It's a totally different ball game at the executive level - let us guide your through this step-by-step!
How is an executive resume different from a professional resume? There are many differences in content, structure and presentation. But the single biggest difference, the defining characteristic is a highly compelling personal brand evidenced with a track record of specific quantified business impact and results, such as revenue and profit improvement, cost savings and performance enhancement achievements. It also sells the job seeker's most important core qualifications and leadership skills that are essential for successful performance. A truly effective executive resume is a response-generating sales tool that is well-written, distinctive in appearance, and consistent in finding its way to the top of the resume stack. Our proprietary ATOPS framework has been perfected over the past 24 years to produce such ResultsBrand™ executive resumes for our clients.

And, much like the executive resume, your profile must clearly reflect your brand and paint a concise picture of the business impact you bring to an organization based on your key experiences and successes. However, constructing it is not as simple as cut/paste from your resume. Both the tone and the content are different - after all, you frequently cannot reveal publicly the same detailed numbers as you can in a privately-viewed resume.
Our proprietary ATOPS career management framework helps clients in various stages of career evolution, whether aggressively looking for a new role or simply open to exploring a new career advancing opp when presented to them. We coach our clients throughout all phases of career search, from strategy to interviewing tactics, and even help them succeed in transitioning into their new role as new leaders, making a strong impact in their first 100 days on the job.
