Quick Resume Writing Tip: This sample executive resume illustrates that a resume can be longer than one or two pages if the content is compelling and relevant. Page length of an executive resume is an area of confusion to many people. The most important factor is that you use only as many pages necessary to convince the reader that you are an ideal candidate. Every word and element must have a purpose. Two or three pages are generally expected and acceptable for an experienced executive candidate. Three pages can also be appropriate for some experienced candidates in technical positions. The ability to present your qualifications on two or three pages demonstrates your ability to communicate clearly and focus on the relevant. If your writing is concise and your achievements compelling, and three pages are required to present your key qualifying skills and achievements, use three pages. Just remember that with each page you reduce the chances that the resume will be read thoroughly. While there are always exceptions to the rule, more than three pages are rarely necessary or effective.

It was hard to accept change when I'm so invested into the version I had prepared myself. Without question the change has been a benefit and I'm proud to stand on it....The new version is much clearer, more organized and significantly easier to read. I have great confidence it displays my abilities best. I hope to be back in a three or four years when I have more experience under my belt and I'm ready to move to another position.

I am extremely pleased and impressed with Michelle Dumas from Distinctive Documents. Michelle and her team merged all of my background documents, old resumes, and completed forms into an outstanding resume. However, she did much more. While absorbing all of my background information, she summarized all of my experience into one word, intrapreneur. That's impressive! Over the years, I have worked with some of the best writers, marketing, sales, and practice executives around the world. Michelle is definitely the best professional writer, I have ever engaged.

As my resume is reaching its final completion stage, I would like to thank you for your help. Nancy did a great job with my resume, and helped me figure out what exactly I wanted (which was a task on its own). Entering the professional world for the first time is daunting and scary and I feel more confident with the resources your company has provided.

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.
