When was the last time you dusted off and updated your executive resume and biography?
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 executive resume looks and reads, as evidenced by my samples below.
You’ll see the impact personal branding has on today’s executive resume and biography, to differentiate and generate chemistry for the job-seeker’s unique promise of value.

• Senior Partner — Acquisitions and Business Development Executive Brand Biography
I created the following resume for my client Bruce Smythe, who was NOT in a confidential search. He allowed me to include his resume here.
• President-CEO-COO Manufacturing Operations Resume
