To be successful as an executive, interpersonal skills are vital – It is also important to have a "can do" attitude, to be able to lead and plan strategically and to know how to make things happen. Successful executives possess a strong will to win, and they hate to lose.

Perhaps the most important qualities for a successful executive are passion and self-belief and the ability to inspire these same qualities in others. A clear understanding of your company’s long-term goals is also vital.

Turn your job descriptions into impressive achievements:

Professional Experience & Significant Achievements

It is very important that the Professional Experience section of your Executive CV shows a track record of achievement. Under each employer / position of your executive CV, include a brief paragraph that highlights your responsibilities (such as experience, sector, responsibilities, etc.). Then provide a bulleted list of your main achievements, and make sure they are meaningful to the potential employer reading your CV. If possible, include specific facts and figures. This will draw attention to your application.
