Senior Management Executives: You Still Need a CV

by | Jun 21, 2020 | General | 2 comments

I am sad to admit that some of the poorest fit CVs and LinkedIn profiles I have seen are at Executive and Senior Management level.

Many qualified Executive and Senior level candidates are passed on because their LinkedIn profiles and CVs are not positioned for such level roles.

Imagine my shock when I wanted to refer someone I knew for an MD position, but alas he didn’t even have a LinkedIn profile.

There is this wrong notion that CVs are only for job seekers and so many opportunities are lost that way.

These days, employers and recruiters take a peek at candidates via LinkedIn before reaching out.

LinkedIn allows your contacts share your profile as PDF thereby generating a CV for you. Many profiles not up to date put such candidates at a disadvantage.

Everyone needs a CV whatever your level.

A CV can be requested for at any time and for different reasons;, it could be a request from a business school, referral for a management role, a board position or a business opportunity.

When these opportunities arise, having a well written CV handy is a winning strategy.

Do note that the CV format used earlier on in your career is not usually appropriate at senior level.

If you are a busy Senior Executive and need help, do send me a message, I can help.
