Key Achievements Plus Transferable Skills = Successful Executive Job Search

As a candidate looking for a new executive role, it’s incredibly important for you to be able to articulate your key achievements and transferable skills.

Having worked in the recruiting industry for many years and having interviewed and coached thousands of candidates and senior executives through their job search, this is something I’ve seen people do very well. But for whatever reason, I don’t think Australians are natural self-promoters.

I can’t speak about candidates in the American or English markets, but certainly in Australia, people don't want to blow their own trumpet.

Nevertheless, being able to clearly highlight your key achievements and transferable skills is of paramount importance when taking yourself to the job market. If you don't do that, the likelihood is you're not going to get the job that you want. I discuss this in detail on this Arete Executive Podcast episode and below.

In this episode: 

  • Sell the sizzle, not the steak

  • The recruitment process - get more bang for your buck

  • The four quadrants of the job market

  • Frame your CV with your STAR achievements

In a recruitment process, as a candidate, it is your one opportunity to blow your own trumpet. In fact, it's absolutely essential for you to do that. - Richard Triggs #HR #Recruitment #Careers
