Professional or Executive Resume What’s the Difference

If you do a web search for “professional resume vs executive resume,” you will find an awful lot of stuff out there, but you will not find a universal definition for each role. The definition tends to be different depending on where in the world you are based. In fact, Asian job culture tends to put the title of “executive” at the opposite end of the career track, which can cause an awful lot of confusion as more and more companies go global. It is a good idea to try to go past all of the labels and take a look at where you currently are in your career and what you want to accomplish in the future. After you do this, take your list to compare it to what kind of resume you need: Professional or Executive in the world of Healthcare IT.

Professional Resume Services offers both Professional Resume and Executive Resume packages.

Here is how they differ:

Executive Resumes are exclusively designed for executive management in healthcare, and C-level positions. For those who are prepared to be at the head of an organization. They can earn well over $100,000+ annually and they carry all of the responsibility of the power to control every major decision. These executive resumes must show that you are up to the task of leadership decisions that will affect many people and lives.

Professional Resumes are just as important, but they are designed to show your competency for a completely different kind of responsibility. Professionals, specialists, etc. with five or more years of reliability and experience who have gradually created a name for themselves in healthcare. These are the people who understand how to work with their department to best get the desired results for all involved. There is leadership responsibility, but with much more hands on daily tasking.
