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.

My opportunity search is going reasonably well. I have had about 6 agencies submit me to about 10 openings. Half of those agencies I had not worked with previously and had to go interview with them to prove that I can dress myself correctly etc. All of them were pleased with the new resume. One just couldn't stop saying "wow".

Two of the agencies asked for info on where I had it done and I gave them the pertinent details. I believe they were interested in using your services for some of their clients vs having someone in house or local, especially after seeing the spectacular job you did on mine.

Of the 10 openings they submitted my resume to, I have had one two-hour interview (managers in a different city) and three company site interviews. I believe I have a good chance of receiving an offer from the last one I did of these on Friday.

In addition to the agencies, I have researched approximately 40 companies that looked interesting and submitted my resume directly to them via email (75%) and fax (25%). For handful that were especially interesting, I spent some extra effort on company research and customized the blind-submittal letter to target them and also found operations managers email addresses. Bypassed the HR department and careers@/jobs@ generic buckets. None of these direct contacts had a relevant position advertised on their website or any of the job boards . . . Of all of these, one of them has responded favorably and has given me two rounds of interviews thus far. They are in the process of drafting a contract offer, which I hope to see soon. This was a company that didn't even know they were in need of someone like me before my resume/letter came floating into their view. :-)

Very happy with the results thus far. I'll definitely keep plugging your services when appropriate in the future.

(Then several days later from above client)

Just dropping you a quick note to let you know that I have received the first contract draft for my new position. It will be a one year contract at a leading Canadian fixed-wireless internet service provider. Decent rate, decent people, interesting work all await me next week. This was a place that I had mentioned previously that didn't have any positions of this type advertised at all, and didn't consciously know they needed my help, before the wonderful new resume landed in front of them. I attribute my landing of this contract almost 100% to the super job you did on my resume. I had the raw materials, but you sure got them to "clean up nice" :-)

The quality of service by my resume writer Lisa was excellent...Both products prepared for me were amazing products. I am very happy with the results...The customer service and attention to detail of all respresentatives that I dealt with during the ordering, production, and editing/revision process were absolutely professional, courteous, and pleasant to experience

Lisa, I LOVE IT!!!! Anyone who is considering a career move should be directing their resume needs to Distinctive. This is absolutely perfect! This kind of resume is exactly what I need, but lack the experience, knowledge and time to create. I am very good at what I do, but my knowledge and my abilities have their limitiations. Acceptance of my limitations is precisely what makes me very good. However, finding the people with the knowledge and abilities that I lack, is what makes me great. Thank you for building my resume with greatness!
