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

Executive Resume Writing for Professionals
Job hunting, but not receiving interest even though you’re fully qualified? Not being called for interviews even after submitting what you consider a compelling executive resume? If that’s the case, you may want to rework your executive resume to ensure that the resume clearly demonstrates why you are the leading candidate for key positions. The best way to effectively present and position yourself as a top contender is to work with the resume specialists at Executive Resume Pro who, since 1997, have turned thousands of jobseekers into clients who landed the job they deserved. Our compelling resumes sell our clients as valuable future employees who can make unique contributions and deliver sustainable results. With 20 years of expertise in employing proven executive resume writing strategies, we have gained a reputation as one of the most respected leaders in the professional executive resume writing industry – and we have a 70%+ referral rate to prove it.
What Your Resume Must Do
In today’s competitive job arena, your resume must capture the attention of a recruiter immediately. This means that it must effectively present you as a viable candidate who merits top consideration in the executive selection process. Our resumes do that, and yours can too. If you wonder how your current resume stacks up against our standards for effectiveness, we offer a confidential, free resume review that points out the strengths and weaknesses of your current document. Your reviewer will be none other than our owner, Kim Little, a highly published resume specialist with many positive recommendations on Linkedin.com.
Since 2000, Kim’s work has been highly praised 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.
