You know that to find the perfect job, first, you have to know the roles in which you excel, make an impact, and receive great compensation. Next, you have to determine and articulate what is your unique value proposition — what makes you the best candidate for those roles? Last, but not least, is getting the interview and negotiating the offer.
These executive job search tips will help you make the networking, interviewing, and negotiating part of the process as easy and effective as possible.
