Attention Executives
Considering a Career Change...

Did you know that:

Used correctly, a professionally written executive resume, combined with customized job search strategies, directly contributes to more interviews, better positions, bigger offers and a faster career transition... in other words, it pays for itself.

Repeated surveys show that decision-makers are 6 times more responsive to images that express professionalism, attention to detail and a "sense of caring" about identity. The appearance of your executive resume matters – it is your first impression. If you are a Board Member, CEO, COO, CFO, CIO, CTO Executive, President, SVP or Director looking for your next executive position, a crisp, focused and well-designed resume that tells your story is a critical component to your success.

After working with me, my clients often are able to change industries, move to their desired global locations, overcome liabilities and challenges, land higher positions and salary packages ranging on average from $5k to $35K and even $100k more than their previous salaries. Additionally they have also come out of retirement, gone successfully into management consulting and secured outside directorships.

Today's job market is tougher than ever. Leadership resumes have changed dramatically in the last 5 years and every edge you give yourself to stay compelling and relevant means less competition, less frustration and more career options for you.

If you are currently unemployed or know you will be in the near future, how much is your job search going to cost you each month in lost wages... thousands or tens of thousands? Even more, what kind of price can you put on retaining your confidence in a job search? Your executive resume matters.

My ability to show my CXO / executive clients how to tap into the hidden job market, confidently land the positions they want, shorten and de-stress their job search and in many cases, dramatically increase their salaries - has earned me a special reputation: 85%+ referral-generated business and a 99.9% client satisfaction rating.
