The Top 4 Professional Resume Examples Written by a Professional Recruiter

If you want to land an professional position, you need an professional resume written from a recruiter’s perspective who understands ATS systems and how hiring happens in order to stand out and accurately promote your strengths.

Your professional resume’s job is to land the interview.  Having an eye-catching, visually-captivating layout makes a powerful first impression with the hiring manager.  The highest level recruiters, CEO’s, CFO’s, and board members will call you for the interview when this is done properly. 

The following resume examples were written by a professional professional resume writer with years of experience in professional recruiting.

Take note of the writing style and word choices that emphasize the candidate’s professional achievements to stand out to recruiters. Keep your resume focused on professional and managerial achievements relevant to the targeted position.

Some examples of these achievements and activities are: creating new business opportunities, increasing ROI, business management, and sales generation. Other strong points to include are financial management, risk assessment, developing and implementing strategies, and providing leadership direction.
