C-Level Resume & LinkedIn Profile Writing Examples
Unlike other resumes, your C-Suite resume is a high-level document that speaks to skills which include specific areas of your subject matter and industry expertise, leadership competencies, metric-driven results and accomplishments, advanced degrees, certifications, and distinctions as they relate to your thought leadership. To craft the best C-level resume, the layout and content must be strategically constructed to appeal to and be easily assimilated by your audience. There is an art to this in terms of understanding how stakeholders process the information in your executive resume, both at a cursory glance and during times of deeper review further along in the evolution of the executive interview process.
As a C-level executive, your professional marketing documents only begin with your executive resume. Our executive resume writing services team also crafts targeted value proposition letters and expert LinkedIn profiles, executive biographies, endorsement pages, and online career portfolios.

“Your fantastic work on my executive resume and biography helped me to land a FORTUNE Magazine 40 under 40 nomination with a single email, after 2 years of aspiring to make it happen.”
“A big thanks to you for your coaching and your executive resume services and the Linked In help. Thanks to you, I was admitted to the Yale School Of Management Executive MBA Program. I am so excited.”
“I wanted to share with you that I was hired as a consultant today by my first choice, xxx at the exact hourly rate of xxx per hour! Thank you ever so much for the executive resume that I know made the difference in securing the interview. The other key was having my friend at xxx recommend me. The two together, and a good interview sealed the deal. Thank you again so very much and I hope you know how valuable your resume writing services are for your clients.”
“I accepted the Chief Administrative Officer role at a Fort-Lauderdale based company called XXXX. We are the world’s largest private aviation membership company.”
“As a VIP Platinum client, I received excellent support during my transition and secured a higher title with a fast-growth company with a very bright future, a $65k increase in compensation with significant bonus potential. I felt incredibly prepared during the negations and this all happened within 90 days – thank you! I was also able to successfully transition out of the industry I was in – which was another goal of mine.”
“I just wanted to say thanks so much for your help with my executive resume and the recruiter/private equity distributions. The initial response has been incredible. In less than 48 hours I have 7 appointments. You and your team are wonderful!”
“When I first read my executive resume I was initially apprehensive about the new resume and format. Why? Because you created such a glowing representation of my career, background, and what I can offer the right company. I’m not the kind of person who typically ‘blows his own horn’. It took a while for me to get comfortable with all of this. Thank you!!! You have done a remarkable job.”
“With a very big THANKS! I just got my dream job and will moving on to bigger and better. I am very excited. I want to thank you for helping me give my executive resume a face lift. I am convinced this helped me land my new role. I obtained this role initially though a new LinkedIn executive recruiter relationship. I secured a compensation increase and a bigger role. Thanks for all your help with my new career challenge, we put this together in 2020. Worked beautifully.”
“Since our conversation 2 weeks ago, I went from 500k LinkedIn connections to 1.6M, and I have only added a handful of people. I have had CEOs, EVPs and SVPs from large industry firms connect with a simply worded invitation. It is really amazing how this works.”
“I just want to let you know that everybody I talked to – all very impressed with my executive biography, executive resume and cover letter. I received a $70K increase in total comp – mid six figures. STR/LTR cash – base pay was 25% higher. I also had two opportunities pending that I did not move forward on. I made the transition after a 20-year run with my previous large company employer in just 60 days.”
“I have accepted the role of SVP Commercial (or GM) for the Americas at XXXX which is a major player in the XXXX market. I will be managing 1B+ in revenue and 1000+ employees across Sales, Marketing and Services addressing customers in the traditional life science and clinical diagnostic markets. More than all of the wonderful components that came with the VIP package, your team helped me develop a compelling story and find my voice which made all the difference during the interview process…what surprised me the most is how active you are in the process.”
“I’m finalizing details to become the Head of HR for Oncology Global Functions for XXXX in XXXX. I increased my cash compensation $75k but could be more b/c of growth in Oncology, which would be reflected in bonus payout. Similar title, but they are grooming to be the Head of HR for Oncology in a few years. Also, they are covering the stock I will be giving up as a result of the move…200k.”
