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.

Sharon was able to take a complex situation and mold it into a work of art. I cannot say enough good things about the way she did her job and the way she showed her concern about helping me get my resume and career changing transition points across. I felt very comfortable in relying on her expertise. She did an excellent job!

I am sure that my resume was not easy to put together. I provided a lot of information, some of which may not have been easy to relate to. Sharon was able to take that information and create a resume to fit the needs of myself and the companies I would apply to. The end result was a high quality, highly profession document.

When searching for a resume writing service, I was a bit apprehensive at first. Ordering and paying for a service without ever meeting the service provider face to face is something that I am very much not used to doing. I can now say that I am glad that I took the risk. From the beginning, everyone I spoke with was very helpful and professional. The follow-up contact was very good and I appreciated that. I also appreciated the worksheet, which did what it was intended to do; by the writer getting to know my background, and me coming to realize the depth of my background and accomplishments. The end result of my experience with your company was the attainment of a very professional resume, an increase in job search motivation, and the confidence in knowing that I am putting forth the best possible effort in making a good first impression and landing the right job.

I would absolutely recommend your services to friends, relatives and co-workers.

This is just a short note to let you know that I have been offered the position of Director of Educational and Administrative Technology for the XXXX XXXX XXXX...Feedback from some of the members of the selection committee revealed that they were "blown away" by the resume. Actually, they only had me in for a single interview. This leads me to believe that this particular employer took great credence on the ability of the resume to communicate in my absence. I consider your work very instrumental in both the success of landing the job, and in the ability to successfully assert a salary requirement that is significantly higher for this particular area of the country...You can be sure that you are a permanent part of my electronic rolodex. If anyone ever needs a top-quality resume, you can be sure that your name will be mentioned.
