Executive Resume Writing Service by Wendi Weiner
Investing in a top executive resume writing service with an executive resume writer can give you the biggest return in your executive career: an interview at Fortune 100 companies for the most coveted roles, entry into a Board of Directors position, leverage as a top business consultant, or even your next prestigious award.
According to Forbes, job seekers are 40% more likely to get noticed by hiring managers with a professionally written resume.
Think about it. Your executive resume is the single most important career document you will ever need. We turn to experts (therapists, doctors, mechanics, hair stylists, etc.), for help in our everyday lives, and your executive resume should not be an exception to that rule.
Wendi Weiner’s executive resume clients (general counsels, C-suite, and board leaders) have accelerated their job searches, had doors open for them for the most coveted positions, and they have achieved the highest salaries reflecting over a 15% increase at minimum.
Each week that you are unemployed or job searching can cost you hundreds or possibly even thousands of dollars. How so? Let’s put some real figures to the test. If you are currently earning $100,000, you are missing out on an extra $15,000 to $20,000 a year by not acquiring a better job. If you are unemployed and your previous base salary was $100,000, you are losing over $8,000 a month as you job search. Just imagine what those numbers would convert to if you shortened your job search by weeks or months by having your resume professionally overhauled.
What to Look for in Executive Resume Writers & Executive Resume Services
A top executive resume writer will have the following credentials and acumen: a high-level executive career background and powerful academic background, top resume writing certifications (usually several), executive resume samples, a solid and proven reputation in the resume writing industry, publications and media features in multiple outlets, published reviews/testimonials on third-party sites, a strong online presence across all social media channels (LinkedIn, Twitter, FB, and IG), and there will be an authentic way in which the executive resume writer markets himself/herself. Keep in mind: the resume industry is NOT regulated. So, you must do your homework very carefully in researching executive resume writers.

Why an Executive Resume Writing Service is a Must for Today’s Top Executives
Senior executives are in high-level jobs with high-level responsibility and high-level decision-making. They must leverage their top tools in order to accelerate their careers. That’s where hiring an executive resume writer comes into play. A skilled executive resume writer will spend the time extracting all of the necessary information to properly brand the executive while also intensely focusing on strategy and collaboration in the executive resume writing process.
Keep in mind that an executive resume and accompanying executive job search strategy must be different in the digital age.
A resume used to be a mere summary of your work history. You would hear back from someone in HR very quickly after your resume was seen by a human. In today’s digital age, with just a few seconds to spare, your executive resume (and your LinkedIn profile) must personally brand you and capture the reader’s attention quickly while standing out in a pile of thousands of candidates. Your executive resume must also be a strategic marketing document that commands your value and expertise by focusing on your core competencies, achievements, accomplishments, and major contributions. Your executive resume must be able to pass through an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and actually make it seen by the human eye.
Executive resume writing is both a skill and an art. It is technical, daunting, and not to mention, downright stressful. Many find it hard to write about themselves or target their resume for a specific position. Think about the logic behind this. You have a hair stylist cut or color your hair. You have a trained mechanic fix your car. You hire a contractor to remodel your house. Why wouldn’t you want a top-rated executive resume writer and job search expert helping you in the next step in your career? Remember, a great executive resume is what wins the most competitive job interviews. It encompasses succinct writing, superior grammar, and a style that astounds the reader with the “wow” factor. Time and time again, it’s a proven fact that professionally written executive resumes get more interviews for the more coveted positions.

Prior to any client hiring us, we request you send your resume so that we may review it and discuss it with you during the consultation call. Once a client hires us after consultation and payment, we provide the client with an introspective questionnaire that concentrates on extracting the client’s accomplishments, skills, career goals, leadership, unique value to organizations, and desired target position(s). This enables us to have a more developed grasp on how to best serve our client’s needs. We compare the questionnaire to the current resume, research the specific job the client is seeking, and then the magic truly begins. We utilize a three (3) step process with all of our clients, no matter their level or industry. Our resume service includes structure reformatting, content revamping, and reviewing/editing. We consistently update our clients on the progress of the resume during the draft stage. Many times, we will ask additional questions and seek additional information through a comprehensive follow-up call. As a result, the average resume turnaround time is 14-21 days.
We believe that your resume and cover letter matter equally. Not only will we write a resume tailored to your career objectives and experience, we will also craft a detailed cover letter which emphasizes your career credentials and accomplishments. Employers use cover letters to determine a potential candidate’s writing and communication skills. Wendi Weiner, The Writing Guru® focuses on establishing a clear connection between your skill set and your ability to convey those skills in writing. Therefore, ALL of our resume packages include a personalized cover letter with your executive resume!
