How to write your own Account Executive resume?
1. Clearly describe your work experience in a relevant area
Account execs largely have the role of a salesperson. Communicating with clients to get them on board on a project proposed by their employer, so that the employer may make money.
The skills for all that comes with this cannot be learned immediately. They are fostered over a long period of time. Due to that, it is important that you have gathered relevant work experience in the field and describe it in your resume. The more years spent in sales-related positions the better. Try to be clear and succinct in your descriptions though, you do not want to dumb your reader down.

2. Shed some light on what you could talk about with clients
Communications skills are also something that is fostered over a period of time and activities which fill it out. Hobbies which you can engage clients with are always a good way to break the ice to make negotiations more pleasurable for all parties.
Be sure to mention any such activities somewhere in your resume. Recruiters know that these things can really make for a successful account exec or salesperson. One could also potentially make use of someone’s educative background in case a client is an alumnus of the same school as the salesperson. Nostalgia is a powerful conversation driver.

3. Give insights into how useful you would be in a workplace
Something missing from this particular resume sample is a mention of the applicant’s administrative and workplace toolkit. It is good to give recruiters an indication of how you can handle work that is not necessarily your main responsibility. Bookkeeping, filing documents, fluent usage of the Microsoft Office suite,... All of these are something that a good worker should have and cannot simply be implied as included in a B.S. from Accounting from seven years ago.
