Investment Banking Resume

Purpose: Example resume written for an investment banking executive

Quick Resume Writing Tip: This resume example illustrates in a very clear way, the concept of using the Challenge-Action-Result (CAR) style in your resume. Rather than just listing out your job responsibilities and accomplishments, rewrite your employment section to tell a compelling “story.” For the maximum impact, your accomplishments should be presented as concise “success studies” complete with challenge faced, action taken, immediate result, and strategic importance. By conveying your accomplishments in this “story” manner, you make a connection with the reader of your resume and make yourself far more memorable than all the other job candidates. Additionally, by illustrating how you have solved problems and produced results for past employers, you show your potential to do the same for future employers.

Michelle, I just wanted you to know that a recruiter commented positively on my resume today...she said the body of the resume was impeccable, the best she has seen in a long time.

P.H., New Hampshire

My background is a particularly difficult one to handle in a resume both due to my having multi-functional and multi-industry experience, and my having had 9 positions in 25 years, none of which could be eliminated due to my having started my career at the mid-management level after graduate school. She can certainly do anyone's resume professionally and expertly, since she was able to write mine. Her questionnaire took a great deal of time but was critical in enabling her to do her work well. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay her is that before I hired her, I had just had my resume rewritten by another writer who has written a book on executive resumes, and that resume was not nearly the quality of her work, with an executive recruiter I know letting me know that her version was "MUCH better". My only reluctance in providing this testimonial is that it will encourage others to utilize her services, decreasing my "edge" over other candidates by having a resume prepared by Ms. Dumas.

M.M., New York

What I can say is this, ten years ago I credit your resume for providing the edge over the competition with regards to "getting my foot in the door" after relocating to a new city. Within two weeks of distributing my resume I landed a 100K+ engineering position that I still hold today. What else can be said, that is a quantifiable edge. I also found that your service is absolutely as outstanding today as it was ten years ago.

C.A., California

I wanted to thank you for your efforts with my resume and mailing. Several days after the Internet mailing was sent, I received a call from a fantastic company. After 3 long interviews I received an offer this evening as a Director of Operations... I will be a Vice President within a year! It's public and offered a +90K salary plus with Equity. Thank you for doing a fantastic job. Keep in touch! I will update my background with you every so often.

B.G., New Jersey

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.
