The executive resume
Management consultants say an executive resume- one which should sell a candidate’s skills for a post chief executive officer (CEO) should not be packaged in the same manner as conventional ones.
The focus should go beyond one’s achievements. It should include your leadership qualities. These must be boldly demonstrated in the resume.
Elements in question in executive positions include being visionary and therefore able to chart out a way of doing things, having strong professional integrity, displaying charisma and presence, adopting flexible communication skills to enhance relations, enjoying emotional control to tackle challenges and exuding confidence.
Citing examples, your resume should bring out these values, in addition to the rest of your achievements. The key to selling yourself for an executive post is displaying who you are, both professionally and personally.
This will present you as a complete package, which any company would want to acquire.
