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 wanted to give you a heads up. I've passed your name onto a few friends and and her husband may contact you shortly for resume services. also has two girlfriends which may contact you also, but she can fill you in on that when she contacts you. I've also forwarded your information to another of my colleagues here at . Additionally, I've told that I intend to leave and have signed a temporary contract with them through the end of the year. As part of my agreement to "hang around" to allow them to transition stuff over and find a replacement, they've provided executive outplacement services. I'm working with and , my "career coach" may contact you also. He stated that he had never seen such a well phrased resume, and I told him how happy I had been with your services and turnaround. does not have anyone as experienced as you in this area. Regarding my job search. I've received two offers and turned both down. A few other interviews, but nothing I wanted to pursue. I took the summer off the job search and intend to re-enter the market at the end of this week or next with hopes of finding a job no earlier than January or preferably June/July. I have some plans to travel, relax, enjoy life, etc. while I still have no solid ties or obligations. I'll let you know how things go.

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.

My overall impression of your service is outstanding. Your staff was friendly, the service prompt, and the resume quality was excellent. I mailed out four resumes and was invited for four interviews. One of my interviewers, the one whose offer I did accept, said that this was the best put together resume that he had ever seen...

Thought you'd like to know that I've just accepted a new position and am happy as can be. You should know that I began my search in earnest in the beginning of November and my success rate in getting calls from the companies whose postings (Monster and HeadHunter) I responded to was nothing short of phenomenal. Thanks a million Michelle for getting me noticed.

I am a very satisfied customer as result of the resume writing that Laura completed for me. The content for the two versions of my resume was excellent. I think she emphasized all the best elements of my professional experience. I particularly like her style of writing! THANK YOU Laura!
