Expert advice

“What makes a resume different for C-suite level candidates is there’s a re-emphasis of leadership skills, impact, and driving results…As you get into higher leadership roles, it’s less of a conversation of ‘Do you have the technical skills and qualifications’ and more of a conversation about ‘do you have demonstrated leadership, can you drive outcomes, do you have a shared vision for where you would lead this team?’”
