Straight Talk on Executive Self Marketing
Executive employment search success depends upon many factors in addition to possessing a powerful set of self marketing tools (your executive resume, cover letter, etc.). This quote from the November 2003 edition of the Occupational Outlook Quarterly says it well:
“Regrettably, some of today’s less informed job seekers believe that the Internet has transformed the job search into a nearly effortless process. They hastily update their resumes and post them on several online databases. These jobseekers then sit back and wait for an employer to call. Most of them wait a long, long time–often in vain. Even in the age of the Internet, a job search still requires hard work. Having a plan, using multiple search methods, and asking for help all increase the chances of success.”
