Danielle’s experience in human resources management within financial services and insurance companies.

Danielle was ready for a new challenge.

After working with the same company for 5 years, Danielle was frustrated by the lack of advancement opportunities. She knew that to advance to a C-suite role, she would need to explore opportunities at other companies.

Danielle joined BlueSteps

Danielle learned about new CHRO opportunities on BlueSteps.

Danielle checked BlueSteps daily for new CHRO searches on the US East Coast. For those that interested her, Danielle expressed her candidacy directly to the search firms handling the searches. In the meantime, Danielle used the other benefits of her BlueSteps membership to strengthen her personal brand and prepare her for the interview process.

Danielle used the BlueSteps Global Guide to Personal Branding for Executives to define her personal mission.

The BlueSteps career guides helped Danielle understand more deeply her own personal brand and how to weave her unique value proposition into her networking and career documents.

Danielle then submitted her executive resume for a complimentary resume review.

Danielle’s executive resume was sent to an expert BlueSteps Resume Writer, who specializes in personal branding for insurance industry executives. After the initial consultation, Danielle decided her LinkedIn profile wasn’t showing off her unique strengths and she purchased a LinkedIn profile rewrite with her expert advisor. Immediately, Danielle’s LinkedIn profile received more visits and she began to quickly expand her network further.

BlueSteps Podcasts allowed Danielle to pose career questions directly to executive career coaches.

Danielle took advantage of the Ask an Expert Podcast series, available exclusively to BlueSteps members. Her job search questions were featured in multiple podcast episodes and she got some helpful answers to help her overcome some job search roadblocks.

Danielle leveraged BlueSteps to connect with executive search consultants.

Danielle incorporated these tips and career management tools into her job search strategy, which eventually led to an introduction to a top insurance recruiter. This recruiter placed Danielle on the shortlist for a CHRO search for a well-known insurance brand headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

Danielle’s career transition was a success and she is enjoying her new organization.

Danielle effectively transitioned to a new CHRO role using her BlueSteps membership. Since she is always open to new opportunities in today’s highly competitive job market, Danielle keeps her BlueSteps profile up-to-date and regularly checks in to her BlueSteps account for new career insights and helpful advice.
