(for example, CEO, COO, CFO, CIO, CTO, CMO)
If you fall into this category, you typically have high-level, large-scope responsibilities that include leadership of strategic plans and initiatives to position the company or your part of it for increases in growth, profitability, market dominance, competitive advantage, and more. I help highlight the critical aspects of your experience that speak to this type and level of responsibility and how you have made it pay off for the company. Although we can include some of the tactical side of management, strategic leadership for the overall benefit of the company takes precedence.
You can contact me by whatever means is most relevant and works best for you—sending an email or scheduling a call is the method most often used and most effective. Our interactions from that point on depend on your individual situation, but my overall goal is to determine your career-related job search needs and prepare a customized project quote that can start us off effectively. Once we have a green light on your project, we can map out a plan from there.
In any case, I provide as much personalized attention as possible throughout our communications and our work together. Expectations at this level tend to be high, and I exert every reasonable effort to meet your expectations—and, as much as possible, exceed them.
I particularly aim to gain a clear understanding of what you’re looking for. When I’ve identified that, I work with you to customize your materials and presentation based on my understanding of what you have to offer and what the target position would require.
The benefits and outcomes you can expect from working with me include materials and guidance targeted to your situation that will help you navigate your job search and position yourself well to garner interviews. I serve as a discreet job search “partner” to help smooth the process and minimize roadblocks you might encounter. Although I can’t guarantee what responses you will receive, it often happens that clients hear back from multiple potential employers, unless they are targeting one specific job and company.
Special note: If you are not yet at this level but targeting it as your next career move, we can still work in much the same way as if you were already there. We do, however, need to lean more on emphasizing the value you already have to offer that proves your readiness for advancement. We should discuss this topic specifically when we have the preliminary phone consultation.
