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.

The job search has ramped up into high gear since I starting using the resume you prepared for me. I interviewed today for a position as a Property Accountant with a real estate management company. My "skill set" was a great match with what they were looking for, so thanks for your efforts. I feel confident I will be offered the position. Thanks again, I'll keep you posted.

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.

Thank you so much for the great resume. Thomas did a superb job and should be commended for such. The resume looks great and Thomas made the entire process easy and smooth. I would like you to know that since I was laid off the day I returned the worksheet to you I was in a scramble to draft up my own just so that I would have something to use in my job search until I received my "Distinctive" resume. When I received my resume, I was blown away at how much better Thomas was able to present the same information. More than that though, my resume from Distinctive Documents is truly a confidence booster and for that I'll never be able to thank you enough. Please recognize Thomas for his great work and professionalism. And thank you, thank you, thank you! I will recommend your services to others without hesitation.

Hi Michelle, Just wanted to update you that I have accepted a position with a consulting company that focuses on sales force effectiveness. The resume and cover letter clearly caught attention with the managing partners. I called them and the one I talked to had a call to me on his 'to do' list...Thank you for the discussions and for the work you did on preparing me for the employment market. I really needed the expert advice and work on my resume since it had been so long since I even tried looking. Best of luck to you for a successful 2012.
