Whether you currently hold a place in the executive ranks or view that as your next career move, you know how critical it is to use effective techniques with a compelling presentation to convince employers to talk to you. You probably also recognize the importance of networking in your executive job search, particularly if you’re in a competitive market with many highly qualified candidates.
I have worked with job- and career-change executives for many years, in a variety of industries and functional areas. In addition to applying my own expertise to your project, I tap into a large network of professional colleagues to gather further input on key issues.
Here are just a few of the client and industry categories I’ve worked with over the past 15+ years:
As part of our collaboration, I do the following:
My executive-level clients typically have an existing resume. However, often it isn’t up to date or they feel it doesn’t represent them effectively in terms of their present career goals. Whatever your circumstances might be, I will work closely with you to ensure development of the professional-quality marketing tools you need.
When I believe your situation calls for more than a traditional executive resume, I will recommend one or more of the following from the portfolio of executive resume writing services I offer:
The same goes for your resume and other career-related materials. There’s no substitute for excellence in content, planning, and presentation–no second chance to make a good first impression.
I can create a professional resume that positions you as a top-quality candidate in the eyes of employers and helps you stand out strongly from your competition for the position you’re pursuing.
How long does it take? Delivery of the initial proof copy or draft normally occurs within 5-7 work-days after I have all your information. Start-to-finish, the whole process typically takes less than two weeks.
I can create or revamp your profile so you can more easily catch the attention of employers who search LinkedIn for senior management and executive candidates. I will develop content that you can use to enhance your existing profile or create one, along with relevant explanations of how to best use the information.
LinkedIn is a great way to build your professional network and open doors to new opportunities. It offers a digital window into your business experience. Creating a strong LinkedIn profile presents you as a serious professional and helps attract like-minded business professionals to you–including not only prospective employers but also potential resources (connections) who could increase your value to your current employer.
My one-hour LinkedIn coaching session can help you identify critical ways to make LinkedIn work for you, both during your current job search and beyond.
Remember: If LinkedIn isn’t working effectively for you, it’s in effect working against you because you’re all but invisible to potential employers.
Career management services can help you execute smooth job and career transitions, learn interview techniques that will boost your success rate, and avoid or greatly reduce the frequent mistakes even senior-level job seekers make when they assume planning is an option instead of a necessity.
Knowing where you want to go represents a critical part of the career management process. If you don’t have a reasonably clear goal in mind, I recommend getting clarity through my career coaching services, which include exploration and evaluation of possible career choices.
As the saying goes, “Luck is not a strategy.” As a senior professional who holds a position with significant responsibility, you undoubtedly plan critical initiatives carefully and well ahead of the time they need to be in place. Why? Because getting caught unprepared is not an outcome your company would view favorably!
Your ongoing career success requires the same degree of careful attention and timely action. Missing a great career opportunity because you weren’t paying enough attention or weren’t ready for it is something you want to prevent if at all possible.
By the same token, you don’t want to discover that you’re sadly uprepared when a crisis erupts–such as a disaster at your company–and puts your position at risk. A situation like that is disturbing on two counts: (1) It leaves you floundering about what to do next; and (2) It could probably have been avoided!
Career Planning and Success:
You risk achieving hit-or-miss results if you adopt a haphazard approach to your career. For lasting career success and satisfaction, it’s important that you pay attention to all the critical aspects, including the following:
