I recently talked with Tim Muma, Radio Program Coordinator at LocalJobNetwork.com, for the site’s new series Executive Decisions. What did we focus on? The executive resume, of course.
Tim had fantastic questions, with no topic off-limits. Why does an executive even need a resume? Won’t they just be recruited directly? Well, that would be nice, but it doesn’t quite happen that way.
Even if you’re directly recruited, you’ll suddenly get asked for your resume… and that’s where you’ll wish you’d taken the time to produce a strong story (or at least the one that gets an employer to take action).
And what should be on that resume when it finally makes it into the hands of decision-makers? If you’ve read my tips in the past, you know that metrics are what I emphasize. The scope and percentages behind your work are critical.
You can hear the details, including my strategies for connecting your job title and seemingly disjointed work experience into a cohesive story, here.
Enjoy! (Thank you, Tim.)
