The worldwide economic slump has resulted in a number of erstwhile stable companies across different business sectors resorting to job cuts and lay-offs, according to recent online posts from International Business Times and ABC News Australia (02/13), prompting locally based global executive career consultancy Resumés Australia to release the "Executive Candidate Survival Guide" to aid those saddled by these employment difficulties.

Having an Executive Resume will influence the number of interviews you get; it will also play a vital role in the salary you can command, and with it, affect the quality of job offers you receive – in other words, it sets the bar for everything.

Amid recent reports on the global financial crisis pushing banking, manufacturing, retail, mining and even construction firms to resort to job cuts and lay-offs, Resumés Australia Principal Kylie Hammond steps forward with the release of the Resumés Australia "Executive Candidate Survival Guide."

Co-written by Hammond and her Lead Resumé Writer Tom Hannemann, the survival guide “was developed to assist executive candidates through the process of applying and interviewing for top-level positions as well as negotiating their salary package – a must-have resource for all those who unfortunately will have to go job-seeking again,” Hammond explains, adding that, “[t]he tips and hints contained within this guide come from many years of experience in the executive search industry and dealing with a large variety of companies and HR professionals.”

“Executives who are armed with this inside knowledge will greatly increase their chances of success in their job search,” she points out. The guide specifically covers topics such as Resumé/CV Writing, Interview and Career Coaching, and Salary Negotiations. Since launching the eBook, Resumés Australia have recorded nearly 10,000 downloads. This indicates the level of competition out there in the market place. Those who are not up to speed with current job-seeking methods are missing out.

Asked about how these topics all play in today’s precarious employment situation, she states that “climbing the corporate ladder is a process that most often starts with a Professional Resumé. In order to secure an interview for any executive position, having an outstanding resumé is essential. Having an Executive Resumé will influence the number of interviews you get; it will also play a vital role in the salary you can command, and with it, affect the quality of job offers you receive – in other words, it sets the bar for everything.

"The importance of a good resumé should not be underestimated. It truly is one of the most important documents you possess and is the main bridge between you and your future. The time, effort and money you invest in the development of a professional resumé should be equivalent to its potential impact on your life,” Hammond aptly closed.
