Executive resumes are, by nature, more detailed and more substantial than normal resumes. They are often written in a slightly different format. A resume for an executive, a manager or a professional like a doctor or a lawyer, requires a certain level of sophistication and detail that the resume for an average career does not require.
With this in mind, we have several levels of service tailored specifically to executives and managers. These resumes focus more on quantifiable accomplishments and achievements. Who is this service designed for? Executives, managers, administrators, supervisors or corporate officers. These services are tailored for anyone in a position of authority in the corporate or business world. Also, doctors, lawyers, and experienced professionals in the higher levels of the academic world.

Executive orders are assigned to our senior, most experienced writers. These are the writers who have proven they know how to sell career experience effectively. You are given proper executive formatting, with additional emphasis on experience, accomplishments and skill levels.

Resume Package FAQ
What is a professional resume?
It's a 1-2 page resume that we design to your specifications, based upon your immediate and long-term career goals, as well as your particular experience and job history. This is the standard resume that you will print up on a piece of paper and take to your job interview. We use unique, professional page designs to ensure that your strengths and qualifications stand out. This particular product is emailed to you as a file attachment within the deadline you select. The resume will be in MSWord .doc format so you make changes to the document as you need over the years, and you can print up as many copies as you want. For a small additional fee, we will print up copies on professional, high-weave resume paper and mail you the copies via US Mail.
What is an E-Resume?
An e-resume is a specially formatted text-only version of your resume. The format in question is called ASCII format. This formatting allows the text to be sent over all electronic medias, while retaining its margins and tabs. Have you ever cut and pasted something into an email only to have the text get jumbled and scrambled when you send the document? ASCII formatting prevents this from happening.
When do you use an e-resume? When you submit your resume to online job search site like HotJobs.com (and many others) they request that you cut and paste your current resume into their forms so they can post it to their network. If your resume is not in proper e-resume format, you run the risk of having your formatting show up jumbled.
Also, some corporations and recruiters don't accept file attachments. They request that you send your resume in the body of an email only. A properly formatted ASCII e-resume allows you to cut and paste your resume into the body of an email, send it over any email system in the world, and be sure that your resume will look the same no matter where it is sent.
What is a Scannable Resume?
Many corporations and job banks store resumes in large databases. To do this, they use scanners to scan resumes into their computers. Later on, when they need to fill job openings, they simply go through their electronic database and find candidates to fill these posts. Scannable resumes require specific page designs because computer scanners cannot read certain items.
What is Resume Distribution?
ResumeWriters.com now allows you to distribute your resume to recruiters! When you select to use our resume distribution product you will have your resume sent to hundreds of recruiters and companies who are looking to hire people like you. You will also receive an after-distribution report describing how many, and which recruiters your resume was sent to. The distribution can be targeted by:
Up to 3 industries
Up to 3 states/geographic locations
The best part about this service is that it makes use of our opt-in recruiter database. Only recruiters and employers who are actively filling positions are in our database. This service has a retail value of $100 on other sites! We are offering this product for $75, a significant discount available only to ResumeWriters.com customers.
After your resume is written, the writer will distribute the resume to the current list of active recruiters. You can direct the writer to chose specific industries and localities, or you can opt to have the writer choose for you, based on your career profile.
If you are applying to a job bank or a medium to large-sized corporation or company, you must have a scannable copy of your resume. A scannable resume is an invaluable part of your job searching arsenal because you never know when you'll need one. When applying for work, it's a good idea to phone ahead of time and find out if the company you are applying to scans their resume submissions.
Do I Need a Cover Letter?
In almost all cases, the answer is yes. This goes for scannable resumes and electronic resumes as well. A cover letter is a professional courtesy that is as important and as traditional as a handshake or a "thank-you." It accompanies any resume you send, and is a way of introducing yourself, and explaining why this resume has shown up on the reader's desk. Follow-up letters are a similar courtesy that you send after an interview or phone conversation. They are just a polite way of reminding your contact that you're there, and you're still interested in the job.
All the cover letters and follow-up letters we design can be used multiple times. We simply write a personalized, professional body to the letter, based upon your unique personal information. We then leave blanks for you to change the address and recipient's name. This way, you can use our cover letters and follow-up letters every time you send out a resume.
How Do We Deliver the Resumes We Write?
All of our finished documents are emailed to you by the deadline as a file attachment to an email. The file attachment is in the form of a MSWord .doc file that should be readable by any MSWord program. If you do not use MSWord or cannot view such a file, arrangements can be made to send the file in a different format. Additionally, we have hard copy mailing options, utilizing the United States Postal Service for delivery
