The Executive CMO Resume that Landed 15 Potential Job Interviews in 2 Weeks

The majority of our executive resume clients share that they are able to end their job searches soon after we create their executive resumes. Why? Well, there are three rules we always apply that benefit every one of our CXO clients:

  • The first and most important rule we always follow is that we write TO what you want next vs. a narrative focusing on from where you have been. If you want several examples of this – look here.
  • The second rule is that we create visually stimulating and well-organized executive resumes that are easy to digest and provide fundamental context (scale, scope, and alignment) at the cursory glance.
  • And third, we frontload and highlight the metric-driven results you achieve vs. what you do (a weaker position). This clearly establishes your leadership in the minds of your reader.

In the example below, we applied these three principals for this Chief Marketing Officer of Fortune 500 Companies. We then added some rocket fuel to her existing search strategies by conducting an executive recruiter distribution for her, while introducing her to executive recruiters in her area of expertise.

Recently this client wrote us to apprise us of her progress. In her email, she states she landed 15 solid recruiter conversations and interviews for potential opportunities. She added that she felt the branding and packaging were incredibly well-received.

I confess — marketing executives are our TOUGHEST clients because after all — we both do the same things! This makes me especially proud and pleased for this outstanding Fortune 500 executive. This serves as a good benchmark for the kinds of results that can be fluidly achieved for C-Level executives if they have these following things in place: a clear focus of direction, expertly written and designed marketing collateral, and 2 or 3 C-level job search strategies. If you want to explore these strategies, I outlined a few of them here.
