In my latest article on Forbes, I share the running themes of the top executive resume writers to help you in your vetting process.
I like this piece from Seeking Alpha on one of the fastest growing (yet less talked about) industries: self storage. Read more about it in their article, “Extra Space Storage, Inc.: Boring Business Delivering Exciting Returns.”
It’s time for the 2018 TORI Awards, the resume writing industry’s most prestigious resume writing competition. I am excited to be a top-tier judge for the second year in a row. Thank you Career Directors International!
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:
In the example below, we applied these three principals for this Chief Marketing Officer of Fortune 500 Companies. 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.
Recently this client wrote us to apprise us of her progress. In her email, she states she landed 15 solid recruiter conversations and interviews for potential opportunities. She added that she felt the branding and packaging were incredibly well-received.
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.
WOW this is so interesting! Harvard Business Review article on how Venture Capital firms treat female entrepreneurs VERY differently than men. The chart of the attribute description between women and men at the end of the article blew my mind.
President Trump has already started acting to benefit North American oil production. On Tuesday, he signed an executive order to advance the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Read the full article here.
Companies across the US that are growing, expanding and hiring in multiple industries:
Japanese machinery maker Nissei Plastic Industrial Co. Ltd. will invest $20 million to set up a U.S. manufacturing operation to build its injection molding presses in San Antonio.
Reshoring of plastics molding to the United States played a role in the decision, Nissei officials said.
Nissei officials said construction is beginning this month and should be completed in November at the factory in Brooks City-Base, south of downtown San Antonio. Production is expected to start in February 2018, Nissei said.
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.
Guess what top global companies have (and which ones lack) the most empathetic cultures and retain the best talent?
This list surprised me!
How was the research compiled? I find the combination of analyzing tweets, Glassdoor and reported scandals quite fascinating:
…We break down empathy into categories: ethics, leadership, company culture, brand perception, and public messaging through social media. Our publicly available metrics including CEO approval ratings from staff, ratio of women on boards, and number of accounting infractions and scandals. This year we added a carbon metric. The financial information came from S&P Capital IQ, and the employee information from Glassdoor. We analyzed 2 million tweets from between September 27 and October 16 this year. An additional source of qualitative data expanded the survey: We used a panel selected from the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders. The leaders were asked to rate the companies’ morality.
