ADDITIONAL EXECUTIVE RESUME SAMPLES

In response to popular demand, a selection of executive resumes, executive bios, and cover letters that have been made appropriately anonymous is currently in the conversion process to be web-ready, and will be posted soon on this “in-development” Executive Resume Samples page. To protect this proprietary material, the resume examples will consist primarily of representative excerpts, in order to demonstrate the style and quality of content while protecting the confidentiality and investment of clients. (The last thing an executive would want to see is his or her resume duplicated by a competing candidate.)

Resume examples with active links below are available for viewing now; additional sample executive resumes as listed are currently in development and will cover various industries and functions, including:

A CAVEAT REGARDING EXECUTIVE RESUME SAMPLES

However, the examples will at least give you an idea of my general approach.
