Executive Resume Sample

Executive Resume Sample : If you attended college, mention college courses taken, college major and minor and any special requirements met, if they are related to your objective.

BODY OF THE RESUME The body of the resume allows you to showcase your experience (paid and unpaid) and your skills. Compiling information for this section was discussed earlier in this chapter, but for now we're focusing on the format of this section. Remember these important guidelines while writing the body of your resume:

Start with the most important or most time-consuming task.

Use action verbs to describe tasks.

Be consistent in use of verb tense, at least in each section. For a current job, use the present tense (develop, organize) or say "Responsible for" (developing, organizing). Use past tense (developed, organized) for former experience. Think beyond your everyday responsibilities. List the things you feel good about having done and examples of recognition you have received.

Choose concise, short, postcard-like phrases.

Tell quantity information (how much? how many?) showing what you did and how well you did it.

When describing skills, choose a word or phrase to head each category. Similar activities, experiences, responsibilities and tasks should be grouped together.


The section on educational background should include all your formal training, workshops, seminars and informal training that relate to the job for which you are applying. List apprenticeships and on-the-job training in this section also.

You may place this section anywhere in the resume, depending on how important you think your education is. For example, if you've recently graduated from a program of study and haven't had any related work experience, you may place your educational achievements near the top of the resume. If you haven't been in school for a few years, you may want to place your education section after your work experience section, at the end of the resume.

No matter where you place the section on education, be sure to include…

Educational and training experiences (most recent first)

Workshops, seminars and continuing education programs that relate to your objective

Apprenticeships and on-the-job training

School-related activities, such as honors, offices held and significant activities, if they are related to your objective

The name of the institution, its location, your diploma or certification or degree and dates of completion

If you attended college, mention college courses taken, college major and minor and any special requirements met, if they are related to your objective. Also, consider mentioning any college or training expenses you earned on your own.
