How do you write a management consultant resume?
The answer may be simpler than you think: The same way you write any other resume.
Think of your audience first. What is important to your audience? This senior management consultant was targeting positions with other consulting firms. In this consultant resume sample, we focused on the aspects of her experience that we determined were her greatest selling points. These included:
- Her accomplishments in developing client relationships and bringing in new business to the firms she worked for
- Her thought leadership in her field, leading to the development of new practice areas and more revenue
- Her skillful management and delivery of successful consulting engagements
- Her talent for mentoring and developing junior consultants
With the four selling points above in mind, we developed the sample consulting resume you see here. This consulting resume clearly calls out the extraordinary accomplishments of this management consultant in all of these areas. The result was a highly effective management consultant resume.
Note that rather than be redundant in describing job responsibilities for each position, similar positions were grouped together. This technique gave us more room for focusing the consulting resume on the most important points. Also, notice the balanced emphasis on results (to appeal to the human reader) and resume keywords and phrases (for optimal performance if your resume is entered into an ATS).
