Are Executive Resumes Different From Any Other?
Executive resumes are special.
Don’t get me wrong-I’m not saying that executives are better than the rest of us, I’m just saying that executive resumes need a special touch, as an executive-level role entails a whole new level of responsibility.
If you are presenting an entry-level resume, what do you have? You might have a college degree. You likely have some work experience, but if you do, it is likely in an unrelated field. Then you have to ask if your experience and skills transfer. That can often be a challenge for resume writers, but it’s a common everyday challenge for professional resume writers.
Chances are, if you are seeking an executive position, then you are seeking it in the same company that you’ve worked in for a long time. At the very least, you are seeking an executive position within the same industry. That lends itself to scrutiny.
How well are your accomplishments and challenges laid out in your resume? Many times as our careers advance, we don’t capture them on paper, so start compiling your thoughts about these things on paper. Look through performance reviews if you need help remembering.
A good executive resume is defined as much by what you leave out as by what you put in. Careful thought must be put into every item on the resume. And that’s what makes it so special.
