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.

As my resume is reaching its final completion stage, I would like to thank you for your help. Nancy did a great job with my resume, and helped me figure out what exactly I wanted (which was a task on its own). Entering the professional world for the first time is daunting and scary and I feel more confident with the resources your company has provided.

The job search has ramped up into high gear since I starting using the resume you prepared for me. I interviewed today for a position as a Property Accountant with a real estate management company. My "skill set" was a great match with what they were looking for, so thanks for your efforts. I feel confident I will be offered the position. Thanks again, I'll keep you posted.
