I want to give you an interim report on my download and set up to do a couple of proposals. The system and the improved way you have arranged the Wizard is simply fabulous! I am impressed and excited about my first two proposals I did and sent to clients. The platform is intuitive and user friendly. While I may have a couple of minor questions later on, for now I am set. I am going to refer a couple of my associates directly to you later this month."


Components of a Resume Proposal

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a resume proposal. Proposal Kit templates can be customized as needed to fit any situation using the extensive chapter template library. Here are some key chapters typically included in this type of template. Use this template as your starting point and customize it as needed using the software included with each Proposal Pack or the Professional bundle.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as a brief introduction to the candidate. It highlights their enthusiasm for the position and provides a preview of what to expect in the attached documents. In a Resume Proposal, this section is tailored to the specific job or opportunity, expressing why the candidate is the right fit and how their background aligns with the role.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary gives a concise overview of the candidate's professional history and major accomplishments. It is designed to quickly capture the attention of the reader and provide a snapshot of the candidate's most compelling qualifications. This section often emphasizes leadership roles, key achievements, and unique skills that make the candidate stand out.


In the Qualifications section, the candidate lists their relevant skills, certifications, and educational background that make them suitable for the job. For a Resume Proposal, it's crucial to align these qualifications with the job description, ensuring that the candidate meets or exceeds the requirements of the position.


The Portfolio section showcases examples of the candidate's work, providing tangible proof of their abilities. This could include project summaries, links to work samples, or descriptions of notable achievements. In a Resume Proposal, this section underscores the candidate's hands-on experience and the quality of their past work.


The Resume chapter is a detailed account of the candidate's work history, education, and other professional experiences. For a Resume Proposal, it should be formatted to highlight the most relevant experiences and accomplishments that align with the job being pursued. This chapter serves as the backbone of the proposal, offering a comprehensive overview of the candidate's career.

Letters of Reference

The Letters of Reference section includes endorsements from previous employers, colleagues, or clients. These references provide third-party validation of the candidate's skills, work ethic, and professional demeanor. In a Resume Proposal, these letters are selected to match the job requirements, giving a strong supporting testimony to the candidate's suitability.
