How Executives Really Get Jobs

Are you not getting responses to your resume? Are headhunters giving you the cold shoulder that chased you in the past? It may not be you. It may just be your job search strategy.

FACT: 97% of the job search advice “out there” is for 97% of the population. If you are being hired for an expertise others at the company don’t have, you are in the 3%. If you are in the C-suite, that definitely includes YOU.

Which means the job search strategy that works for the other 97% of the workforce will leave you frustrated and discouraged, wasting your valuable time.

Because she coaches executives looking for their next opportunity and still maintains her professional contacts in the business and recruiting world, Saundra is an expert on how executives get hired today.

You’ll get her fresh, honest take on:

• The truth about hidden jobs
• Your resume’s actual role in your search
• How to make your network work for you
• The best ways to make your LinkedIn profile stand out
• The most time-efficient and level-best approach to your job search strategy
