With a 60-Day Interview Guarantee that speaks for itself, you can sleep easy knowing that your satisfaction is our #1 priority.

C-Level Resume Examples

We’ve included some C-level resume examples available from the writing services on our list so you can get a better idea of what it takes to make a C-level executive resume great. Take a look at these two examples (first page only). As you can see, C-level resumes need a combination of a sharp appearance that grabs your attention and focused language that is easy for hiring authorities to digest at a glance.

This eye-catching CEO resume sample comes from Find My Profession (ranked #1 on this list):

Here is another eye-catching and strategically formatted example from Riklan Resources (ranked #4 on this list):

10 Best C-Level Resume Writing Services in America (2019)

While eye-catching graphics can look great on a resume, they typically are not Applicant Tracking System (ATS) compatible, meaning your resume will never make it to the hands of the hiring manager. Make sure to ask your writer if their resumes are ATS compatible.

As you seek out the best C-suite resume writer for you, be sure to have a thorough look at all the samples available so you can get an idea of the marketing value your prospective resume writer has to offer you. If you don’t find samples on a company’s website, ask them to send you some by email. A good writer never minds providing samples.
