Financial Services Resume Written for a Fundraising Executive

This financial services resume was written for a Wall Street trader who was targeting fundraising executive roles with hedge fund, private equity, and venture capital firms.  As is every resume we write at Distinctive Career Services, this financial services resume showcases the client’s most important and relevant accomplishments, and is full of quantified results to prove them.

Imagine how much less impactful and credible it would be to state that this client “Increased revenues for a major account significantly in the first year and produced growth annually for the larger account portfolio, year after year.”

That is an impressive statement, but it is far more impressive and credible to state: “Increased revenues 50% in the 1st year alone for a healthcare account and for 5 straight years grew the biotech and broader healthcare franchise 20% annually.” Numbers have power. Use them throughout your resume.

Financial Services Resume Writing Tips

This financial services resume layout is set up using columns in a table. This format is frequently requested by clients because it is eye-catching and easy to read. But, unless you have a strong understanding of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and how they “read” and store resumes, setting up a resume this way can wreak havoc and cause serious ATS issues. We highly recommend that if you are considering using tables in your resume, you consult with a skilled professional resume writing professional. While having a professional write your resume is an outstanding investment that we encourage you to consider, as a first step you may wish to schedule an evaluation and resume consultation.

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.

I am very satisfied w/ the work Marie did; I think it was helpful the way you've designed the process -- setting expectations around deliverable dates, etc... This kept things realistic in my own mind. Resume looks great, happy with the structure and I think Marie emphasized all of the right areas as we had discussed. Just to say that in addition to Marie's frequent follow-up, I think the emails from Michelle -- even if some were system generated -- gave the process a very personal feeling. I've held off when approached by other individuals or companies when they've pitched a resume re-write, b/c the whole process felt like I was buying a used car -- your team obviously accentuates the finer points of the soft sell, which explains why Execunet works with you. Thanks for the great work.

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.

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...

Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced as a result. There is no question in my mind that this distinctive resume provided me with far more opportunities to talk to recruiters and principals than I would have had otherwise. More than once I heard recruiters say "I pick out two resumes from over 1000 internet responses and you were one of them."

Bottom line I achieved exactly what I was looking for: in terms of position, location, and income AND I had choices in terms of multiple offers. It all started by getting someone to notice my resume in with a thousand others.

Marie: A few months ago you rewrote my resume for me. I can't say how grateful and thankful I am that I chose to let Distinctive Documents assist with my new resume. I accepted a position with Xxxxxx and I leave for Xxxxx on 4 Sept. Now I will be able to pay my home off in a couple of months and get one of my rental properties paid off within the year. Thanks again & GOD BLESS!
