    In her role as an executive head-hunter, Kylie Hammond, who is also regarded as one of Australia’s top careers coaches, has placed thousands of suits in top-level jobs, so she is well placed to write a book called The Executive Candidate’s Survival Guide.

    Hammond, the founder and chief executive officer of Board Portfolio, a leading Sydney-based board search and advisory firm, has created this accessible step-by-step guide that should be essential reading for any executive candidate.

    “The market is quite challenging at the moment,” Hammond says. “It’s more competitive than ever for senior roles, so you need to approach things in a quite strategic way.”

    She says the advent of social-media tools, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, has forever changed the playing field for the executive candidate.

    “The reality is, when you’re an executive candidate, you need to be quite strategic and you need to plan significant career moves.”

    Hammond’s top three tips:

    “Firstly, always have a very good quality resume.

    Secondly, think through and plan your next career move and prepare properly. For senior executives, that means doing hard-core interview preparation.

    Finally, you need to work out how to tap into the unadvertised job market.
