Getting the Attention of a Decision Maker When You Are Over 50

LinkedIn is a place recruiters and corporate decision makers always turn to for candidates. However, all too often candidates simply have a “copy their resume” approach to their profile. ExecuNet Director of Coaching Services Harriette Lowenthal says to distinguish yourself, especially when you’re over 50, she prefers highlighting the About section and taking a personalized approach – but not one that reads like a bio.

Strategist Mark Brodsky advises making sure the right search words are embedded in the listing of your competencies. He also suggests being thorough in listing your special interests groups.

Listen to them explain in this excerpt from ExecuNet Master Class.
