I’ve worked full-time as a executive resume/CV writer since 1981. I can’t even begin to calculate how many resumes/CVs I’ve written, but it’s in the thousands!

After 30 years, I know things about resume/CV writing that most job seekers don’t - I’m sure you can say the same about your profession.

2014 China Perceptions Report CoverA recent survey of global executives conducted by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) found 85% of senior executives view China as providing positive opportunities for career growth.

According to Peter Felix, AESC & BlueSteps President, "While CEOs are focused on the key issues of attracting and retaining talent to their organizations, they are themselves concerned about their own career progression and the next opportunity. This is an inevitable reflection of the modern business world and a fast changing, competitive landscape.

The AESC’s BlueSteps survey of 508 senior executives worldwide finds more executives are feeling optimistic about the year ahead versus their outlook last year.

Like many professions, the executive recruiting industry has developed its own specializations and distinctions. The differences between retained executive search and other types of recruitment can seem confusing and the differences unimportant. However, to people in the profession and those dealing with it, the differences are crucial.
