A cutting-edge resume and job search guide for executives in the 75K and above salary range-featuring the patented Expansionist Theory(TM)

Written by a veteran career advisor, this one-of-a-kind resource is packed with essential tips, tools, and advice for executives beginning a job search. This totally revised and expanded edition of the original bestseller is a complete job search guide that will help you launch a search with the same competitive edge held by clients of Montag Associates-who enjoy a placement success rate that far surpasses the outplacement industry norm. As shown through real-life case histories, clients and readers who combined the power resumes developed in Part I with the market-tested search theories in Part II have repeatedly outmarketed, outsmarted, and outdistanced the competition.

Featuring over 60 real-life skills and achievement-oriented resumes-all with accompanying cover letters-this Second Edition contains invaluable pointers on defining and packaging marketable skills and achievements, a question-and-answer section, and new chapters and appendices covering such vital topics as launching the job search, the executive interview, the top ten rules of the job market, and an executive guide to the Internet. There's a provocative new chapter documenting the impact of predatory greed on a stressed-out workforce-who can wrest control of their careers by executing a multistep, high-volume job search process that distinguishes the Expansionist Theory. While the competition dawdles, clients and readers get results. So will you.

Thorough and accessible, Best Resumes for $75,000+ Executive Jobs, Second Edition is a must-have for any executive looking for a competitive edge in the twenty-first century job market.
