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.

I am very satisfied w/ the work Marie did; I think it was helpful the way you've designed the process -- setting expectations around deliverable dates, etc... This kept things realistic in my own mind. Resume looks great, happy with the structure and I think Marie emphasized all of the right areas as we had discussed. Just to say that in addition to Marie's frequent follow-up, I think the emails from Michelle -- even if some were system generated -- gave the process a very personal feeling. I've held off when approached by other individuals or companies when they've pitched a resume re-write, b/c the whole process felt like I was buying a used car -- your team obviously accentuates the finer points of the soft sell, which explains why Execunet works with you. Thanks for the great work.

Sharon is a terrific partner in this process! She did an excellent job of reframing my experience (very difficult to do) and producing a "clean" resume. Excellent quality and writing (and I'm very, very particular about writing style and form). Every contact I had with your organization was highly professional and 100% customer focused. Thank you! I would love to have the opportunity to work with Sharon and your organization delivered a high-quality product in a timely, professional fashion.

I give Michelle my highest recommendations. Yes it may seem like a lot of money to invest but the difference can be made up on your first paycheck in your new career. It is my personal experience that you get "more than you pay for" with the quality Michelle provides...
