NOVATO, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - The two most important documents any executive needs to make a successful career move are a dynamite resume and a compelling executive bio. In the next Experts Connection™ ( teleseminar, "Powerful Resumes & Executive Bios: The Best Tips and Strategies," Ross Macpherson, an acknowledged expert in advanced career strategies, will help you understand the strategy behind executive resumes and bios, and provide practical writing tips.

For senior managers, an effective resume or bio can't be merely "good," they need to be show-stoppers to open the right doors. However, before you can determine what keywords to use or what to include in a resume or bio, you need to understand the strategy behind how to use them. Once you can see these documents the way a prospective employer sees them, you can apply advanced writing, formatting, and content techniques. The result has to clearly demonstrate your value to a potential employer, and make it clear you are someone the hiring manager must meet.

In this 90-minute Experts Connection teleseminar, Macpherson will share his expertise in best practices to create a strong resume and bio, including:

--  How bios and resumes differ in the eyes of a recruiter or hiring
    manager, and how to use them.
--  The top 5 things that you must have in an effective executive resume.
--  Simple content strategies that can make any resume stand out and
    articulate value.
--  How to create a compelling one-page executive bio.

    information you should not include.
