CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, January 18, 2018 / -- Shields Meneley Partners, the worldwide leader in career transition services catering to C-Suite level executives, has teamed with Rob Wallace, a critically acclaimed news storyteller and producer, and his company Nxtact, to introduce video resumes to members of the C-Suite in career transition.

“The Shields Meneley team has been an expert in how C-Suite executives successfully transition to new roles for more than 20 years and we remain on the cutting edge of communications channels,” explains Gail Meneley, co–founder and principal from the firm. “We believe personal marketing web link including video is the next obvious evolution companies will leverage in identifying and qualifying senior level candidates.”

Nxtact’s personal marketing online profile is a professionally filmed and edited interview with senior level business leaders in which the subjects discuss key accomplishments and elements of their character that simply cannot be captured in a paper resume.

Wallace works on every aspect of the project.
