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. We have included examples on our website to illustrate the quality and diversity of our work and they are protected by copyright.

Michelle, you got me a 6 figure position in a major recession, thx!

Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner. I have been busy interviewing. I am on the brink of an offer in Boston and Pittsburgh. Boston is the role I'm hoping for. It is a great role with a world leading paper manufacturing company. I believe the resume and cover letter you prepared was very helpful in my job search. It clearly was far better than what was proposed by xxxxxxxxx consultants - the outplacement firm that I was working with. I got a lot of attention from headhunters after the first wave of your blast e-mail. Many discussions but nothing that came from it -- mostly match issues. Thanks for your support and I will keep in touch.

This is a response to your query concerning the value of your service. The first thing I have to say is the reason it has taken a while to respond is due to your service. The response has been great. I have received many confirmations, phone calls and have set interviews as a direct result. I have also recommended your service to a friend who is in a job search. As for ease of use - it could not be any easier. I recommend your service to any one.

It is so rare to find someone who does such great work, is so professional and is so accommodating. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoy working with you.

Michelle has a wonderful ability to pull lots of information into a concise, action-oriented resume. The first two people I sent mine to while networking both said WOW! I highly recommend her services.
