A great choice as a resume template for experienced candidates and executives, the resume and coordinating documents in the Purple Haze Collection can also be used as templates for board of director candidates.
The Success Highlights section of this resume template for experienced candidates can be used as a chronological summary of your career history, providing just the highlights of your contributions to each employer, followed by the more detailed Experience History section. While this template is set up as a two-page resume, it can easily expand to three pages. While two pages are always preferable, it is common for an executive resume to run over three pages and this format is especially popular in this situation. This is because the Success Highlights section provides an "at a glance" summary of your career experience followed by a more detailed summary, and allows you to call attention to career highlights from an early career that may otherwise go unnoticed.
Besides just a template for experienced candidates, this format can also be a great choice for career changers. In this case, you would use the Success Highlights section to call out the most relevant qualifications in your background, related to the career change you wish to make. Rather than listing company names in the left column, use the left column to categorize the achievements with keyword phrases. When used in this way, this is what is known as a hybrid format resume.
