Are you looking to combine your STEM foundation with your leadership capabilities?
As a current or aspiring senior executive, your resume must emphasize your leadership capabilities and ability to stay the course, cope with challenging times, and propel people to achieve value-building goals.
You also understand the importance of investing in yourself, building strong relationships across all levels, and surrounding yourself with smarter and more experienced people as a tool for success.
For senior executives in various STEM leadership roles with 10+ years of experience targeting an annual salary between $100K to $200K. This includes: VPs, SVPs, EVPs, Directors/Senior Directors, Department Heads, GMs, and other high-level leaders in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or STEM-focused roles.
The rise of the Internet and automated hiring processes, combined with increased competition, means it’s no longer enough to dust off your resume, add a few bullet points, make a few calls, and post to a few online job boards here and there.
For those looking to make the executive leap for the first time, you have the added complexity of showing that you can deliver measurable results and that your leadership style is a good fit for the organization.
Executive resumes that get results are brand driven, focused, show evidence, provide context, and are designed to emphasize and reinforce your value and credibility. You can expect that your resume will be read by high-level recruiters, CEOs, COOs, CFOs, or Board Members who will want to know the following:
Will this VP of Technology solve our enterprise resource planning problems?
Will this Director of Finance be able to raise money in a tough economic climate?
Will this General Manager turn around a struggling division?

Cover Letter – $350 A well-written cover letter showcasing how your qualifications and career successes align with the target position is essential in determining if your impressive resume leaps to the top of the “yes” pile or lands in the rejection stack. The importance of a powerful cover letter cannot be overstated in highlighting what sets you apart from other candidates. Check out Scientech’s approach to writing STEM cover letters.
Thank You Letter – $200 A post-interview thank you letter is a necessary (and often overlooked) tool for any job seeker that can influence hiring decision-makers and increase your chances of subsequent interviews (or a job offer) while validating your candidacy, building rapport, and reminding the interviewer of your ability to produce results.
Executive Career Biography – $450 An executive career biography is a storytelling tool that reinforces your brand and breathes new life into your professional story. Your bio will showcase your leadership and management acumen through softer skills and “good fit” attributes that link to your value proposition.
Value Proposition Letter – $250 A Value Proposition Letter is a brief and persuasive account of what you accomplish, not what you do. Typically focused on CEOs, Directors, Business Owners, and other top decision-makers, this short, impactful letter has more power to grab and hold a reader’s attention by establishing your achievements through specific metrics and facts to achieve instant credibility.
Reference Sheet – $175 A reference sheet provides a list of people who can verify and positively elaborate on your professional achievements and contributions to a potential employer. This document can include testimonials from previous managers or colleagues who can offer third-party validation for your candidacy.
