Your résumé has one job: to get you interviews. In order to do this, it must convince the prospective employer that, above anyone else, you’re the one they need in the target role. Partnering with me ensures that your résumé will communicate very powerful and distinct messages about you and your leadership—that you understand what makes businesses run successfully, and you possess the skills and acumen to contribute value from day one.
Customized Cover Letter
The cover letter is an absolutely vital partner to the résumé. Many executives cringe at the thought of writing customized letters for each job target. However, this is a critical part of an effective job search. While you’ll receive a basic cover letter template with your résumé, you may come across an opportunity that requires more specific detail. Enlisting my help will ensure that you have a dynamic, persuasive cover letter tailored exclusively to the opportunity, role, or person you want to target.
With more than 660 million users, there’s no doubt that LinkedIn is an essential element of the executive job search. With a 2,000-character limit for each section, your LinkedIn profile must be both engaging and concise! Since it’s designed to be searchable by recruiters and prospective employers, your profile also should include rich keywords that increase your page views. 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.
