Resume Needs to Be Laser-Focused


“Executives must be very, laser-focused on not only the target company and type of role or position they wish to pursue, but also their own quite specific areas of value they are pitching,” says Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter, owner of Missouri-based Career Trend, in a report by ExecuNet, Overcoming Today’s Toughest Résumé Challenges, by Marji McClure. “Then, they must further whittle down their value proposition statements to fit squarely upon the pain points of target companies. Many executives have such depth and breadth of value that they cannot see the forest for the trees, and therefore overwhelm the reader with information, much of which is not relevant.” ExecuNetRezRpt.jpg
