Advertising Agency Sample Resume

Purpose: Mid-career professional in the advertising industry seeking to advance and promote her career.

This sample resume is loaded with keywords important to this mid-career professional’s target industry and profession. Keywords are essential. If you are conducting a job search it is essential that you assume your resume will land in an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Simply put, ATS are the databases in which your resume is stored and (hopefully) retrieved based on keyword searches related to positions a recruiter or employer is trying to fill. It is common for applicants to try to include many of these important keywords in the profile and this resume is no exception. But even more keywords have been included by using them to categorize accomplishment statements. A tip: collect 6-12 job announcements for positions that would interest you. Go through them with a highlighter, highlighting all the important keywords used in each. Now go back to your resume and make sure you have used these keywords in the text.

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.

I am so pleased with the quality of your work and the service received that I have already passed your name and website address to several people!! It is amazing and quite impressive to me how you so easily interpret a couple of sentences in a profile and turn it into a professional document that articulates and describes my roles and responsibilities to a tee! Very rarely do I encounter such great customer service and response times to inquiries...that alone sold me on your services. I will continue working with you for as long as you stay in business or until I retire from working! Again, thanks so much on a great job...I'll keep you posted on my job search success.

I felt Nancy did a wonderful job and I enjoyed working with her. The quality of the resume was far beyond anything that I could have ever created myself. This was my work experience, but Nancy gave my resume a life of its own. I would highly recommend your services. I really never thought that I would need a resume writing service, but its amazing what a professional writer can accomplish.
