A Favor to Ask

A small request to help make our jobs more meaningful, and to make us even more motivated.

Very sorry to bother you to request a favor, but I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sending us a photo of yourself. 


You see, we have a hundred very dedicated employees here at Ladders, Inc. who work tirelessly, around the clock, to make this system work and help you find your next great role in life more quickly. It's people like those in the photo below.

And the thing about working at an internet company is, we don't get to see our customers every day. And we'd like to! It means an awful lot to our people to see your faces and read your stories - it makes our job that much more meaningful and our sense of urgency, well... that much more urgent.

Dedicated to your success!

Transforming Your Resume Into an Interview Magnet

Your executive resume should tell the reader who you are, what value you bring, and where/how you have been successful.

By Abby Locke

If your job search campaign keeps netting you zero responses and you have been faithfully trying all avenues, you might consider re-thinking your resume strategy.

Your executive resume must be a strategic marketing document, not a career obituary or a string of job descriptions. After all, the only way you can attract attention is to be unique and differentiate yourself from the competition. Imagine for a second that you were reviewing tons of resumes that all looked and sounded the same. How would you determine the best candidate?

To present yourself as the best candidate and the right solution for companies, your executive resume should tell the reader who you are, what value you bring, and where/how you have been successful. Old, traditional resumes told employers about the past; today’s executive resume must indicate how you can make a difference in the future.
