Quick Resume Writing Tip: This sample CFO resume illustrates the importance of keywords and shows a creative way that you can incorporate keywords into your resume. Keywords are incorporated into this example resume using tables that list them to the left of the accomplishments they are represented by. Keywords are the words and phrases that an employer searching through a database of resumes would use to find a person with your qualifications – or to find a person seeking the type of job you are targeting. Keywords are most commonly nouns or noun phrases. Here is a tip — if you were searching a database for resumes of people qualified to do the type of work you are seeking (and in the type of industry if you are targeting an industry), what words would you enter as search terms? You need to make sure all the relevant words are included in your resume. See our many other sample resumes for more ideas about how to incorporate keywords into your resume.

Thank you for checking in to see how things are going. Sharon sent me the initial draft and I must say I'm quite happy with the result. I'm going through it to see if I want any changes done, but I doubt I will want anything major changed. I am so glad my friend recommended distinctive web for me! And I am now recommending it to my uncle who also wants to work on his CV. I already sent my cv sample (the before and after) and he was impressed :)

Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced as a result. There is no question in my mind that this distinctive resume provided me with far more opportunities to talk to recruiters and principals than I would have had otherwise. More than once I heard recruiters say "I pick out two resumes from over 1000 internet responses and you were one of them."

Bottom line I achieved exactly what I was looking for: in terms of position, location, and income AND I had choices in terms of multiple offers. It all started by getting someone to notice my resume in with a thousand others.

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!

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.

C.A., California

Outstanding quality and professionalism. The writer was excellent (hope to again work with her on future updates, focus resumes, thank you letters, etc.) She was creative, thought provoking and openly shared her knowledge and experience. I could not be more satisfied with the end result. Great investment and will certainly recommend your services to others.
