Is color always appropriate to use in a resume? Especially an executive resume? Not always, but it is becoming more and more acceptable, especially when color is used in an understated and sophisticated way as shown in this “Best Executive Resume.”

Charts and graphs are especially eye-catching and are appropriate in almost all resumes, if you have the data for them. It is a way of presenting lots of numbers in an easy-to-understand manner while enhancing the visual appeal of the resume.

Also note the strong use of challenge-action-result stories in this resume, plus the snapshot box calling out the key strategic impact in each position. Stories help make your executive resume more interesting and help the reader make connections between their needs and your proven ability to deliver on those needs.

I just wanted to personally thank you for the incredible resume you prepared for me! Yesterday, I sent a resume to a company via email and I had a response waiting for me first thing this morning. When I first saw this in my inbox, I thought it was going to be a quick note indicating they received my resume, etc. This was not the case. The recruiter was pleased and wanted to set up a time for a phone interview and asked me to answer some basic questions. This is the first time I sent out my new resume and I received an immediate response. It takes alot for me to be satisfied and be able to respect individual's work. Needless to say, you have my utmost respect and I am extremely pleased! This was the best thing I could have ever done to enhance my career. Thank you once again!

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.

Hi Michelle! I'm very, very pleased with this document! It's accurate and very-well stated. This is truly a "Distinctive Document" as promised"! This is exactly the resume that I wanted! Now I know why your organization is the first hit on the internet when searching for a resume writer. I think the reason why it has taken me so long to complete this project is because subconsciously I've enjoyed the collaboration . Combined with my sense of trust since our first phone conversation, and your professionalism has been very comforting. Just wanted a minute to say what I really feel. Thanks!
