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.

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.

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.
