Executive Resumes

Our clients are COOs, CMOs, and other senior execs seeking their next executive or board member position at leading global organizations. They need to get noticed. They need their resume to be different AND better.

Put an expert on your job search team.

Why do so many executives trust Briefcase Coach to get the job done?

  • Unmatched track record: with one of the highest referral rates in the industry, the proof is in our clients’ endorsements.
  • Cutting edge expertise: The Briefcase Coach team has unparalleled knowledge of the demands of high-level recruitment, and ATS systems, across virtually all industries.
  • C-Suite-Level Branding: a polished resume simply isn’t enough at this level; our clients benefit from executive branding to ensure search committees will not miss your true value.

In short, Briefcase Coach clients know we get the job done. And we do so by being far more than just executive resume writers. We’re like branding and PR for your executive brand.

Custom Resume Writers

You are unique.  You’re not your boss. You’re not your mentor. You are your own unique brand and deserve a distinct document that outlines your results and value proposition. So what makes our custom approach achieve better results than the typical resume writing service?

We are the exact opposite of ChatGPT.

Every resume looks different because every job seeker is different. We take research, strategy, and content creation seriously. We do not use templates or artificial intelligence to streamline our writing process. As advanced resume writers, we spend an average of 15-25 hours per senior executive resume.

We have advanced degrees and industry experience.

Every Briefcase Coach resume client will work directly with the founder, Sarah Johnston, on their resume.  Sarah has a small team of writers supporting research, writing, and editing efforts. Every executive writer is North American based, and many have advanced degrees from top-tiered universities (Emory, Washington University, UNC Chapel Hill, and Columbia). Members of the Briefcase Coach writing team have had successful careers in executive search, medicine, law, federal grant writing, and public relations.

We are intentionally small.

We don’t take on a lot of clients because we want to provide high-touch service to the job seekers we serve. We do require a no-obligation discovery call to book our services.  This call gives you the opportunity to ask questions, ensure a mutual fit, and align on expectations. 

Turnaround time for executive resume package development is typically 7 business days from consultation to draft delivery. Our fees are similar to what you might pay an accountant, attorney, or management consultant. They are also comparable to other regarded industry professionals.

“I am overwhelmed with gratitude that so much thought and effort was put into this. I know it’s what you are hired to do, but truly to be able to talk to someone for 90 minutes and capture someone like this is a special talent.

“Briefcase Coach truly stands out as the best storyteller for C-level executives and board members. The end-to-end process I went through developing my story was immaculate, user-friendly, and transparent.

I must share that I didn’t know what I was getting into when I first contacted My Briefcase Coach.  Moreover, I had no clear understanding of what a successful outcome may resemble. The resume you provided more than exceeded my expectations. I now realize the more I personally worked on my resume, the more I failed to capture my experience.  Perhaps I had become too accustomed to seeing it.  The perspective you brought to the engagement was long overdue.
