Example Program Manager Resume

Program Manager Resume | Project Management | Technology Operations

This client with extensive program, project, and technology operations experience both in the private sector and the military, was exceptionally well qualified for director and VP-level positions. Unfortunately, his job titles didn’t reflect that and were holding him back.

This resume was written to call out and really showcase the skills and experiences that were relevant for the higher level positions he was targeting. Subtle strategies were used, such as deemphasizing his job titles by their placement and formatting. This allowed us to draw the eye and attention to the points we wanted the reader to notice, and away from what we didn’t want them to notice.

The Value-Offered Summary was a strategy we used to allow us to emphasize the relevant accomplishments that would have otherwise been lost in the text–likely on the second page of the resume.

The accomplishment statements all highlight the results of each accomplishment, proving that hiring this professional will produce a strong return on investment.

This client’s extensive military experience was summarized as it was quite old. However, we chose to include it because the client had some really impressive accomplishments during that time.

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 am extremely pleased with the cover letter and resume you produced for me. I have a very complex multi-faceted background that you were able to consolidate into a concise and very effective salable presentation of my skills. The documents you produced were far better than my originals and I feel were more than worth the price I paid for them. It was a pleasure working with you and I will be recommending you to my friends and associates.

I wanted to let you know that in an interview today (large project management/consulting firm), I was complemented on the quality of my resume. The interviewer said it was one of the best he's seen. I followed up with the "thank you for the interview letter" which, is excellent as well. I thought you should know what an impact your work is making in my career search and I'm grateful that out of all the choices that I had, I selected your firm (and you). Anyway, it appears that I'm on my way, thanks to your ability to put my career and value proposition on 2 sheets of paper!

I wanted to take a quick minute to thank you and your excellent associates for helping me in my job search. Prior to using your services I was averaging about one call from every 10th resume or application I submitted for a potential job. This had led me to increase the number of positions I was applying for which meant that I was going after positions that were not really right for me. After working with Distinctive Documents and reworking my resume I was getting responses from about 40% of the applications I was sending out, and I was only applying for positions that were directly in-line with my qualifications and expectations. Within one month of working with my new resume I was in the position of having multiple offers and have ended up accepting the perfect position. When this job was posted on LinkedIn (where my profile had also been updated by Distinctive Documents) the employer received over 300 applications and I was one of 6 people interviewed. My LinkedIn profile and resume were instrumental in getting me the interview, and in helping me secure my new job. Prior to utilizing your services I had a good resume that was producing results, but after working with your firm I have a great resume that is formatted in way that clearly demonstrates my value to prospective employers in a way that separates me from most other job seekers. The process of working through the worksheets and talking with my writer also helped me articulate my experiences in a value driven perspective that has served me exceptionally well during interviews. I have directly recommended your services to several colleagues and will continue to do so. I had been looking for a job for 6 months prior to working with Distinctive Documents and I found myself applying for positions for which I little excitement. After going through the entire process with your team I was able to narrow my search and land the perfect career position as a Xxxxxxx Manager with a major European company expanding operations in the U.S. market. Thanks so much for your help!

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.
