Traditionally, hobbies and interests are not listed on a resume.

The Job and Roles of Your Resume
In today’s limited and aggressive job world, your resume must grasp the attention of an employer or recruiter immediately. This means that your resume must showcase you as a can’t-pass-up candidate who jumps straight to the top of the executive selection process. At Executive Resume, the executive resume writing pro does that, helping you climb to the top. If you are pondering on how your current resume compares against my standard for success, I offer a free initial review that discusses the strengths and weaknesses of your current resume and executive writing. Your reviewer will be none other than our owner, Kim Little, a highly-published resume specialist with incredible recommendations on LinkedIn.
Since 2000, Kim’s work has been highly acclaimed and published; some of her executive resume samples appear in the Gallery of Best Resumes, A Collection of Quality Resumes by Professional Resume Writers, which only includes the work of the best of a select number of resume writers out of 500 candidates.
Why Our Resumes Stand Out
A client recently passed on this note to us: “Mike, thank you for submitting your resume to us for review… I have some good news: This is a strong resume, so you should be happy with it! I don’t think you would benefit from having our staff professionally rewrite your document. I would advise that you use this executive resume for a while. See if you get results—I suspect you will.” And:
“I took the liberty of showing the resume to a couple of recruiter friends who thought it was pretty outstanding compared to some of the senior resumes that come their way…they really liked your Executive Overview, Skills and Qualification Summaries…”

The resumes we create show our clients as top contenders for positions because they have the potential to routinely exceed the expectations of any employer. We accompany our resume writing services by offering a complete career marketing solution that includes not just assertive resume writing but also powerful, professional, and confidential career guidance. Our services are light years apart from resume writing mills who offer to do the job “cheap and fast” while offering no samples but vague “About Us” pages that did not mention the owner’s name.
To produce great results in an executive search, you need the most effective resume possible and a considerable search effort that is beyond the capabilities of most resume writing services. Executive Resume Pro uses some key strategies that have proved effective over time:
- We focus on how you achieved growth oriented bottom-line results and offer key stories to illustrate.
- We emphasize how you are a productive, forward thinker who has excelled in strategic planning, technology innovation, profitability, best practices, and operational development.
- We present your executive brand, highlight your strategic vision, and describe the corporate environments where you have succeeded.
By showing how you’ve been successful in diverse leadership settings, we package you as a high quality, flexible leader, which cements your value as a potential employee. Without making these links apparent in your executive resume, you may shortchange yourself by not coming across strongly. For ideas on how to improve your resume and improve your job search using some of our techniques, read our Guide to Writing Resumes for Executives.
