The Executive Leap

Breakthrough Strategies to Land Your Next Top Job

By: Mike Sudermann

You’re looking for that next big career change. Ideally―a leap into a much better or bigger role than the one you have now. However, as an established mid-to-senior-level executive, that change likely is not very fluid. Maybe you have already spent a few grand having your resume crafted and perfected and now you feel ready, indestructible, for any positions you may interview for. This is not enough; you need to instill 100 percent without-a-doubt confidence in a hiring manager that you are the only candidate right for the job. In The Executive Leap, Mike Sudermann is providing his insider view of the executive search, having worked with thousands of professionals in his ten-plus years of experience.

Honing in on what hiring managers look for on resumes, the importance of social media and LinkedIn profiles, and then preparing executives to strategically position themselves to land their next top job is Mike’s specialty―and one he’s sharing within these pages by revealing how to do the following:

• Resume killers and maximizing your resume review. Hiring managers glance at resumes for about six seconds. Get sixty seconds.
• Land your next job without settling for the national average increase in compensation.
• Position yourself as the number-one must-hire―land faster and with a great role.
