A blog is a website with regular entries of commentary on a particular subject.
To appear on the recruiters’ radar screen, consider publishing a blog focused on your area of expertise. An executive who blogs increases the odds of being found. A blog is a way to build credibility, demonstrate expertise in your field, and position yourself as a thought leader.
You can write about emerging trends, industry events, ongoing research or projects, new products and customer issues. You can also include white papers or articles you have written, your resume and bio, an audio presentation or podcast, a link to your website, webportfolio, LinkedIn profile and other social media profiles.

Executive Resume Distribution – Targeted Mailing Campaigns
Targeted direct mail can be a great vehicle to identify unadvertised opportunities. Well-planned, well-targeted, and well-executed campaigns do get results!
You can develop an electronic or physical mailing campaign based on any one of the following categories or a combination of all four:
- Retained Recruiters: executive search firms with an exclusive contract to fill a senior-level, C-suite, or board position.
- Contingency Recruiters: search firms and staffing firms specializing in the placement of professionals at all levels.
- High Growth Companies: An electronic mailing to rapidly growing and large US and Canadian companies.
- Venture Capital Firms: An electronic mailing to venture capital firms. Many of these firms have multiple investment interests and are actively involved in recruiting executive talent for their portfolio of companies. One contact can result in multiple interviews and introduce you to some of the fastest growing companies.
