The Executive CMO Resume that Landed 15 Potential Job Interviews in 2 Weeks

The majority of our executive resume clients share that they are able to end their job searches soon after we create their executive resumes. Why? Well, there are three rules we always apply that benefit every one of our CXO clients:

  • The second rule is that we create visually stimulating and well-organized executive resumes that are easy to digest and provide fundamental context (scale, scope, and alignment) at the cursory glance.
  • And third, we frontload and highlight the metric-driven results you achieve vs. what you do (a weaker position). This clearly establishes your leadership in the minds of your reader.

We then added some rocket fuel to her existing search strategies by conducting an executive recruiter distribution for her, while introducing her to executive recruiters in her area of expertise.

I confess — marketing executives are our TOUGHEST clients because after all — we both do the same things! This makes me especially proud and pleased for this outstanding Fortune 500 executive. This serves as a good benchmark for the kinds of results that can be fluidly achieved for C-Level executives if they have these following things in place: a clear focus of direction, expertly written and designed marketing collateral, and 2 or 3 C-level job search strategies. If you want to explore these strategies, I outlined a few of them here.

Growing Markets and Industry Segments

Global Waste Management Market Predicted to Grow:

I like this…

Europe and North America are expected to witness high demand for global waste treatment disposal services mainly owing to strict environmental and government norms relevant to the proper management and disposal of waste. Furthermore, developing economies in Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World are anticipated to experience high growth due to the continual growth of countries such as India, Russia, Brazil, and China, and the rapid pace of industrialization in these countries.

Major players dominating the global waste treatment disposal market include EnviroSolutions Incorporated, Waste Connections Incorporated, Allied Waste Industries, Clean Harbors Incorporated, and Environmental Quality Company. Other key players influencing the global market are Casella Waste Systems Incorporated, Tyco International Limited, Waste Management Incorporated, and Waste Industries USA Incorporated.
