I don't think he wanted to know who writes resume for him. He is asking "long-term strategies for advancement." I believe many want to know since at this level lots depend on how management see you. Is atmosphere "work and results being noticed and rewarded" or "brown nosing is appreciated."
Whoever knows real workable "long-term strategies for advancement" that is based on a personal achievement, according to OPM/merit promotion laws/regulations without any brown nosing please share.
