The post-interview thank you letter presents an opportunity for you to seal the deal, so to speak. Even if you nailed the interview, you can use this letter to reiterate key talking points or highlight other aspects of your experience that weren’t discussed. And, if the interview was less than perfect, it gives you the opportunity to clarify any responses that may not have been delivered as smoothly as you would have liked.

Development & Optimization
There’s no doubt that LinkedIn is an essential element of the executive job search, but did you consider how powerful this online presence can be in establishing or maintaining your personal brand and/or positioning you as a noted thought leader? The LinkedIn profile must be both engaging and concise, and since it’s designed to be searchable by recruiters and prospective employers, it must also include rich keywords to increase your probability of being found.
Having written LinkedIn profiles since the platform’s inception, I know exactly what’s needed to capture the salient points of your career and create a robust, compelling profile.

An executive biography can serve multiple purposes. Within the scope of the job search, it can serve as an alternative to the résumé for distribution to network contacts or during the informational interview (situations where presenting your résumé may not be appropriate). Another popular use is a shorter “speaker’s biography” used for others to introduce you as a speaker or panelist at events and conferences.
