This IT executive’s original resume was detailed, wordy, and full of technical terms. She was targeting leadership roles in which the actual hands-on technical skills would not be as important. Instead, we wrote a resume that emphasizes her extraordinary leadership accomplishments.

When writing technical resumes. many people struggle to convert their accomplishments into results. But it is results that interest your potential employers most. This 1st place winning best IT resume was written to call out and really showcase results–especially those that impacted the bottom line. The “snapshot” sections used in the resume are a cutting-edge and popular technique for calling out the strategic impact of accomplishments.

This resume is also unique in that it was written for a client who was a U.S. expat, had spent her entire career overseas, and was now planning a return to the U.S.

Lisa, I LOVE IT!!!! Anyone who is considering a career move should be directing their resume needs to Distinctive. This is absolutely perfect! This kind of resume is exactly what I need, but lack the experience, knowledge and time to create. I am very good at what I do, but my knowledge and my abilities have their limitiations. Acceptance of my limitations is precisely what makes me very good. However, finding the people with the knowledge and abilities that I lack, is what makes me great. Thank you for building my resume with greatness!

What I can say is this, ten years ago I credit your resume for providing the edge over the competition with regards to "getting my foot in the door" after relocating to a new city. Within two weeks of distributing my resume I landed a 100K+ engineering position that I still hold today. What else can be said, that is a quantifiable edge. I also found that your service is absolutely as outstanding today as it was ten years ago.

After the initial shock of your wonderful work, I seriously looked at my cover letter. I believe it to be in great shape...I thank you for your assistance. I am quite impressed with what you have done. I honestly feel you have captured the essence of what I wanted to accomplish with a cover letter. Regardless of me getting this job, I want you to know, what may seem a small amount of work for you has left me proud of my own abilities. In addition, I would like to thank you for the suggestions you have made for my resume. I WILL put them to use.

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.
