Executive & Professional Resumes, LinkedIn Profiles and More

What is your Brand?

Your Brand is more than a Resume.

As an Executive, a Business Leader, or a Professional, you bring value to your company, your employees and your clients. You have unique talents, abilities, and achievements  that distinguishes you from your colleagues and competitors. And we don’t just mean the titles you hold, and your degrees and credentials—your brand is more than that.   You are a business leader, a team leader, a passionate professional. It’s your professional Vision and Point of View, your authentic personality.  It’s also how you’re perceived in your industry by colleagues, employees and the larger community.

This is your professional brand and what is unique about you. To land that choice position, executive role or business opportunity, we make a strong case for why you should be selected.

We help you identify, define and capture your brand in a distinctive, engaging, compelling and memorable presentation in a Resume, CV, or Bio and LinkedIn ProfileWe elevate your experience, talents and accomplishments, reflect your unique leadership and your personality.

Executive Resumes, Bios and Profiles

C-Suite, EVP, SVP, VP, and Regional and Global Director roles

Hi-Point’s resumes are highly customized and personalized to the individual, executive level and industry.   We never use templates and create resumes from scratch from interviewing you and gathering information about your leadership style, personality, accomplishments, your values, strengths and what distinguishes your unique brand.  We use bold, compelling wording that elevates your stature and significance as a leader.

At the executive level, your resume will be viewed by executive search firms and executive recruiters so it has  to have more visual appeal.  In fact, the modern Executive Resume has color, graphic design, graphs and charts to break up text and takes the reader to what you want to emphasize about your career.  Please see samples of executive resumes below. 

We also develop Bios which are appropriate for consulting, board positions and for public speaking.  Our Bios are typically one page and we can create a shorter version with up to 300 words.

Why you need an Executive or Professional Resume to Catapult your Career?

 A well-crafted Executive or Professional Resume is vital to your career transition in multiple ways:

✔  Resumes have drastically changed in style and content and are now focused on accomplishments, leadership style and your crowning achievements.

✔  An outdated resume can set you back and take you out of competition.

✔  Executive search firms, recruiters, and HR specialists seek candidates whose resumes have a clearly articulated value proposition.

✔  For those seeking to advance to an executive position, our Resume will elevate your brand, land more interviews for upper level positions for a higher title, and ultimately more compensation.

Why a LinkedIn Profile is Critical in Today's Digitally Connected World?

A well-crafted LinkedIn Profile is part of your brand and vital to your career transition in multiple ways:

✔  An optimized, well written and key word aligned LinkedIn profile will attract executives search firms, recruiters, and talent acquisition specialists who are constantly scouring LinkedIn for candidates. LinkedIn is the No. 1 platform for recruiting candidates. Don’t have sparse or poorly worded profile and be overlooked by recruiters.

✔   Because your social media profile is more widely viewed than your resume and has many more features than a static resume, we add your  skills, awards, organizational affiliations, volunteer work, patents, publications, and articles.

✔  Your profile is a 3-D depiction of all your accomplishments and experience. We can add project descriptions and collateral to add greater depth to your experience.

My Social Media Coaching and Guidance includes:

✔  How to expand your professional network, and get noticed by peers in your industry leading to useful connections that will potentially lead to your next position.

How to mine LinkedIn for job prospecting and also for business development and lead generation. 

✔ How to get the most from both free and subscription based LinkedIn programs. 

Letters of Introduction

Your letter of Introduction can be a powerful and memorable way to market yourself.

✔ Why they should hire you.
✔ What distinguishes you from your competitors.
✔ How your experience or skills translate to the target position.

We write letters of introduction and cover letters that pull together your experience in an attention grabbing way to have hiring managers notice and call you.

select Testimonials

 I would love to share my story with you…as I would not have been prepared for this without your support and coaching. Thank you for your time, insight and expertise during my transition process. I am happy to report that starting this week I am consulting for a Fortune 500 company, producing branded content for a Q1 new product launch. My field and skill set may be difficult for outsiders to understand, but your consulting bio helped me get the contract I wanted. I could not have locked this particular client without your help.

With Susanna’s guidance, support and re-branding of my resume and profile, I’ve landed a new C-Suite position with a new medical group.

Her writing is superlative and she is able to create a cohesive career story and brand of my expertise.
