Executive CV Writing Tips: CEO / Executive Resume Writing Advice

Welcome to Executive CV Tips. The executive resume forms the backbone of any job hunting strategy. Recruiters still see the resume as the single most important element of any executive job search, so it is crucial to stand out from the competition and offer something different. Therefore, it is important to define a clear ‘value proposition’. This is usually reflected in the CV, via LinkedIn (online presence), headhunter engagement and how executives perform at interview. Know matter which executive mentoring, career coaching or career management company someone chooses to partner with, everything is built around developing an individual ‘value proposition’ and the resume is an important part of creating a ‘baseline’ before adding other career management elements within an integrated executive career mentoring solution. To assist executives in developing their own ‘value proposition’ and using the CV to seek out job opportunities, we have included articles providing useful executive resume writing advice.

‘Executives need to dedicate time to defining own ‘value proposition’. This often starts with the CV to get a baseline. A well-targeted executive CV, a strong value proposition and a good ‘strategic fit’ for roles makes candidates stand out from the competition. The executive resume can also help improve focus, boost confidence and provide the platform for other job search activities, notably headhunter engagement, interview preparation and creating talking points at interview.’ – Executive Career Solutions
