Strategic leaders always have some great accomplishments to share on their resume. But too often, Angee has seen leader-level resumes that focus on the tactical implementation, rather than the strategic leadership that shaped communications work.

In the profile or summary section at the top, think about the difference between these two examples:

Twenty years experience in media relations, executive and internal communications with major corporations and public relations agencies.

VERSUS

Communications executive adept at transforming the communications function into a high-performing, outcomes-oriented driver of corporate or institutional strategy through excellent internal, external and executive communications strategies and implementation.

When you can demonstrate you are a business leader with a strong communications toolkit to help solve business challenges and communicate business goals, you will be telling the right story for those leadership level positions.
