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.

You're awesome! Due to my new resume I actually see myself as qualified and marketable. Now let's see if I can put it into action. Thanks so much Michelle.

I have been waiting before writing to give you the great news...I applied to about eight recruitment agencies with my resume attached, all on the Internet. Within a few days I was contacted and asked to go for an interview at a company only 35 miles away. It is 3.5 years old and sells consultancy at a very senior level in large corporations...This week I received the offer letter...What has become very clear in this process is the incredible value of a good resume. Because you made it abundantly clear what I had achieved through a "messy" but interesting career path, this recruitment agency was immediately able to connect my past experience with the vacancy they knew needed me. I did not need to explain the details of my past but rather was able to continually point out where my past benefited or suited the vacancy being offered. It meant that I was able to concentrate on selling myself rather than explaining myself away...So, to say thank you seems so inadequate. But say it, I will. Thank you for doing such a good job. I have to say I did not think I would find another job at my age, but with a combination of good luck and a good resume, I made it....Initially I thought your service was expensive, but given the results, no one could complain. Thank you again.

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.

Michelle, A quick note from a VERY happy client...Just had an opportunity to go through the first draft of Sharon's work. I am so impressed. She has done a wonderful job. And mine is not one that is copy and paste from others like me. My current job, in particular, is pretty esoteric. And, Sharon NAILED it! Look forward to wrapping this up. In the meantime, thank you for pairing me with such a great professional! Happy to help on referrals. Great product, great value and great experience so far.

Thank you so much for the great resume. Thomas did a superb job and should be commended for such. The resume looks great and Thomas made the entire process easy and smooth. I would like you to know that since I was laid off the day I returned the worksheet to you I was in a scramble to draft up my own just so that I would have something to use in my job search until I received my "Distinctive" resume. When I received my resume, I was blown away at how much better Thomas was able to present the same information. More than that though, my resume from Distinctive Documents is truly a confidence booster and for that I'll never be able to thank you enough. Please recognize Thomas for his great work and professionalism. And thank you, thank you, thank you! I will recommend your services to others without hesitation.
