Executives, stop thinking of yourself as just a job seeker who is seeking a salary and start positioning yourself as a worthwhile investment.

An investment with high returns.

Write your resume to be a marketing motivator.

Instead of just listing job duties in your resume, sell value. Your value.

Demonstrate the returns.


Emphasize how you will help a business do things faster, better, or smarter:

πŸ’² Reduced financial statement preparation from 20 days to 7 days.

πŸ’² Lowered customer complaints 40% by launching formal feedback system.
