Update your hashtag#Linkedin profile according to modern standards that instantly establish your credibility and promote your qualifications to move into a new career opportunity. Today, strangers are more likely to Google your name and anonymously visit your LI profile before contacting you directly for a hashtag#resume. (Formerly known as your piece de resistance, that beautifully formatted, creatively written story of your hashtag#career successes tailored perfectly to meet hiring authority’s expectations, gain the respect you deserve and win the job offer you want.) Alas, times have changed. Employers can anonymously access your background even faster without asking for a resume. All they need to do is search your name online and check out your LinkedIn profile. A first look can be a deal breaker or a door opener. Don’t risk making the best first impression. Have a strong, clear, compelling summary that says who you are as a person and describe relevant details supporting your future goals . hashtag#marketing hashtag#job hashtag#socialmedia hashtag#networ

Giving or taking free help comes at a price. It’s not an absolute choice, hashtag#career mentor or coach, gratis or investment. hashtag#Executive s benefit from different relationships that vary by timing/circumstances. One thing I know for sure: it’s challenging for a “friend” to deliver criticism or recommend a hardship, especially if their advice directly affects them/their relationships. Same rationale applies to family members reluctant to hurt your feelings, jeopardize your respect/trust, lose affection. http://bit.ly/2QgW5y4 Giving or taking free services comes at a price. hashtag#network hashtag#careerdevelopment hashtag#coaching hashtag#careercounseling hashtag#job

Adding to your network should be a continuous process, meeting new contacts, developing choice relationships through deepening shared experiences and volunteering help.You need the right contacts before you have to change roles. If you haven't networked purposefully (in @forbes http://bit.ly/2QbONvI ) it is never too late to start building a new #network that will deliver valuable leads - the most effective and efficient #jobsearch. method for #executives. Don't wait till you must find a new job. While your competition is talking to hiring authorities and gaining interest, don't waste any time online uploading #resumes.



People hire people they know or their friends know. You must be on the radar of the RIGHT CONNECTIONS so they think of you... which gets back to having the right contacts before you need a job and often before an employer has an open position. Your network is the entryway into the Hidden Job Market.#network #networking #executive #jobsearch #referral #contacts #connections #hiddenjobs #unadvertisedjobs #hiddenjobmarket #confidential #private #socialmedia #careers #hiringandpromotion #career #recruiting

#Executives do you doubt #reputation is a huge, not subtle, factor in consumer behavior& major force affecting a company’s success? Then knowing that Amazon paid it's employees to post positive reviews is proof. As reputation (public opinion votes with its wallet) continues to increasingly influence recruiting and hiring, you must guard your personal image. Seek positive reviews on LI and in Letters of recommendation, and among your references describing your ethics and talent from credible endorsers. Need a boost to get started, read about REPUTATION3.0 to stand apart from other candidates http://bit.ly/2KyFkf1

#Executive #Jobearch #GoldenRule 1)How can you differentiate yourself from the competition? 2)What's the best way to describe your expertise? Start with what you enjoy and how you can confidently always produce positive results. These represent your job search goal: naming the activities and responsibilities you want and the unique talent and skills you confidently apply. Simple enough if you know who you are and what employers need. Do your self-evaluation and market research. Where these two intersect is the campaign goal;candidate lands a new role they want and employer makes a hire they trust and appreciate. #job #career #research #networking #resume #marketingstrategy #careerdevelopment #executivesearch #senior Get help executing this strategy, visit JobWhiz.com

#Senior #Executives in the 70s and 80s it was tres chic to be called a "workaholic." Workaholics were admired and envied for their dedication to career success. Roll forward into the Millennial Age. #Reputation isn't awarded for ignoring #worklife balance. Are you till drinking out of the fire hose or have you been forcefully converted or voluntarily cutback? #nojudgment Has your choice affected your #jobsearch #societyandculture #millennials #career career advancement, personal relationships, etc.? Need to find out if you are a #Workaholic?

Senior #executive #job seekers unsolicited mass emails can backfire; they are less effective than a one-on-one communication. For starters, if you have a dialogue you can explore optional solutions instead of settling for a yes/no. The recipient is more likely to remember you and want to help. If you are seeking a new #career opportunity, don't waste time blasting/spamming your contacts file. You'll get more and better responses approaching select individuals with a customized communication. If the reason you chose the mass approach is because you don't know who to contact, then do your #research to identify the right individual. Will it be time consuming? Yes. Will it be worth it? Definitely! There is a bonus in store for you and your connections: satisfying the human need to interact and share ideas and feel like you are making #jobsearch progress and further sharpen your focus. So the next time you figure throwing it out and seeing what sticks, might be your lucky day, restrain yourself. Be respectful of other people's time. We'll all benefit from more genuine communication.

#senior #executive Do you really have star quality talent? Yes, if u have applied associative thinking to resolve a challenge . Describe how making connections between seemingly disparate ideas produced positive results. Cite examples in your LI profile summary demonstrating this unusual ability. This draws attention and starts conversations! http://bit.ly/2vBGBvN HT @JeffHyman hashtag#executivesearch hashtag#jobsearch hashtag#careerdevelopment hashtag#resume hashtag#executivetalentagent
