Where does Linkedin fit in the senior executive’s online presence? Is it your Resume? your network? Your branding tool? It can be these things and more. How you position your profile depends on a variety of factors, is your search low profile? Confidential, One thing is certain, your profile is not a stand alone tool, it needs support, it is not a resume.

Update your profile at least once per year or more often if appropriate.:

Header
Include your job title and a short high level overview of your experience. It should talk to your target audience.

Use Your Real Name

Photograph
Upload a recent business quality headshot photo. Strongly consider using a professional studio photographer. Profiles without photos are usually ignored by recruiters and hiring managers.

Summary
Show your value, dollarize, use numbers, hiring managers and recruiters zero in on this section; it should be keyword rich but informative and to the point. Ideally your summary should be 3-5 short paragraphs, preferably with bullets. Write in the 1st person.

Experience
Include companies you worked for, when and in what capacity. Tell results achieved. Show current skills not dated skills.

Education
List the educational institutions you attended even if you did not graduate. Be clear about degrees earned. Be careful with dates, it is not necessary to indicate when you received degrees, that can indicate your age in some instances.

Interests, Volunteer Experiences or Languages
Showcase uniques experiences that set you apart from the crowd.

Personalize Your Linkedin URL
It makes you look more professional, more memorable.

Become an Author
Write, publish your work on Linkedin, share your unique perspective of recent industry developments.

How to connect with me on Linkedin

Do business with me, I like connecting with people I know.

Get referred by someone I know and trust.

Why Should I Hire You?
Bill Mitchell

748Media.com prepares C-Suite Executives
for their next career opportunity.


"Why Should I Hire You" is a common interview question it is usually asked during a fact to face interview, after a hiring manager has short-listed you. He / she has an interest and now wants to dig below the surface to see how good of a fit you are and if they like you.

This is a question you need to NAIL as It gives you the opportunity to control your narrative by mapping your accomplishments, strengths, motivations and personality to the expectations of the interviewer.

Remember to customize your delivery and show how the interviewer or his / her organization will benefit from you coming on board.

Tell your story in a way that the interviewer can visualize you as the best fit.

First, take a moment to mentally review any job requirements or specs you have knowledge of then quickly review your conversations to date.

Be certain your social profiles and written documents are consistent with the story you tell.

During the interview flush out concerns the interviewer may have

Do your homework, know the situation of the company, the industry, the environment.

Is this the hiring manager? How much influence does this person have in the organization? What is his/her background? What is the culture of the company? What are they really looking for? It the business a success or has it fallen on difficult times. Remember fortunes can change overnight.

A Hiring managers thinking is as follows::
Can I manage this person?
Can he/she perform the requirements of the job?
Will this person be excited about working here?
Will this hire make me look good?

Your main focus will be to show how you will contribute to the company. Don't just list your past accomplishments, summarize the near term challenges of the job, the business environment, tell a few specifics about what you will do to get the company on track.

JOB MARKET

The Hidden Market

Opportunities controlled by retained recruiters.

Situations where a company knows it must make a
change, there is a person occupying the position
but the company has not acted.

Companies want to build out the executive team,
create new positions.

The Visible Market

Linkedin and other job sites. Thousands of people
apply for the same job (some are qualified, many are not).
The focus is to sell your data.

Contingency Recruiters, multiple companies compete to fill the
same job order.

ABOUT

Facts:
There are fewer senior executive opportunities (Bankruptcies & Mergers).
There is an oversupply of qualified executives competing for openings.
