Malin connected with a BlueSteps advisor.

It had been almost a decade since Malin’s last job search, so she decided to connect with a BlueSteps advisor for advice on updating her career documents, with a specific goal of landing a cross border opportunity. Malin’s advisor recommended a resume refresh, new executive bio and a rewritten LinkedIn profile to showcase her achievements and international experience.

Manish achieved his goal.

Manish’s BlueSteps membership helped him advance to the C-suite with a new position as CFO at a major facilities management company based in Dubai. Manish leveraged a contact he made at a BlueSteps Executive MBA networking event to learn about opportunities in his home city. While Manish doesn’t plan on searching for new opportunities anytime soon, he knows that his Lifetime BlueSteps Membership is a service that will provide value throughout his career.
