This example executive-level 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. She was seeking CEO, President, or General Manager positions that would allow her to continue her remarkable success.
The 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.
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 general manager 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 of this general manager resume 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.
Each accomplishment is called out with a keyword phrase that help make the resume easier to read while improving performance in an ATS. The shaded text, bolding, and underlines make these stand out even more for the human reader.
