The client’s personal brand and unique value proposition is promoted strongly in the executive profile section of the resume. Sarah was extraordinarily accomplished and her career stories of challenges, actions, results, and strategic impact offered proof of her claim to “drive sweeping global culture changes, solving seemingly impossible problems while delivering optimal results to both the top-and bottom-line.”

If you read carefully, you will see that we don’t just make claims that Sarah has the qualifications noted in the profile section of the resume. Rather, the body of the resume proves them with concrete examples of the qualification in action. This is essential and is the element missing from most resumes.  For example, we note in the profile section that Sarah is skilled in ” Multicultural Team Leadership” and “Culture Change & Transformation.” But, we don’t stop there. We provide real examples, such as:

  • Engineered turnaround of group behaviors and restored positive outside perceptions of a highly talented but insular and “difficult-to-work” with team in Paris, enabling it to become the core center of the global Alvord effort.
  • Unified all of the best assets of Giambalvo Financial and Hagen into a cohesive offering (Alvord) that has been widely lauded as the first real, credible threat to the primary competition, delivering a new strategic platform to address a $5 billion combined business and positioned as an extraordinary engine of future growth for the company.

We know it can be tempting to look for resume examples on the internet, then try to model your own after them. Please don’t! The most effective resumes are a reflection of a person, NOT just a collection of words on a piece of paper. Your resume MUST tell an AUTHENTIC and memorable story that illustrates YOUR brand and the unique promise of value that YOU bring to the workplace. We have included examples on our website to illustrate the quality and diversity of our work and they are protected by copyright. If you need help writing your resume, it will be our pleasure to assist you.

Just wanted to thank you and Marie! Old resume wasn't getting results. The new resume you folks made has been getting hits like crazy! And just accepted a new position locally, thanks.

Thought you'd like to know that I've just accepted a new position and am happy as can be. You should know that I began my search in earnest in the beginning of November and my success rate in getting calls from the companies whose postings (Monster and HeadHunter) I responded to was nothing short of phenomenal. Thanks a million Michelle for getting me noticed.

What I can say is this, ten years ago I credit your resume for providing the edge over the competition with regards to "getting my foot in the door" after relocating to a new city. Within two weeks of distributing my resume I landed a 100K+ engineering position that I still hold today. What else can be said, that is a quantifiable edge. I also found that your service is absolutely as outstanding today as it was ten years ago.

After the initial shock of your wonderful work, I seriously looked at my cover letter. I believe it to be in great shape...I thank you for your assistance. I am quite impressed with what you have done. I honestly feel you have captured the essence of what I wanted to accomplish with a cover letter. Regardless of me getting this job, I want you to know, what may seem a small amount of work for you has left me proud of my own abilities. In addition, I would like to thank you for the suggestions you have made for my resume. I WILL put them to use.

I just want to let you know that this week I had four interviews and 3 job offers! One is with my mentor's company, XXXXX, another with XXXXX, and a third with XXXXX. The salary ranges are from $80-$100k. I'm deliberating now about my options, and will start "negotiations" this afternoon. Two job offers came on the same day (yesterday). Three of the interviews came from my on line responses to ads. The XXXX interview was arranged by my mentor who suggested I apply for a position. This all happened (the callbacks) between 1-3 days after I posted my resume. The VP at XXXXX who interviewed me said that he reads thousands of resumes, and that mine was really exceptional. He was talking about your work. Thank you!

(Received a few days later from the same client...)

I start August 4th as an assistant PM working first on a 1.5 billion (with a "b") dollar proposal, then off to the job site in September, working either on the XXXXXX renovation project or various cultural projects with musuems, libraries, etc. in XXXXX. Starting salary $90k with a review and increase to $95 by the end of the year. If I finish my PMP and LEED certifications, I will get an additional $3k for each certification.

I'm so happy that this happened so quickly and that it's such a great job! As I mentioned, the reason they called is because of the resume. They were also impressed by the biography, and apparently the interview went well too :) Thanks again for everything. I couldn't have done it without you.
