Executive Job Search Tips

Getting the job you want is not that easy but the difficulty of the task mostly depends on the type of job you are looking for. While Entry-level job seekers have it quite easy, executive-level candidates will need more efforts to get their dream job. There are a lot of obstacles to overcome when looking for an executive position, but with a little effort and know-how you should have no trouble finding and getting the job that you want.

The first step will be finding available jobs. Executive level jobs can’t be found as easily as the jobs you can find employment listings. There are many ways to find executive job listings, including:

·    Specialized papers such as the Wall Street Journal
·    Executive recruiting services
·    Networking
·    Online executive job sites

The next step is to find the jobs that are right for you. Because executive jobs are very detailed, it is much easier to see if you have the right qualifications and experience. And if you do not find an exact listing that meets all of your qualifications, do not worry as you can still apply as long as you are qualified. For example, if you have minimal experience in an area that a  position asks for, as long as you have other related skills and abilities that show your capabilities, you should still be able to apply to the position.

Finally, make sure you convince the employer you are the righ candidate for the job. Indeed, papers like the Wall Street Journal generally get between 100 and 600 responses per ad, so your resume needs to stand out and prove that you are the most qualified person for the job. Also, employers and recruiters are pretty busy and, as a result, they may only spend a few seconds looking at each resume, so it is essential that you have a flawless and unique resume. An Executive resume should not be longer than two pages should catch the attention of the reader within the first half of the first page, otherwise chances are they will get tossed or put aside with the hundreds of others that didn’t make the cut.
