Management Resume Sample

Management Resume Sample for the Healthcare/Medical Industries

The management resume below is an interesting resume sample because it does more than just illustrate the important elements of a management resume. It also shows a strategy that can be used when you are trying to return to an earlier career track.

This client began her career as a nurse and the first decade of her career was spent in the healthcare industry, advancing into more and more responsible nursing-related positions. Then suddenly circumstances changed and she was forced to give up her career and take over executive management of the family business. This was a huge leap for someone who previously had only held supervisory roles. but she rose to the challenge. Over the next 14 years, under her leadership, she tripled the business in size and volume.

As a management resume, this is an ideal sample resume because it illustrates the importance of emphasizing not just the scope of your management experience (for example, the number of locations and employees you have managed, and the size in revenue of the organization you managed), but your accomplishments and the lasting impact you had on the company or organization. A good management resume should focus on your management achievements, as shown in this sample resume. What did you improve, increase, reduce, streamline, strengthen, etc.?

But, as you may have noticed, this resume is unique for another reason. Now that she was selling the family business, she wanted to return to her previous career track in the healthcare/medical industries. But this time she wanted to enter the industry within a management role, using the strong management experience she had gained while managing and growing the family business. Thus, this management resume was written to strategically highlight the qualifications and skills that would allow her to achieve this career change.

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.

The job search went well, and I have accepted a position with XXXX as an Executive Consultant. There is no doubt in my mind that the quality of my resume opened some doors. In addition to XXXX, I was a finalist for a CTO position at XXXXX, and I declined another offer from XXXX International. Only two things matter when trying to get your foot in the door: networking and the quality of your resume...Feel free to use me as a reference at any time. Thank you.

I've been so busy with my job hunt, I haven't been able to write you! I've gotten responses from many recruiters and most of them mention how great my resume is. Eli Lilly is supposedly very interested in me right now, but I haven't heard from them. I had a rep recommend me for a position with them. Otherwise, I'm interviewing with a biotech company for a great sales position and I'm going through the process with Abbott, Merck and AstraZeneca. I actually received the call out of the blue from a district manager with AstraZeneca last night. He was looking over my resume because he just had a position open up in his territory and he wanted to talk with me. We connected this afternoon and he invited me to interview with them on Friday! ... I've had a lot of people ask me about my resume and I belong to many bulletin boards and discussion groups for pharmaceutical sales wanna-be's. Many people ask for resume advice and tips. I always point them your way! I'm so glad I picked you. I just can't say enough about what a wonderful job you did on both my resume and cover letter. My husband is definitely going to ask you to do his resume once I get a position. I hope some of these other people take my advice as well, it will make their job search so much easier!! Thanks again, really. I'll let you know when I land my position!

...then a couple of months later, L.C. wrote again to say:

I just wanted to send you a quick update. Everyone was definitely impressed and dazzled by the resume you created for me! Since I started my search, I've seen dozens of other sales resumes and yours left them ALL in the dust! Some of them were even professionally designed and I really can't believe how little they got for their money. Although I did receive offers from pharma companies, I finally accepted an offer from a medical device company! I'm now a medical sales consultant and I LOVE my new career! I want to thank you again for helping me get my foot in the door with landing interviews and for all of the stress you took off my shoulders by taking my resume on. Now that I have my dream job, my husband will definitely be contact you SOON!

Hooking up with Michelle Dumas and Distinctive Documents three years ago was like adding rocket fuel to my career trajectory. I subsequently was promoted from senior writer to editorial creative director and then editor in chief with Muscle & Fitness, a major national fitness magazine. Concurrently, I also opened a series of new freelance writing accounts, including one with Men’s Health, the world’s largest men’s magazine, and signed three progressively more lucrative book deals, most recently with LL Cool J as my collaborator.In every instance, the resume Michelle initially created for me, and the lasting impression it leaves, cracked open the door. It’s an amazing confidence builder to sit down for an interview with the CEO of a major American publishing company and have him look down and say, “Wow--that’s a really impressive resume.” And the fact that a professional writer turns to her for assistance tells you how good she is.

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that hiring Michelle was the best investment I’ve ever made in my career. I probably have been repaid 100-fold for what I spent.

Above and beyond the quality of Michelle’s work, the way she goes about doing it is a revelation. Her adherence to process, deadlines and quality control is so unyielding that I’ve been inspired to apply it to my own work as well. When she says something, she inevitably holds herself to it, which is rare these days.

In sum, to anyone looking for a resume consultant, I give Michelle Dumas the highest recommendation I can possibly give to another person: A+, five stars, you name it. You won’t be disappointed.

Morning, Michelle, I have cc’d you on an e-mail to Nancy several minutes ago. I think that note pretty well sums up my response to your inquiry about how things are going! It has been a pleasure to work with you and your company. You’ve got a great thing going there. Very professional, accountable and so easy to work with.

The other email he refers to...

I really like the work you have done and I now understand how a pro like you can take a pretty good document to whole different level. Early on in my experience with your company, I was curious how my personal brand would come through. As my wife reviewed your work with me, she said ‘this is so YOU’. Mission accomplished! So, congratulations and thank you to you, Nancy, for a job well done. Please count me as a very satisfied customer and feel free to use me as a customer reference if the need should ever arise.
