“I have received well over 100 emails responses to the resume email distribution. 30 or so have real potential including “Operating Partners” for Private Equity that get paid on a transaction basis eval and success and transition to a Board Seat or temp embedded management. I have 12-15 introductory calls completed/scheduled. People are responding very well to the resume even when they don’t have current opportunities.”
CEO/BOD • Healthcare
“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 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.”
CEO • Title Change from COO
“Since we last spoke following my distributions, lots of good things have happened. I guess it’s been about two weeks now and I have had over 100 written replies to my executive resume compared to the occasional response when I went at this alone. Those contacts turned into 20 phone calls which have now culminated into 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 we spoke initially, and one CEO opportunity which was the result of some awesome ongoing dialogue that you helped start.”
“Your exceptional wisdom and guidance will play a significant will role in my next chapter…either with a potential advisory board seat or other vetted senior executive opportunities saying, “Maria is undoubtedly the one!”
President, CEO • Global Luxury Brands
“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.”
CEO • Digital Technology
“It was indeed a pleasure meeting you in person yesterday and spending the day continuing our collaboration! Thank you so very much for your time, your hospitality, your counsel, and phenomenal work product. The day consistently exceeded my expectations, and the bar was already set quite high. I thoroughly enjoyed every facet of our visit; from reviewing your teams’ deliverables to strategizing about the best way(s) to implement the amazing tools you have created, and every moment in between. Please pass along my thanks and appreciation to Cindy and the team for their dedication to this project. You have amassed an outstanding group – which is a reflection of you and your tremendous talents – especially the crafting of my executive resume.”
“When I first read the 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.”
CEO • Energy
“I start my position as COO next week. Took a bit longer as I was very specific in what I was looking for; found it. Thank you to you and your team for the great work with my executive resume document.”
CEO • Fintech/HC/Manufacturing
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.
