Quick Resume Writing Tip: This sample resume for an Attroney/Lawyer illustrates that sometimes shorter is better. While a one-page summary resume (also known as a networking resume) or biography may be an effective tool when networking, or as a “leave behind” at interviews, it is usually an ineffective replacement for a well-written, dynamic professional resume. But in resume writing, rules are made to be broken when you have a good strategic reason to do that. This client had a very specific purpose for this resume and did not feel it was appropriate to share the details of his cases within it. Based on the individual circumstances of his search, we agreed. Instead, we wrote this powerful summary document that touched on all of the most important highlights without revealing anything confidential.

I am very satisfied w/ the work Marie did; I think it was helpful the way you've designed the process -- setting expectations around deliverable dates, etc... This kept things realistic in my own mind. Resume looks great, happy with the structure and I think Marie emphasized all of the right areas as we had discussed. Just to say that in addition to Marie's frequent follow-up, I think the emails from Michelle -- even if some were system generated -- gave the process a very personal feeling. I've held off when approached by other individuals or companies when they've pitched a resume re-write, b/c the whole process felt like I was buying a used car -- your team obviously accentuates the finer points of the soft sell, which explains why Execunet works with you. Thanks for the great work.

Michelle has a wonderful ability to pull lots of information into a concise, action-oriented resume. The first two people I sent mine to while networking both said WOW! I highly recommend her services.

Laura was a pleasure to work with. She address all my needs and was blown away how my new resume just "POPS" and gets your attention. I will recommend to my family, friends, and colleagues about how you can launch and re-launch careers. Thanks.

I got this comment from an executive search firm that we are discussing an opportunity...“By the way, you have one of the sharpest resumes I’ve seen! The design is very professional and readable.

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.
