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.

I am extremely pleased with the cover letter and resume you produced for me. I have a very complex multi-faceted background that you were able to consolidate into a concise and very effective salable presentation of my skills. The documents you produced were far better than my originals and I feel were more than worth the price I paid for them. It was a pleasure working with you and I will be recommending you to my friends and associates.

Thought you'd like to know that I've just accepted a new position and am happy as can be. You should know that I began my search in earnest in the beginning of November and my success rate in getting calls from the companies whose postings (Monster and HeadHunter) I responded to was nothing short of phenomenal. Thanks a million Michelle for getting me noticed.

I give Michelle my highest recommendations. Yes it may seem like a lot of money to invest but the difference can be made up on your first paycheck in your new career. It is my personal experience that you get "more than you pay for" with the quality Michelle provides...

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.
