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.

Happy belated new year! I hope that things are going well for you and all the gang at Distinctive Documents. This note is to let you know that I’ve moved to Jacksonville where I have accepted a position with XXXX the title and escrow insurer. As such, I’ve moved back into operations and although it’s early in the game, things appear to be going well.

Michelle, et al., I want to thank you for your assistance during this last job search. Fortunately, I was able to make the change quickly and to a familiar locale. I’ve also referred a number of people to you as your resumes have always brought me luck. I was only out of work for 6 weeks and everyone said I had one of the best resumes they have ever seen.
