CEO Resume Sample

Example CEO resume written for a senior executive seeking a position as a CEO, President, or COO in the semiconductor, fiber optic, scientific instrument, space applications, or computer industries.

As you can see in this example CEO resume, whether you are a senior executive or a new graduate with nothing more than summer work experience, your resume should be written to emphasize your accomplishments and the value you have added as an employee in past positions. Your qualifications will simply serve as the baseline for the position, and many of the applicants will have the same or similar qualifications as you have.

Example CEO Resume for Executive

This example CEO resume clearly shows that it is your accomplishments and contributions that differentiate you. Have you helped a past employer make money? Have you done something that resulted in your employer saving money? Maybe you have increased efficiency in some way? Or have you solved some really pressing problem? These are the accomplishments that should be highlighted in your CEO resume. Always showcase the results of your actions, using numbers whenever possible.

But of almost equal importance in a CEO resume is the strategic impact that your accomplishments produced for the companies you led. Your CEO resume should be written to tell a powerful, compelling story that speaks to the potential benefits your future employer could expect.

Very good service; I was impressed with Marie's level of knowledge when asking HR related questions. I love the resume! Its format helps to highlight the important aspects of my skill sets and accomplishments.

I wanted to take a quick minute to thank you and your excellent associates for helping me in my job search. Prior to using your services I was averaging about one call from every 10th resume or application I submitted for a potential job. This had led me to increase the number of positions I was applying for which meant that I was going after positions that were not really right for me. After working with Distinctive Documents and reworking my resume I was getting responses from about 40% of the applications I was sending out, and I was only applying for positions that were directly in-line with my qualifications and expectations. Within one month of working with my new resume I was in the position of having multiple offers and have ended up accepting the perfect position. When this job was posted on LinkedIn (where my profile had also been updated by Distinctive Documents) the employer received over 300 applications and I was one of 6 people interviewed. My LinkedIn profile and resume were instrumental in getting me the interview, and in helping me secure my new job. Prior to utilizing your services I had a good resume that was producing results, but after working with your firm I have a great resume that is formatted in way that clearly demonstrates my value to prospective employers in a way that separates me from most other job seekers. The process of working through the worksheets and talking with my writer also helped me articulate my experiences in a value driven perspective that has served me exceptionally well during interviews. I have directly recommended your services to several colleagues and will continue to do so. I had been looking for a job for 6 months prior to working with Distinctive Documents and I found myself applying for positions for which I little excitement. After going through the entire process with your team I was able to narrow my search and land the perfect career position as a Xxxxxxx Manager with a major European company expanding operations in the U.S. market. Thanks so much for your help!
