Sometimes, all that is keeping you out of a c-level career is your online brand, your web presence that outlines your abilities and internet “footprint.” Other times, it is your resume. Often, it is both and that is a big deal! The question is, are those two things working for you in a positive way or are you on the edge of c-level?
If it has been years since you tried to find another position, you need to understand that things have really changed. It used to be much easier to keep a hold on your impressions within the work world, but now you have to work a bit harder. You may be great at the face-to-face networking that is an essential asset, but online social networking might not be high on your list of things to do. This is a mistake, because today, the people who are vetting job candidates are looking online. If you do not have a strong presence, you are not on their radar.
Why, some ask, would a c-level executive professional decide to hire someone else to write a resume or develop an online brand? I’m sure you are thinking, “Wouldn’t the fact they are capable of planning the strategic infrastructure of a Fortune 500 company and negotiate multi-million dollar partnerships mean they can do this themselves?” Well, I can see how you might think that is true, but executive professionals know the importance of having a great online brand and they take full advantage of the resources available to them (and you!).
Leadership professionals usually will rely on a professional resume writer and other professional services because they are used to outsourcing tasks that require high levels of expertise. There is a skill to the complexity of assessing career progression and leveraging data to create a personal marketing campaign. Only the highest quality of a complete Executive Resume Package yields results by positioning you to get the job you want.
For many of those who are busy working in their current positions and not paying attention to the new demands in the job market, it is good to add the discounted Executive Recruiter Distribution or Online Branding Power Package. Whether or not you need them can be determined during the initial consultation – an hour of strategic consultation that includes discussing branding. If you do need it, this can amp up your online to the level that is necessary to remain competitive within the market!
