C-level Executive Resume & Biography Samples
When was the last time you dusted off and updated your executive resume?
If you’re like many top executives, it’s been several years, or you don’t even have a resume because you never needed one to land a job.
You may be surprised by the way today’s c-level / senior executive resume looks and reads.

But you don’t want to copy someone else’s brand and promise of value, right?

There are many reasons why it’s not a good idea to “use” the content from resume samples. Find out in my blog post, What’s Wrong with Copying an Executive Brand Resume Sample?
