Financial Services Resume Written for a Fundraising Executive

This financial services resume was written for a Wall Street trader who was targeting fundraising executive roles with hedge fund, private equity, and venture capital firms.  As is every resume we write at Distinctive Career Services, this financial services resume showcases the client’s most important and relevant accomplishments, and is full of quantified results to prove them.

Imagine how much less impactful and credible it would be to state that this client “Increased revenues for a major account significantly in the first year and produced growth annually for the larger account portfolio, year after year.”

That is an impressive statement, but it is far more impressive and credible to state: “Increased revenues 50% in the 1st year alone for a healthcare account and for 5 straight years grew the biotech and broader healthcare franchise 20% annually.” Numbers have power. Use them throughout your resume.

Financial Services Resume Writing Tips

This financial services resume layout is set up using columns in a table. This format is frequently requested by clients because it is eye-catching and easy to read. But, unless you have a strong understanding of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and how they “read” and store resumes, setting up a resume this way can wreak havoc and cause serious ATS issues. We highly recommend that if you are considering using tables in your resume, you consult with a skilled professional resume writing professional. While having a professional write your resume is an outstanding investment that we encourage you to consider, as a first step you may wish to schedule an evaluation and resume consultation.

We know it can be tempting to look for resume examples on the internet, then try to model your own after them. Please don’t! The most effective resumes are a reflection of a person, NOT just a collection of words on a piece of paper. Your resume MUST tell an AUTHENTIC and memorable story that illustrates YOUR brand and the unique promise of value that YOU bring to the workplace. We have included examples on our website to illustrate the quality and diversity of our work and they are protected by copyright.

Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner. I have been busy interviewing. I am on the brink of an offer in Boston and Pittsburgh. Boston is the role I'm hoping for. It is a great role with a world leading paper manufacturing company. I believe the resume and cover letter you prepared was very helpful in my job search. It clearly was far better than what was proposed by xxxxxxxxx consultants - the outplacement firm that I was working with. I got a lot of attention from headhunters after the first wave of your blast e-mail. Many discussions but nothing that came from it -- mostly match issues. Thanks for your support and I will keep in touch.

I have spent hours on the final draft that you sent, I also showed it to a dear friend and mentor who has seen 100X more resumes than I and hired and fired more high level execs than I will ever know, she was quite impressed!

...Although we have never met you and I are the team that will insure that my family is taken care of. All of this to say that I am extremely pleased with the final product! I have been too close to see how truly efficient and functional the document is. You fit a tremendous amount of "stuff" in a pretty concise package. The biggest problem with writing your own resume is objectivity, when to include something and when to leave it out, it should be easy (if I'm as good as the resume makes me sound), but it is very difficult. I learned a long time ago that all business is basically the same, but as humans we think that just because we are unique, our situations are unique and no one else can understand what we do, have done and/or need in business. You delivered a product that proves that you too have that understanding but more importantly know how to make us feel and look as unique as we are. The resume is outstanding, type style, layout, conciseness and its packed with good quality writing. I am very pleased. Our exchanges have been lively, thought provoking and insightful, I'm glad you are my side! Again thanks for everything, you will get referrals, and if its okay I will keep you posted on my success.

Michelle I was so right in choosing you as the author of my resume. I am incredibly pleased, no... more than that, blown away with your artistry and skill. It was always my objective to look this good on paper... why, I'd even hire me based on this presentation.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful job on my resume and cover letter! The difference I must say is night and day; it's really amazing:) I feel so much more confident distributing my resume now. Before, I was often hesitant to apply for more competitive jobs because I subconsciously didn't think my resume was up to "par", or worthy enough to distribute, especially to top tier jobs like Google, and other Fortune 500 jobs...Silicon Valley is known for its very competitive job market (and I must say it definitely lives up to this reputation) and before I felt that while I had the skills, experience, and drive to compete for a job here in the San Jose and San Francisco area, my resume did not allow me to show it. Now, with my new resume and cover letter, I feel so much more CONFIDENT that my resume will get me noticed in the more competitive jobs, which is exactly why I hired Distinctive Document's services! So, in this case, I did definitely get what I paid for :0) (This sounds so much like one of those accolades on your website lol but it's true!) I cannot thank you enough, and I cannot stop admiring my resume and cover letter...I love them that much!

I got this comment from an executive search firm that we are discussing an opportunity...“By the way, you have one of the sharpest resumes I’ve seen! The design is very professional and readable.
