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.

I just want to compliment you again on the fabulous service you provide. I am sure your new offerings will bring you even greater success. I am so glad I found you. I looked at other resume preparation services but yours was definitely the most compelling. Everyone I have shown my resume to is very impressed. I have given them your name and website (along with a glowing recommendation of course). I really can't thank you enough. I am very excited about the possibilities that await me. I guess I never realized the number of skills I have and things that I have accomplished until you organized them so coherently.

I have spent hours on the final draft that you sent, I also showed it to a dear friend and mentor who has seen 100X more resumes than I and hired and fired more high level execs than I will ever know, she was quite impressed!

...Although we have never met you and I are the team that will insure that my family is taken care of. All of this to say that I am extremely pleased with the final product! I have been too close to see how truly efficient and functional the document is. You fit a tremendous amount of "stuff" in a pretty concise package. The biggest problem with writing your own resume is objectivity, when to include something and when to leave it out, it should be easy (if I'm as good as the resume makes me sound), but it is very difficult. I learned a long time ago that all business is basically the same, but as humans we think that just because we are unique, our situations are unique and no one else can understand what we do, have done and/or need in business. You delivered a product that proves that you too have that understanding but more importantly know how to make us feel and look as unique as we are. The resume is outstanding, type style, layout, conciseness and its packed with good quality writing. I am very pleased. Our exchanges have been lively, thought provoking and insightful, I'm glad you are my side! Again thanks for everything, you will get referrals, and if its okay I will keep you posted on my success.

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.
