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.

Morning, Michelle, I have cc’d you on an e-mail to Nancy several minutes ago. I think that note pretty well sums up my response to your inquiry about how things are going! It has been a pleasure to work with you and your company. You’ve got a great thing going there. Very professional, accountable and so easy to work with.

The other email he refers to...

I really like the work you have done and I now understand how a pro like you can take a pretty good document to whole different level. Early on in my experience with your company, I was curious how my personal brand would come through. As my wife reviewed your work with me, she said ‘this is so YOU’. Mission accomplished! So, congratulations and thank you to you, Nancy, for a job well done. Please count me as a very satisfied customer and feel free to use me as a customer reference if the need should ever arise.

Most creative and excellent work, words fail me to express about this project. Really appreciate your work and I look forward to continuing with you through my friends and colleagues.

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.

C.O., Nevada

You're awesome! Due to my new resume I actually see myself as qualified and marketable. Now let's see if I can put it into action. Thanks so much Michelle.
