Reinventing Your Career

The Senior-Level Career-Reinvention Checklist
from the Summer 2011 Public Relations Strategist

Monster.com provides these job-search tips for executive-level professionals:

  • Appearance. Outdated clothes or hair can make a negative impression on prospective employers. Look sharp and make sure you’re up-to-date.
  • Résumé. Experience is a plus. Don’t let your résumé date you — use it to show off your assets.
  • Interview. Get comfortable with the fact that someone younger may be inteviewing you. Maintain a confident, positive attitude and relate current, relevant experiences.
