Resume - To be or not to be?

Executive Job Corner - This Month’s Topic
Resume-To be or not to be?

There is a great deal of controversy surrounding executive resumes. Here is the reality.
Believe it or not, we do not use a resume as a method of introduction for most of our senior level clients. A resume screams: “Hire me”! Or worse, it may cause an unwanted breach of your confidentiality! Not so fast. Less is more at your level. You need to step back, identify the proper hiring authorities and then craft an alternative strategic method of formal introduction.

Utilizing our network of growth companies, key decision makers and client alumni, we will introduce you in such a way that the potential employer is given just enough information to inspire interest.

While your competition is bombarding the HR department with droves of paper and electronic boilerplate resume submissions, we will evenly promote your credentials to each and every one involved in the hiring process. Many times, your initial credential submission will come complete with a referral from our client network. This is when our human exchange contacts become most valuable to you.

Eventually, the hiring authorities will request your resume. When this occurs, we will schedule a time for you to bring one directly to the company or schedule a phone interview for an initial review.

At Browning Associates we all agree that the resume is to be. However, proper usage as illustrated above is essential. More about the resume

In order to get the job. You will will always need your resume. You can't just show yourself and tell the hiring manager that you are there to be hired without any paper that you are qualified for whatever you're applying for. For formality's sake, every company require every applicant to provide a resume. That way they can assess the candidate. That's part, a resume that screams hire me is a part. In the first place, you can't get hired without a resume. Getting an extreme resume makeover will always get you to get the ball rolling for your job search.
