With lots of room to call out both accomplishments and keywords, Captivating is a great choice not just as an executive resume template, but also for any experienced professional. You can see this executive resume template in action on this example C-level executive resume.
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.
Available separately, the Captivating executive biography template and letterhead template are designed to coordinate with our Captivating Resume template. See all templates in the collection:

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!
