General Manager Resume

Example General Manager Resume for an Executive Job Seeker

This example general manager resume was written for an accomplished executive who had distinguished herself as a business turnaround, transformation, and growth expert over a long career.

This resume was written and designed to showcase her value proposition and high-ROI potential.  The text is packed with quantified accomplishments and results. Although the resume is three pages, the content is compelling and relevant and the presentation is strategically formatted to make it easy to read.

More General Manager Resume Writing Tips

As a rule of thumb, you don’t want to date your resume more than 10-20 years in the past. But, most executives have accomplishments early in their career that they are proud of and that are still relevant. The strategy we used in this resume, is one solution. The “Early Career Highlights” section of the resume allowed us to include some of her more impressive and relevant accomplishments, but without dates.

The quote near the top of the first page is a quote directly from this general manager/CEO candidate and it succinctly summarizes her leadership philosophy and reflects back on her personal brand as a business turnaround, transformation, and growth expert.

The blue and green color scheme adds some pop and makes the resume stand out in sea of black and white resumes, but it is subtle and sophisticated.

Great news ! After not much success with my job search I had your company rewrite my resume. Immediately after I received my resume from you I started to get interviews. Sometimes up to 3 different companies a week. After only 4 weeks of interviewing I am delighted to tell you today I have received a job offer for a wonderful job. Not only is a great company and location it is also a pay increase of 28%. I did the math and the cost of my resume has only 1% of my pay increase. The Human Resource Manager said that she literally received hundreds of resume and mine stood out among all of them. Thanks so much.

I took a look at your draft and I love it! I knew that if I had somebody write it for me it would be much better than what I could do... Thanks for your help, I look forward to hearing from you and FYI I'm telling my friends about you so look for more business from Texas.

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.
