The following is an example of a resume for a C-level executive. This resume also contains a resume profile, which is a brief, introductory summary of an applicant’s skills, experiences, and goals as they relate to a job opening. By using a resume profile (also known as a “Qualifications Profile”), the candidate is able to strongly present the keyword skills that will ensure the resume scores highly when scanned by a potential employer’s automated applicant tracking system (ATS).

Highlight Your Achievements

The candidate’s most impressive accomplishments, quantified by dollar amounts and percentages, are highlighted in a dedicated “Recent Accomplishments” section preceding the traditional “Experience” section. Showcasing these tangible achievements will help to ensure that the candidate immediately stands out among his competition. The strongest accomplishments are highlighted with bold text.

Different bulleted achievements are then also incorporated into the “Experience” section, once again serving to illustrate the impressive contributions this executive has made to the companies he’s worked for during his career.

The "Education" section of the resume includes the undergraduate and graduate degrees the candidate has earned.
