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've been so busy with my job hunt, I haven't been able to write you! I've gotten responses from many recruiters and most of them mention how great my resume is. Eli Lilly is supposedly very interested in me right now, but I haven't heard from them. I had a rep recommend me for a position with them. Otherwise, I'm interviewing with a biotech company for a great sales position and I'm going through the process with Abbott, Merck and AstraZeneca. I actually received the call out of the blue from a district manager with AstraZeneca last night. He was looking over my resume because he just had a position open up in his territory and he wanted to talk with me. We connected this afternoon and he invited me to interview with them on Friday! ... I've had a lot of people ask me about my resume and I belong to many bulletin boards and discussion groups for pharmaceutical sales wanna-be's. Many people ask for resume advice and tips. I always point them your way! I'm so glad I picked you. I just can't say enough about what a wonderful job you did on both my resume and cover letter. My husband is definitely going to ask you to do his resume once I get a position. I hope some of these other people take my advice as well, it will make their job search so much easier!! Thanks again, really. I'll let you know when I land my position!

...then a couple of months later, L.C. wrote again to say:

I just wanted to send you a quick update. Everyone was definitely impressed and dazzled by the resume you created for me! Since I started my search, I've seen dozens of other sales resumes and yours left them ALL in the dust! Some of them were even professionally designed and I really can't believe how little they got for their money. Although I did receive offers from pharma companies, I finally accepted an offer from a medical device company! I'm now a medical sales consultant and I LOVE my new career! I want to thank you again for helping me get my foot in the door with landing interviews and for all of the stress you took off my shoulders by taking my resume on. Now that I have my dream job, my husband will definitely be contact you SOON!

Thank you so much for all the work you have done! Frankly, I dreaded the prospect of writing my resume initially. I hit upon the idea of finding someone else to do it and that process was no picnic either, till I found you! You have made this whole process so easy and pleasant. When I got the first draft of my resume I thought, "She must have sent me the wrong resume...who is this person?!". When I found my name and realized that the jobs and experiences were indeed mine, WOW was I amazed! That was the best money I ever spent! Here we are a year later with an update, and yet another excellent job. As much as I dislike changing jobs at least I know that the resume writing will no longer be an issue, I have you! Thanks again.

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.

J.M., Illinois

Hi Michelle: hope you are well. Just a head's up that I've referred about 10 people from Xxxxxxx to you. Hope a few turned into clients. I never let you know that thanks to your services I was 'one for one' -- one resume sent, one interview, and one job offer! That's all it took! Happy holidays.
