Six-Figure Hotline: How Can ExecuNet Help Me Define My Value Proposition?

value-proposition-sign-Dave OptonAs part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a monthly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline, where members call in to ask the career questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about career issues that are important to executives today. In one such call, I was joined by ExecuNet’s Managing Director of Career Services, Don Weintraub. Don is a former recruiter, executive career expert, holds a Master’s Degree in counseling, and is our networking meeting facilitator in Boston.

On this call, a member asked us, “How can ExecuNet help me define my value proposition?”

Don has done several Master Classes for our members on exactly that. Here is some of what he had to say:

    Dear Mr. Opton.
    Congratulations on your success. I know from experience how hard it is to start a new company. I have done that three times now. I speak on behalf of myself, but feel that many others feel the same way that I do. When did working all your life to build business become a disability? Almost every recruiter that I speak to thinks that I have built the resume that I have and am only 35 years old. It would be nice if HR departments were filled with seasoned veterans and not Dougie Howser. Also, most of us are not interested in working on a “commission only” basis for health/life insurance companies. Have a great day.
