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.

Last Monday I received a call from a low level recruiter that had read my old resume on the Institute of Packaging Engineers job site. She was looking for a candidate to fill a Packaging Engineer position that paid $60-$70,000 per year. I emailed her my new resume, the one you created, and immediately received a call from her boss. The boss was a much more savvy, high powered, recruiter. She had a much higher position in mind for me...The interview went very well. My second interview, this time with the CEO and the directors of the companies two current divisions is scheduled for this Wednesday...The position is for a Business Development Manager to start a new division. Once sales hit $4 million dollars the position will become the director of the division and expansion will begin in earnest. The salary for this position starts at $120,000 per year. I just can not thank you enough for the all the hard work you did to create such an outstanding resume and set of support letters. The recruiter received the recruiter letter and resume. The company received the resume and the thank you letter. Things are looking good to land the perfect job for my experience and aspirations.

While I did not know quite what to expect and was further worried about the material you had to work with, I found my resume draft to be the brightest light in my week...as advertised, "Distinctive Documents". I have never seen any other medical resume so uniquely done. Thank-you. I am amazed that you were able to take some of my answers and create such a wonderful piece of work..I almost didn't recognize myself!!!

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I will review your "custom tailored responses" and get back to you over the weekend. Not only will I be more than happy to endorse your services, but I would welcome personal contact with anyone considering using your services. As I am sure that you are aware, many people may feel skeptical about this type of service on line. I feel as though we have sat side by side at the same desk working on this project. Your relationship with me has been extremely personal, specific, and customized to meet my needs and certainly exceed my expectations. I can't thank you enough.

I am very happy with the work that has been done so far. Nancy was very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. I couldn't be happier. Thank you. My resume looks fantastic. It gives me the confidence I will need to get myself noticed. Thank you.

I wanted to get back with you and let you know that on Friday, I accepted a job for which I am very excited. I will start December 2, 2002 as the Vice President, Sales and Marketing for a company called XXXXXXX. They provide full service packages for XXXXXXXXX. I will also be the business unit manager for a new business they will launch in the coming months. Their services are based on providing the very best and comprehensive service at very competitive prices. It is a great opportunity to leverage my last 10 years in college and university relations and youth marketing. It is also located right here in XXXXX, about four miles from my house! There will be some international travel (very exciting) but there won't be the heavy domestic travel that I've had for the last 7+ years. And so I am now embarking on my first extended vacation since college. This feels like such a luxury. I want to sincerely thank you for all of your help through this process. The resume that you created was absolutely critical in my landing this position. I had more than a half a dozen interviews within weeks of circulating my resume, was a finalist for three positions and was offered two positions. The one that I accepted is without a doubt the best fit. I am truly thankful and feel very blessed to have had my search turn out this way. I hope all is well with you and I will continue to recommend your services very highly.
