This operations manager resume was written for an entrepreneurial executive with a strong technical background. She had managed 5 startup and early-stage growth companies as a member of the executive team.
The box at the top of the resume is calling out a quote directly from Jennifer, explaining her “personal brand” and value proposition in her own words: “You can’t bring a new company into the world without craziness; however you need to unravel that chaos if you wish to take that company from vision to successful reality. My value, as proven repeatedly, is to disentangle the crazy, solve core issues, and create a healthy and efficient culture in which to grow the company and realize vision.”
In some situations, using a quote like this can be very powerful.
The snapshot boxes convey Jennifer’s major contribution at each company in very succinct language. Specific accomplishments and results are also included. The shading behind the beginning of each accomplishment statement is an example of using design elements in strategic ways to draw the eye to the key points.
Notice that the eecutive summary that starts the resume is not just unjustified claims and soft skills, like many resumes. Instead, specific accomplishments are included to reinforce and prove the value proposition.
You may also notice that this resume is three pages. While two is the ideal, it is not smart to cut persuasive and relevant content just to keep your resume to two pages. In this case,the three pages were justified and well received in the job market.
