than 25 years old. A traditional resume format just didn’t work for her this office administrator, and so we came up with this very creative format that left out the dates. The missing dates are hardly noticeable and she quickly began to get calls for interviews.

Sharon is a terrific partner in this process! She did an excellent job of reframing my experience (very difficult to do) and producing a "clean" resume. Excellent quality and writing (and I'm very, very particular about writing style and form). Every contact I had with your organization was highly professional and 100% customer focused. Thank you! I would love to have the opportunity to work with Sharon and your organization again...you delivered a high-quality product in a timely, professional fashion.

I wanted to say “Hello” and to provide you with a progress report. Thanks to the mailing in December, I have been in discussions with Xxxxxxx, an international banking consulting company. Actually, they contacted me the day the letter and resume was distributed. We are currently in discussions about my joining their company. Here’s the amazing part: in the initial questionnaire, I noted corporate finance and capital funding as my area of weakness. If things unfold in a positive manner for their business over the next couple of months, they would like me to join them in assisting entrepreneurial businesses finance their expansion leveraging the international financial markets. I could not have been in this position without your extraordinary crafting of my experience in such a compelling manner. They are willing to teach me the finance world since I bring so much technology and business operations experience to the table. Go figure! I have had one offer from a Florida based company which required me to move. Unfortunately, that is not on option of me. It’s great to know that my resume is getting traction. Recently, I had a call from a recruiter who said that in all of his years in the field, he had never see a resume format like mine. He LOVED IT!!! Of course I immediately gave him your name in the event that some of his clients might need your services. Thank you for your extraordinary gift and caring. I’ll send you periodic updates.

I just wanted to personally thank you for the incredible resume you prepared for me! Yesterday, I sent a resume to a company via email and I had a response waiting for me first thing this morning. When I first saw this in my inbox, I thought it was going to be a quick note indicating they received my resume, etc. This was not the case. The recruiter was pleased and wanted to set up a time for a phone interview and asked me to answer some basic questions. This is the first time I sent out my new resume and I received an immediate response. It takes alot for me to be satisfied and be able to respect individual's work. Needless to say, you have my utmost respect and I am extremely pleased! This was the best thing I could have ever done to enhance my career. Thank you once again!
