Executive Resume

An executive resume should show the progression that you have made in your career and also highlight job titles and positions you have held. When you create an executive resume, you may want to choose either the chronological or functional resume style so that the high points of your career and your prior career experiences are emphasized over your educational or volunteer experiences.

You can also create a professional profile that itemizes skills that you have learned during your career. You should use assertive words and phrases like “profit management,” “financial analysis,” and “risk management” that will catch job recruiters' attention.
