Executive Skills Most Sought-After by Employers

Here are the characteristics and abilities most sought-after by today’s employers, as found by survey and reported in ExecuNet’s annual Executive Job Market Intelligence Report:

  • The ability to lead high-performance teams
  • Industry-specific experience
  • Strategy and execution leadership
  • Functional/technical experience
  • Problem solving
  • Change agent
  • Cross-functional expertise

Does your resume demonstrate all of the above? If you are looking to change industries, you may not be able to meet the “industry-specific experience” criterion, but hopefully all of the others are well within your capabilities. Read through your executive resume carefully and verify that all of them are demonstrated strongly throughout your document.
