“With more than 30 years’ experience filling Vice President Corporate Communications, Investor Relations and related positions, I’ve interviewed, counseled and answered questions for thousands of outstanding and high potential professionals about their careers. This Blog is about answering the most frequently asked questions — or the most challenging ones where there is no perfect answer.
“On a weekly basis, I will post a question and a brief response. For additional comments, please follow the link. I hope my observations will spark a response and add to the conversation. Ultimately, I expect to assemble these topics into a book that includes my observations and reader comments. All blog submissions are treated as confidential and no names are released unless the author gives permission.
The topics we will discuss initially are: resumes, compensation, the interview and managing your search.
Here are links to the blog pages for the initial topics:
I look forward to your feedback.”
