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.

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.

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.

The job search went well, and I have accepted a position with XXXX as an Executive Consultant. There is no doubt in my mind that the quality of my resume opened some doors. In addition to XXXX, I was a finalist for a CTO position at XXXXX, and I declined another offer from XXXX International. Only two things matter when trying to get your foot in the door: networking and the quality of your resume...Feel free to use me as a reference at any time. Thank you.
