General Manager Resume

Example General Manager Resume for an Executive Job Seeker

This example general manager resume was written for an accomplished executive who had distinguished herself as a business turnaround, transformation, and growth expert over a long career. She was seeking CEO, President, or General Manager positions that would allow her to continue her remarkable success.

This resume was written and designed to showcase her value proposition and high-ROI potential.  The text is packed with quantified accomplishments and results. Although the resume is three pages, the content is compelling and relevant and the presentation is strategically formatted to make it easy to read.

More General Manager Resume Writing Tips

As a rule of thumb, you don’t want to date your resume more than 10-20 years in the past. But, most executives have accomplishments early in their career that they are proud of and that are still relevant. The strategy we used in this resume, is one solution. The “Early Career Highlights” section of the resume allowed us to include some of her more impressive and relevant accomplishments, but without dates.

The quote near the top of the first page is a quote directly from this general manager/CEO candidate and it succinctly summarizes her leadership philosophy and reflects back on her personal brand as a business turnaround, transformation, and growth expert.

The blue and green color scheme adds some pop and makes the resume stand out in sea of black and white resumes, but it is subtle and sophisticated.

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...

I am so pleased with the quality of your work and the service received that I have already passed your name and website address to several people!! It is amazing and quite impressive to me how you so easily interpret a couple of sentences in a profile and turn it into a professional document that articulates and describes my roles and responsibilities to a tee! Very rarely do I encounter such great customer service and response times to inquiries...that alone sold me on your services. I will continue working with you for as long as you stay in business or until I retire from working! Again, thanks so much on a great job...I'll keep you posted on my job search success.

Professional which I believe sets distinctive apart from others. Given my background it's hard to find that level versus those looking to cash in. It was very easy to discern that Distinctive was professional. The resume was excellent; very professional and I could see a huge difference between what I had prepared and what Lisa did--so much better

J.G., Utah

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
