Here are 5 more of the 15 executive job search tips to help you with your executive job search and landing that next executive job more quickly.
6. Make sure your business portfolio is complete and up to date.
I always suggest taking your professional portfolio to the first executive job search interview in case it is requested. However, it is more traditional to present your portfolio on the second or third executive job search interview. Then it’s expected that it will be shared and time is allotted for the presentation of it during the interviewing process.
7. Apply for executive jobs on the internet that interest you and that are fairly realistic in their qualifications relative to your professional executive job search background.
Save copies of which executive jobs you have submitted a executive job search resume to online. Document which organizations you have applied to as well as appropriate contact information for follow-up on your Excel spreadsheet.
My suggestion is to respond to executive job postings about two to three days after the initial executive job posting. At this point, H.R. and the executive recruiters will still be interviewing for the position and your resume will get noticed more. Understand that most postings, particularly in this tight labor market, will easily receive about 350 executive resume responses.
8. Create a list for executive recruiters who specialize in your area of executive expertise.
Create an Excel spreadsheet that contains recruiters’ contact information. See “myResumeAgent” on the www.TheJobSearchExperts.com website (www.thejobsearchexperts.com/my-resume-agent/). This tool, which comes from Kennedy Publishers of the Directory of Executive Recruiters, will assist you in emailing your executive resume to executive recruiters. This tool has six job function areas and six industries to pick from.
9. Send your executive job search resume to executive recruiters as an email attachment.
That way they are able to scan the executive resume into their database.
10. Approximately seven days after your initial executive job search submission, start following up by phone with both the executive recruiters and the company contacts regarding the executive job search resumes you mailed.
