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.

Michelle, It has been a pleasure to work with you on this project. I will be sure to recommend your services to my associates. I sought out someone like you to be able to put down on paper my experiences and you certainly delivered. It is funny how I could not have put my own life on paper better than someone who has not even met me face to face. Thanks a million.

Thank you so much for all the work you have done! Frankly, I dreaded the prospect of writing my resume initially. I hit upon the idea of finding someone else to do it and that process was no picnic either, till I found you! You have made this whole process so easy and pleasant. When I got the first draft of my resume I thought, "She must have sent me the wrong resume...who is this person?!". When I found my name and realized that the jobs and experiences were indeed mine, WOW was I amazed! That was the best money I ever spent! Here we are a year later with an update, and yet another excellent job. As much as I dislike changing jobs at least I know that the resume writing will no longer be an issue, I have you! Thanks again.

I just want to let you know that this week I had four interviews and 3 job offers! One is with my mentor's company, XXXXX, another with XXXXX, and a third with XXXXX. The salary ranges are from $80-$100k. I'm deliberating now about my options, and will start "negotiations" this afternoon. Two job offers came on the same day (yesterday). Three of the interviews came from my on line responses to ads. The XXXX interview was arranged by my mentor who suggested I apply for a position. This all happened (the callbacks) between 1-3 days after I posted my resume. The VP at XXXXX who interviewed me said that he reads thousands of resumes, and that mine was really exceptional. He was talking about your work. Thank you!

(Received a few days later from the same client...)

I start August 4th as an assistant PM working first on a 1.5 billion (with a "b") dollar proposal, then off to the job site in September, working either on the XXXXXX renovation project or various cultural projects with musuems, libraries, etc. in XXXXX. Starting salary $90k with a review and increase to $95 by the end of the year. If I finish my PMP and LEED certifications, I will get an additional $3k for each certification.

I'm so happy that this happened so quickly and that it's such a great job! As I mentioned, the reason they called is because of the resume. They were also impressed by the biography, and apparently the interview went well too :) Thanks again for everything. I couldn't have done it without you.

I wanted to let you know I have accepted a new position as an account manager with Xxxxx. I definitely believe the custom written resume and cover letter made the difference. It got me the interview, actually multiple interviews, and the position I was offered matched my work history and background extremely well. I am very excited to start my new job and feel very thankful to have such a wonderful opportunity in these challenging times. Thanks again to you and your team. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

I wanted to say “Hello” and to provide you with a progress report. Thanks to the mailing in December, I have been in discussions with Xxxxxxx, an international banking consulting company. Actually, they contacted me the day the letter and resume was distributed. We are currently in discussions about my joining their company. Here’s the amazing part: in the initial questionnaire, I noted corporate finance and capital funding as my area of weakness. If things unfold in a positive manner for their business over the next couple of months, they would like me to join them in assisting entrepreneurial businesses finance their expansion leveraging the international financial markets. I could not have been in this position without your extraordinary crafting of my experience in such a compelling manner. They are willing to teach me the finance world since I bring so much technology and business operations experience to the table. Go figure! I have had one offer from a Florida based company which required me to move. Unfortunately, that is not on option of me. It’s great to know that my resume is getting traction. Recently, I had a call from a recruiter who said that in all of his years in the field, he had never see a resume format like mine. He LOVED IT!!! Of course I immediately gave him your name in the event that some of his clients might need your services. Thank you for your extraordinary gift and caring. I’ll send you periodic updates.
