Below you will find a before and after resume for a sales executive with a broad range of experience that focuses on consulting and business development.
As a Managing Director in Sales and Business Development, it’s clear that job seeker is working at the executive level.
However, upon viewing his before resume, it lacks the polish of an executive presentation and did not grab the readers attention. The summary was not compelling and the descriptions within the experience section did not include enough detail. Accomplishments did not stand out.
In the After version of this resume, notice how the writer separated out his job responsibilities from his accomplishments, allowing the reader to quickly see how this executive’s leadership and initiative had a positive impact on his previous employers. What a contrast between these two presentations!
