Welcome to the Executive Career Upgrades Podcast with your hosts, Tim and Kristina Madden. Here we share tactics and strategies each week to help business professionals targeting multiple 6 Figures navigate this current job market so that they can land the job they deserve! Whether you need help with your branding, getting on more interviews, converting interviews to offers, maximizing your compensation, or mindset clarity, this podcast is for you! Tim Madden is the Founder of Executive Career Upgrades and is a Veteran Headhunter who has led teams that have sold and fulfilled on over 50 million dollars in Staffing and Recruitment services since 2013 and has helped place over 6,000 business professionals. Prior to that, he was one of the top recruiters for the military and went on to become an Army Field Artillery Officer. He has seen tens of thousands of resumes (probably more) and interacted with CEOs and Senior Executives at some of the top companies in the world. And, he is a frequent contributor to Entrepreneur.com, Fast Company, Forbes, & Newsweek and sits on the council of various organizations.
Your co-host, Kristina Madden, co-founder and Chief People Officer of Executive Career Upgrades, is a Mindset Expert who has worked with top Executives to develop their mindset, helping them to reframe their state of mind to achieve success and reach their true potential. Kristina has consulted for some of the fastest-growing companies on the Inc. 500 list.
Resumes almost never clearly describe someone’s own “true skills and achievements,” most of the time, hiring managers want to focus on specific bullet points in a job description. This isn’t something that is new; this is a challenge candidates and hiring managers have had going on for years. Also, most people are confused in their career. They don’t know what to target, they don’t know how to build a clear impactful message, and most of the time settle for mediocrity which leads to poor job performance, low pay, and unfulfillment. Not only do Tim and Kristina Madden attract high-quality candidates for companies, but they are also passionate about helping high achievers land that next multiple 6-figure job, which most of the time is less about tactics and more about mindset and confidence.
