On August 1st, The Execu|Search Group is celebrating a big birthday – 30! In honor of our upcoming anniversary, we will be sharing throwback memories every Thursday on Twitter and Facebook through July and August.
Last Thursday we brought you the template for our Irish Setter logo from the 90s; this week, you can see that picture transformed into the actual logo used for our very first newsletter, Execu|Notes!
Execu|Notes was a hard-copy newsletter mailed out to job seekers on a quarterly basis. Each issue included content that helped job seekers explore every facet of the employment-seeking process, with articles that covered subjects such as employment trends, interviewing tips, and strategies for evaluating a prospective employer.
These topics aren’t a far cry from what our e-newsletters cover today, but just like our current articles, the content in Execu|Notes was tailored to suit the times. For example, Issue 1 (Winter, 1996) gave job seekers a basic crash course in utilizing the internet—specifically, America Online (AOL) and Compu-Serve—as a new tool in their job search.
Today, we post extensively on our blog about a variety of job search-related topics, and publish monthly newsletters on general career strategies as well as trends in the Accounting/Finance, Financial Services, Healthcare, Information Technology, and Office Support practice areas.
