How To Write The Perfect Resume (Explained By An Elite Resume Writer)
4 min read
What makes a resume perfect, anyway? It’s an admittedly subjective question. Perfection, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
And for my team, our ‘beholders’ are highly demanding executives and senior leaders with complex work histories.
But more than that, we’re beholden to the recruiters and hiring managers who stand between our clients and their next career moves. All of which is to say that we take resume writing very seriously.
You see, over the last five years, my team and I have provided resume writing services to over 2,500 clients. We’ve held a five-star customer review rating for 96% of that time (it dropped to 4.7 for a little while).
So writing perfect resumes is something that the Arielle Exectutive team does every day.
So you’d probably default to The Very Best of Prince.
If you’re an experienced professional, your resume strategy should be no different.
My team typically details between three and six of the most recent and relevant roles from the past 10 to 15 years, listing earlier career history in a summary section that includes titles, organisations and tenure.
We also take the ‘Russian Doll’ approach. This means we give your more recent roles the most coveted resume real estate, versus those further back in time.
6. It’s Your Turn To Write The Perfect Resume.
You and your career are a dynamic story that’s always evolving. That becomes more interesting and intricate with each year, role and professional victory that comes and goes.
