COO Resume Writing Service Reviews and Testimonials

Why We Are Considered The Best Executive Resume Writing Service

t starts with your executive resume, but your COO resume writing services team takes a holistic approach to your entire transition, advising you every step of the way to make achieving your goals as manageable and efficient as possible. This is why we consider ourselves the best COO executive resume writing firm for operations executives in the US.

COO • Consumer Goods

“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!”

COO • Technology

“Before I used your service, I had written my executive resume myself, as I had done many times in the past, and began my search as I had always done. In 2 years I was not able to secure a single interview. I purchased a C-level package and we got started. First the resume, then LinkedIn, then you did some coaching. The resume was top rate as was my LinkedIn page, and I found the coaching very helpful. I also paid you to distribute my resume. One month later I interviewed through one of the agencies you had sent my executive resume to and I was hired with a 90% increase in pay from my previous employer.”

COO • Manufacturing

“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.”

COO/VP • Healthcare

“I believe my work portfolio + executive resume was a big difference maker. I was able to secure the title and comp I wanted. I was seeking 200+ and received 300+, + amazing benefits. almost 3x what I’m doing now with benefits included.”

COO • Healthcare • Title Change from SVP

“Your efforts had me as a finalist in no less than 6 executive-level roles, which while the market is good, is still noteworthy as I’ve had friends not even get to the finalist stage. Total compensation increase of about 40%. Base salary increase of 33.33%. Pretty decent numbers if I have to admit it.”

COO, Fortune 500 • Retail

“It’s been some time since we last spoke. Even though we haven’t worked together recently our work together continues to pay dividends for me and for that reason I have continued to refer trusted friends and colleagues to you. This is such an occasion. I recently took a CEO role of a new portfolio company as my last role was winding down and at the same time my prior boss has also transitioned out of the project we were leading together.”

COO • Consumer Goods

“I just wanted to say thanks so much for your help with the executive resumes 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!”

COO • Distribution

“I guess it’s been about two weeks now and I have had over 100 written replies compared to the occasional response when I went at this alone. Those contacts turned into 20 phone calls which has now culminated in 4 real opportunities I am pursuing as part of a formal search, 3 COO opportunities which are nearly a perfect match for what I targeted when Mary Elizabeth and I spoke initially and one CEO opportunity which was the result of some awesome ongoing dialogue that you helped start.”

COO • Technology

“I had an interview on Monday with a company for a COO role and the CEO said to me that whoever put my executive resume together did a fantastic job, that it had all the info he needed and was so easy to read! Just wanted to pass on the praise!”
