Build a Compelling Online Presence

In an executive job search, a great online presence is a necessity and it could be your prospective employer’s first impression. Before you start a serious executive career search, you need to make sure anything a potential employer reads about you on the Internet is consistent with any communication you provide to the potential employer directly. A professionally built Internet footprint expands your attractiveness to employers and takes advantage of the latest in technological business trends. This is something that is unique to Career Resume Consulting and will set you apart from everyone else in the executive job search field.
