CTO/CIO/CISO/VP Technology Resume Writing Service Reviews and Testimonials

Why We Are Considered The Best Executive Resume Writing Service

It starts with your executive resume, but your CTO 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 executive resume writing firm for technology executives in the US.

CTO • FinTech

“The new company matched my base and bonus. Add-ons included a strong sign-on bonus (to offset walking away from my bonus), car allowance, and a 5x increase in equity (in the millions in current market value – which is many times greater than my current package). I am going from a 500MM revenue company to a 1B+ revenue organization, with strong investors and a track record of growth and profitability…I don’t think I would have ever been a blip on their radar without a strong LinkedIn profile to start me off. I think I interviewed with 9 people over several months, and got nothing but compliments on the executive resume.”

CIO/CDO • Finance

“Hey Mary Elizabeth, hope you are doing well. I wanted to provide you an update. I just accepted a position with XOXO (wish me luck). I greatly appreciate all the help and support you provided throughout the process. You and your team are the best! I would love to stay in touch re: performance leadership and career coaching going forward. Yes, you and your team have been phenomenal, and you have exceeded my expectations.”

CTO • Title Change from Vice President

“The feedback from my colleagues and potential employers was amazing: we went from “nice resume” to “fantastic format and what an amazing executive resume.” I landed a dream job at nearly $400k, a 30% premium over my previous jobs. In addition, I received a healthy chunk of stock options that could provide another life-changing experience. Thank you, Mary Elizabeth, for reawakening my confidence and showing me the way.”

CISO/SVP/COO • Security

“I’ve had 5 phone screenings so far in the past two days from the distribution list you sent my resume and VPL to. The phone conversations where about 30 minutes apiece with 2 CEOs, one Managing Partner, and 2 Executive Recruiters. Both CEOs told me that in their almost 30 years apiece, they have NEVER seen a more clean, crisp executive resume, especially from someone in the military. The other Managing Partner in NY said the exact same thing. If fact, I was asked why I was only going for CISO and why not SVP or COO? The other Executive Recruiters, one in DC and the other in Denver said that I jumped off the page when they read it (paraphrasing of course).”

CIO, Global Financial Services • Title Change from SVP

I am now the CIO of XXXX’s. Great role, great package and literally across the street from my former office so no real change in commute. I love my new resume and LinkedIn page and believe they were key factors in this opportunity. I’ll keep the referrals coming …lots of people asking in light of this new opportunity. :)”

CIO, Global Services • Title Change from SVP

My total comp package increased by about 30%. And that is significant because I was not under paid at my prior employer. I was second only to the CTO (he was open about it). I was found by a firm called XXXX via LinkedIn. I have been contacted by at least 12 firms since the revised LinkedIn page went up and XXXX persists as recent as today. The compensation and the title are outstanding, but it’s the opportunity to take all I’ve learned and actually be the “head coach” that means the most.”

VP • Global AI & Machine Learning

“I received multiple offers 6 months of working with you. With your coaching, I was able to counter my favorite offer and the total comp gains me ~$200k++ over what I make now and a global VP title in my area of specialty for top global companies.”

CIO • Engineering

“I accepted a position with XXXX as their new CIO of Engineering! In a nut shell, I received a 20% increase in base pay and a 140% increase in annual bonus…total compensation $350k+. I consider this to be ‘The Perfect Job’ for me.”

SVP Technology • Industry Change: Global Supply Chain & Consumer Goods

“Your guidance helped me define the career path I am passionate about. You were my rock during offer negotiations and decision making.”
