Here we have a before and after resume example for a financial management professional. The after example can serve as a resource for people with a background in banking, investments and financial services.
The “Before” version is a good example of the common misconception that a one-page resume is what most hiring managers want to see.
This candidate undersold his value by presenting nine years of work history on a single page with a list of duties performed.
In addition, the format used is a MS WORD template. Using a template failed to present the candidate’s level of professionalism.
On the “After” version we see the candidate is now well represented by a professionally written and formatted document that clearly demonstrates the impact he made on the companies he worked with through a new listing of solid quantifiable accomplishments that ensures that he “stand out” from the crowd.
