Our Executive Resume Writing Service Reviews & Testimonials

Why We Are The Best Executive Resume Writing Firm

It starts with your executive resume, but your CEO 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 CEOs in the US.

VP • Technology

I accepted a role at XXX (a subsidiary of a $30B XXX Corporation) as VP of their XXX business. I increased my compensation by 30%. In the new job, I work in the high growth XXX area. The company culture is a fast-paced environment and it enables me to apply big ideas and my unique XXX experience for success.”

VP • Healthcare

“It has been approximately 3 months since I actively started searching after getting my executive resume package delivered by you and your team. As I accepted a role of VP of Global XXX with a medical devices & healthcare leader, I wanted to let you know that I have been successfully hired. I ended with a great overall package that included a 15% increase over base, 100% increase in bonus (from 25% to 50%), and a significant number of stock options vesting in 2 years. I would consider my overall package to be 50% or more than what I had at XXX.”

Sr. Manager • Fortune 100

“With the executive resume you initially wrote for me, 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!”

VP • Hospitality

“Ladies, I officially accepted the Vice President of Sales position yesterday at Cxxxx Hotels and Resorts! (Exactly 4 weeks from the day I left Wxxxxxx is that a record?) Not only have I obtained the snazzy title of VP, I increased my salary by almost $25K! In more than one interview, the most important being the owner of the company, they commented on my executive resume and how much it stood out from the crowd and was interesting and told the story!”

CDO • Finance

“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.”

Group Vice President • Fortune 100 Technology

Per your suggestion, I sent a VPL to the CEO (of one of the largest technology companies in the world) and received a call from the internal executive recruiter 4 hours later. My new compensation package totals $1 million and my title is Group Vice President. I attained my goals of transitioning from self-employed status to the corporate world while maintaining my geographic preference. I was glad to have you in my corner – thank you!”

CEO • Professional Services

“The executive 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 with only one drawback, and that was this would be a 2-year contract.”

CEO • Communications

“Thanks Mary Elizabeth, my email has been very active with acknowledgments of receipt as well as some nice personal notes regarding the depth of my experience. I used your salary negotiating techniques on my NYC interview. The CFO of the company came right at me trying to nail down a comp package 2 hours into the interview. It was good to get my first interview out of the way!”

CEO • Finance

“My interview lasted 3 hours with the venture capital firm. Your coaching from Module #4 was perfect. It was as if you were in the room with me. I remained excited throughout the interview even though I have never raised any capital for a new venture. They saw my enthusiasm and decided that they could teach me the financing business. By the end of the meeting, they outlined three different ways we can work together. Thank you for your incredible insights and being passionate about my success!”

At the C-Suite level, you need a strategically aligned document expertly crafted to your goals. Writers that have amassed the expertise to deliver an effective CEO resume are typically in the $2K–$5K range.

Additionally, as executive resume writing is a non-regulated industry, our professional opinion is that the executive resume writer or executive resume writing services firm you retain should have at least 10 years of experience crafting C-level resumes and advanced certifications from associations such as Career Directors International (CDI), The National Association of Resume Writers (NARW), or Career Thought Leaders (CTL). You can seek executive resume writing firms to vet through the aforementioned association directories.
