“I called to make sure my résumé got to the right person. One of the gregarious part-time workers answered the phone. I learned a lot about the organization and ended-up speaking with the executive director within 24 hours. Sometimes luck, chance and ‘need’ come together.”
— 42-year-old Director of Marketing and Fundraising, Nonprofit

“I attended several ExecuNet-sponsored conferences (interviewing strategies, networking, negotiating), which helped hone my techniques in a timely manner. Getting my résumé professionally rewritten was by far the best thing I did this time around. It generated (and is still generating) interest and had a much higher ‘conversion rate’ than any other version of my résumé since I entered management.”
— 44-year-old Vice President, Software Development, Educational Software

“Clearly define the position, functional area and industry you wish to target for your search and work with a professional to update your résumé for that type of position.”
