Example Program Manager Resume

Program Manager Resume | Project Management | Technology Operations

This client with extensive program, project, and technology operations experience both in the private sector and the military, was exceptionally well qualified for director and VP-level positions. Unfortunately, his job titles didn’t reflect that and were holding him back.

This resume was written to call out and really showcase the skills and experiences that were relevant for the higher level positions he was targeting. Subtle strategies were used, such as deemphasizing his job titles by their placement and formatting. This allowed us to draw the eye and attention to the points we wanted the reader to notice, and away from what we didn’t want them to notice.

The Value-Offered Summary was a strategy we used to allow us to emphasize the relevant accomplishments that would have otherwise been lost in the text–likely on the second page of the resume.

The accomplishment statements all highlight the results of each accomplishment, proving that hiring this professional will produce a strong return on investment.

This client’s extensive military experience was summarized as it was quite old. However, we chose to include it because the client had some really impressive accomplishments during that time.

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.

I wanted to say “Hello” and to provide you with a progress report. Thanks to the mailing in December, I have been in discussions with Xxxxxxx, an international banking consulting company. Actually, they contacted me the day the letter and resume was distributed. We are currently in discussions about my joining their company. Here’s the amazing part: in the initial questionnaire, I noted corporate finance and capital funding as my area of weakness. If things unfold in a positive manner for their business over the next couple of months, they would like me to join them in assisting entrepreneurial businesses finance their expansion leveraging the international financial markets. I could not have been in this position without your extraordinary crafting of my experience in such a compelling manner. They are willing to teach me the finance world since I bring so much technology and business operations experience to the table. Go figure! I have had one offer from a Florida based company which required me to move. Unfortunately, that is not on option of me. It’s great to know that my resume is getting traction. Recently, I had a call from a recruiter who said that in all of his years in the field, he had never see a resume format like mine. He LOVED IT!!! Of course I immediately gave him your name in the event that some of his clients might need your services. Thank you for your extraordinary gift and caring. I’ll send you periodic updates.

Most creative and excellent work, words fail me to express about this project. Really appreciate your work and I look forward to continuing with you through my friends and colleagues.

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

Morning, Michelle, I have cc’d you on an e-mail to Nancy several minutes ago. I think that note pretty well sums up my response to your inquiry about how things are going! It has been a pleasure to work with you and your company. You’ve got a great thing going there. Very professional, accountable and so easy to work with.

The other email he refers to...

I really like the work you have done and I now understand how a pro like you can take a pretty good document to whole different level. Early on in my experience with your company, I was curious how my personal brand would come through. As my wife reviewed your work with me, she said ‘this is so YOU’. Mission accomplished! So, congratulations and thank you to you, Nancy, for a job well done. Please count me as a very satisfied customer and feel free to use me as a customer reference if the need should ever arise.
