This board resume template is especially popular among professional resume writers who are creating resumes for executive clients seeking board appointments. It is also a popular choice among DIY candidates seeking to transform their own resume with a board resume template.
While the template was designed with the needs of board candidates in mind, it can also be a good choice for any traditional executive resume too.
Board resumes should be written to call out the strengths that are especially relevant on boards and sought in board candidates. While every board is different and you should seek to write your board resume to address the specific needs of a specific board, there are also qualifications that are more broadly sought in board candidates. If you have these qualifications, you should showcase them. Some of these core competencies sought on boards include:
- Financial and budgeting skills
- P&L management experience
- Corporate strategy planning
- Investments due diligence
- Mergers & Acquisitions experience
- Regulatory compliance
- Risk management
- Executive succession and compensation planning
- Global business and international markets experience
- and much more (this article provides a good summary of what to include on your board resume)
Soft skills can also be important on your board resume. For example, the ability to maintain confidentiality, cultural adaptability, articulate communication skills, and global perspective.
The board resume template in our Boardscape Collection has an elegant appearance.
IMPORTANT: While the content of this resume is all "readable" by an ATS, the format of this resume could cause issues with an ATS. For this reason, it is best to use it primarily for networking situations. While the text is all readable by an ATS, the structure of the resume might "confuse" the way the text is read into and stored in an ATS (in other words, the sections might not be properly categorized)

WHAT OUR TEMPLATE USERS SAY
Appearances matter, even with the written word, and how a document looks can make an immediate impact on the decision to read it or toss it aside. I train and mentor many excellent resume writers who have mastered the art of crafting highly effective resume content, but who lack the basic MS Word skills to create eye-catching, ATS compatible and uniquely branded documents. Distinctive Templates are the perfect solution for easily transforming well-written content into works of art that capture attention, generate interest, and motivate the recipient to read every word.
While I primarily write resumes from scratch for each of my clients, I have also used Michelle’s templates and received great feedback. I find the templates are especially helpful to organize my thinking for those clients who have an overabundance of important information that still must fit in an ATS-friendly, 2-page format without looking cluttered or disorganized.
When I was starting out with resume writing a little over a year ago, one of the most intimidating aspects was visual design of resumes. I didn’t want to have to learn graphic design to stand out—and with these templates, I didn’t need to! I was a little hesitant at first because I thought the templates might be too rigid or generic. In actuality, they are incredibly flexible and easy to play around with. I can customize any template with my client’s favorite colors in just two clicks—which means they never look exactly the same, even if I use them for multiple clients. Using the templates means I can just do what I do best—write—and then plug the text right into the appropriate section. It saves me literal HOURS of work and hassle. One of the best parts about purchasing from Michelle is that she is extremely responsive to questions. There’s a private Facebook group where she records screen share tutorials about how to switch up certain elements in the templates, and she's always been responsive to my emailed questions. My clients are completely thrilled with the unique, modern design of their resume, and I’m thrilled that I'm saving time and don’t have to learn graphic design!
I love Michelle’s resume templates! The designs are eye-catching and easy to use. I highly recommend these templates for anyone who finds that designing a creative, contemporary formatted resume is a challenge. They’re a huge time-saver.
I used the “Pivot” template to create a combination functional/chronological resume for my first big client. Her words when she saw the finished product: “THIS IS AMAZING!” I’m a writer, not a designer. My resumes aren’t unprofessional, but they needed a “wow” factor – and now they have it. Thank you, Michelle, for offering such affordably priced tools!
