Quick Resume Writing Tip: This sample resume for an Attroney/Lawyer illustrates that sometimes shorter is better. While a one-page summary resume (also known as a networking resume) or biography may be an effective tool when networking, or as a “leave behind” at interviews, it is usually an ineffective replacement for a well-written, dynamic professional resume. But in resume writing, rules are made to be broken when you have a good strategic reason to do that. This client had a very specific purpose for this resume and did not feel it was appropriate to share the details of his cases within it. Based on the individual circumstances of his search, we agreed. Instead, we wrote this powerful summary document that touched on all of the most important highlights without revealing anything confidential.

I would to thank you for the outstanding work you have done on my executive resume and cover letter. Both documents are perfect... In the future I don’t need to look to another company for updating my resume. I will only use the services of your company. The whole resume writing service is beyond comparison. I have never seeing such outstanding work, very friendly but high quality service.

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...

I am extremely pleased and impressed with Michelle Dumas from Distinctive Documents. Michelle and her team merged all of my background documents, old resumes, and completed forms into an outstanding resume. However, she did much more. While absorbing all of my background information, she summarized all of my experience into one word, intrapreneur. That's impressive! Over the years, I have worked with some of the best writers, marketing, sales, and practice executives around the world. Michelle is definitely the best professional writer, I have ever engaged.

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.

Last Monday I received a call from a low level recruiter that had read my old resume on the Institute of Packaging Engineers job site. She was looking for a candidate to fill a Packaging Engineer position that paid $60-$70,000 per year. I emailed her my new resume, the one you created, and immediately received a call from her boss. The boss was a much more savvy, high powered, recruiter. She had a much higher position in mind for me...The interview went very well. My second interview, this time with the CEO and the directors of the companies two current divisions is scheduled for this Wednesday...The position is for a Business Development Manager to start a new division. Once sales hit $4 million dollars the position will become the director of the division and expansion will begin in earnest. The salary for this position starts at $120,000 per year. I just can not thank you enough for the all the hard work you did to create such an outstanding resume and set of support letters. The recruiter received the recruiter letter and resume. The company received the resume and the thank you letter. Things are looking good to land the perfect job for my experience and aspirations.
