Administrative Assistant Resume Sample

Functionally formatted administrative assistant resume for an office administrator who had some complex issues to overcome in her work history.

As we’ve shown here and with many of our other sample resumes, sometimes it is necessary to think outside the box and be creative about how you write and structure a resume. This resume written for a professional administrative assistant had a work history with long gaps between jobs and a lot of diversity in the type of positions she had held. The reason: her husband had to move frequently for his work and so she followed him. Additionally. some of the business experience included on this resume example was actually more than 25 years old. A traditional resume format just didn’t work for her this office administrator, and so we came up with this very creative format that left out the dates. The missing dates are hardly noticeable and she quickly began to get calls for interviews.

I have already said thank you and in fact, I do not have the proper words in my vocabulary to express what I feel for your product. My resume is something out of this world! I also mentioned to XXXX that my daughter and I (here in RSA) have never yet seen such quality, the quality that is included in your end product. Yes indeed, I am more than grateful for what you did for me. I have already shown it to a number of people in this country; people who are planning moves to the USA. Your website, your name, your numbers are all readily being tossed around here, and I hope these people will soon be contacting you and your company. Thank you once again for a super superior resume!

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.

I just wanted to personally thank you for the incredible resume you prepared for me! Yesterday, I sent a resume to a company via email and I had a response waiting for me first thing this morning. When I first saw this in my inbox, I thought it was going to be a quick note indicating they received my resume, etc. This was not the case. The recruiter was pleased and wanted to set up a time for a phone interview and asked me to answer some basic questions. This is the first time I sent out my new resume and I received an immediate response. It takes alot for me to be satisfied and be able to respect individual's work. Needless to say, you have my utmost respect and I am extremely pleased! This was the best thing I could have ever done to enhance my career. Thank you once again!

My overall impression of your service is outstanding. Your staff was friendly, the service prompt, and the resume quality was excellent. I mailed out four resumes and was invited for four interviews. One of my interviewers, the one whose offer I did accept, said that this was the best put together resume that he had ever seen...
