Newark, Delaware (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
The Team at NOW (http://www.elite-ceo.com) keeps their fingers on the pulse of emerging trends in executive job markets and periodically releases reports on their findings. This new report focuses on how companies evaluate candidates for top management positions and how job seekers can market themselves more effectively.
“Listing general experience on generic resumes is not enough to get past HR screeners, let alone get you an interview in the current market,” NOW’s CEO explains. “Job seekers must really market themselves today and show how they could add value to a prospective employer.”
Another NOW staff member finds that there are many executives who fail to show their unique talents and exceptional achievements in their resumes. “These accomplished executives go unnoticed in huge piles of unread resumes,” she remarked. “They don’t stand out from other applicants.”
“Additionally,” she continued, “Their resumes are drawing responses from companies that consider them overqualified for the jobs they are offering. This can plant some seeds of doubt in the mind of an executive and leave his or her confidence shaken.”
NOW’s CEO added: “I tell my clients to market themselves as they would a new product or service they were offering. Identify a need for someone like you, craft your resume to demonstrate your specific talents and skills in terms of that need, and then sell yourself hard to potential employers.”
He recommends that job seekers create a personal brand and sell it to the top executives in the areas they wish to penetrate, which will give them a huge advantage over people sending the same resume to every company that might be hiring.
This report identifies the major hurdles job seekers encounter in the current job market and explains in detail how top executives can clear them and find success.
