Executive resumes are, basically, required if you are applying for a position in a high-level management career and, therefore, differ from standard ones. What’s the difference? Executive resumes contain a tiny answer to the question that means a lot for every recruiter. So, your resume should explain the benefits that a company would get if you were hired. High-level recruiters, CEOs, COOs, CFOs, or Board Members want to receive a convincing answer to the question “What’s in it FOR ME?” You are not supposed to write how brilliant your skills are. You are supposed to show the way you are going to increase sales, improve working conditions, develop new strategies, raise money or solve particular problems.
