The Captivating Executive Resume Template uses a very traditional resume layout made modern by color and graphics. With lots of room to call out both accomplishments and keywords, Captivating is a great choice as an executive resume template or for any experienced professional.
What makes for a good executive resume template? Some key factors include space to focus the resume and call out the executive’s personal brand. The Captivating Collection provides space for the very important focus headline plus subheadings that can be used to communicate a personal brand and value proposition. The graphic in the executive summary section can be used to highlight four major executive brand traits.
Keywords are important in an executive resume, just like all modern resumes, and the executive resume template in the Captivating collection includes an executive core competencies section in addition to providing space for a keyword phrase relating to each accomplishment listed in the career highlights section of the resume.
Modern resumes are also more succinct than resumes of the past, and this is illustrated in the layout and format of Captivating’s resume template. The scope section of each employment experience provides even more space for keywords relating to the responsibilities of the position. This is a far more succinct way of communicating the scope of a position than writing a dense paragraph.
Like all our templates, everything, including the color scheme, is easily customizable. The Captivating resume takes on a whole new “look and feel” when you change the colors.
The Captivating executive biography template and letterhead template are designed to coordinate with our Captivating Resume template.
As with all our template collections, MS Word is required.