“The job is at XXXX in New Mexico supervising their data automation teams. The specific job title is Group Leader. I don’t know how that translates to the civilian job market, but maybe VP or Senior Director. Comp is in the VP / SVP range at $190k all in plus $100+ relocation packages. This is a boost from typical transitions at my level. Overall I’m pretty happy with the job and compensation package. The NM location was on my short list of places to move to.”
“I just signed an offer for a VP of Global Sales position with one of the largest XXXX in the industry. I am very excited about my new position. I have increased my salary 20% – I expect to be around 35% to 40% after a full year. I have also been in discussions through a recruiter for senior sales management position with another company in XXXX. Both of these opportunities were a direct result of my revised LinkedIn profile, updated executive resume and the recruiter distribution you provided for me.”
“Using the executive resume you designed for me I went from a SVP of Operations to landing a COO role with a premier, $2B+ specialty food company. I also secured a $100k+ salary increase and an amazing benefit package. This position is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the US and my wife and I couldn’t be happier. I have been referring you to others every chance I get!”
“Mary and Cindy, I can’t thank you enough for the incredible work you’ve done on this project. The executive resume is spectacular, and gives me tremendous confidence that I can stand out in this highly-competitive market. Everything looks accurate and I absolutely approve creating a fictionalized version! If there’s anything else you need from me please let me know.”
“To date, [the recruiter distribution] has resulted in ~60 replies. The great news so far is: seven recruiter phone/Skype meetings have been scheduled or have already taken place; there are eight additional recruiters that are interested because of my experience, and I have separate follow-up activities; via phone conversation or email reply I have had nothing but compliments on my background/expertise which is a testament to what a great job your team did to market me and developing my executive resume.”
“I accepted a role of VP of Global XXXX with a medical devices & healthcare leader… I ended with a great overall package that included 15% increase over base, 100% increase in bonus (from 25% to 50%), significant number of stock options vesting in 2 years. I would consider overall package to be 50% or more than what I had at XXXX. Additionally, being a VP there is open vacation plan… All international travel is business or first class. Great company in a fast growth mode and great leaders to steer the company. At the end I had to make a decision with 4 different offers on hand and it was a very tough situation for me to choose one over the other as all 4 had equally impressive package and roles. But, eventually the scope and impact this particular role won over the other three.”
“I secured a position with a bigger title and a $30,000 overall comp. increase – with a $19 billion Fortune 500 multinational manufacturer. I am excited to hire you again to update my executive resume in order to position myself to step into a Director role!”
“In just a few months, I was able to up-level my title to Chief Strategy Officer, increase the potential for my total compensation package and align myself with a fantastic multinational company in my preferred geographic target outside the US.”
“I wanted to share an update since the last time we communicated. I was in the process of interviewing for an internal promotion as well as an external leadership position, and I ended up accepting an offer for the external position. I will be Head of Sales, Americas for a XXXXX company. I will be managing managers, which was my next step goal. I negotiated my offer and ended up securing a $85k overall increase in total comp. The timeline was exactly what I was aiming for (decision in August and transition in September-October). I’m so appreciative of the support for my updated executive resume, VPL, and LinkedIn profile, as well as the executive coaching session. I had great success with the VPL and resume, and I would estimate I received about an 80% response rate when I used them for job applications! So, I am very happy with how it all turned out, and I owe much of that to the support from your team!!”
“I took a position with an aerospace company (new industry) and went from COO to CEO. The total comp is only slightly more but the potential payout opportunity is in the multi-seven figures. The PE firm that owns the company hired me and commented multiple times how they loved the flow and the content of my executive resume. I got so many compliments on how professional it was and how easy to assimilate the information was too. The website you designed also got a lot of compliments and made it easy for me to quickly give a link and then they could review my qualifications and come back later for another discussion.”
“I accepted a position and start tomorrow (Monday). I will be working for XXXX, a private equity-backed manufacturer in the oil and gas industry. I increased my comp by over $20k and am in line for the President role… I would not have found this position without your help, as this is a result of your e-mail campaign. My position was not identified until they saw my credentials on my executive resume, and they realized that they could benefit from someone with my experiences.”
“Just wanted to thank you all for your efforts, support and guidance that helped get me my dream job today. All of you are responsible for this and I cannot thank you enough! Keep helping people and they shall never forget you! Cheers!”
“I applied for 15 jobs and I got interview calls for 13 including companies like Google and Visa. Many thanks for your help.”
