Launch a Successful Executive Job Search with Expert Strategies
Luck favors the prepared, they say. This is so true. As a career management coach and certified executive resume writer, I have witnessed the HUGE difference it makes when a client is strategic in his/her job search.
Where Should You Start?
That is the first question my executive-level clients ask after we have developed and polished their new career marketing tools.
You can’t plot a course of action without information and a winning roadmap!
So, first things first. Write down your next-level career goal so that your career journey and marketing documents are crystal clear.
Get ready. Have your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, biography, and other job search tools revamped and branded.
Follow career experts on Social media. You will find a great list below of some of the top pros that immediately came to mind.
