I just hung up the phone after a call with a man named John. He’d recently activated Premium Access and just had his 60-minute conversation with one of our career strategists. For the first time in his 8-months and counting job search he feels confident, no longer alone, and armed with a plan.
Job search at the executive level is more challenging and simply different than at the lower levels. Repeatedly over the last 30+ years we’ve had executives come to us without an executive-level plan or resume and feeling alone and very concerned. A common story, as was the case for John, they end up getting some interviews but not quite acing it to the point that they get offers. It’s not obvious things that keep candidates from getting offers after interviews that seemed to go well.
It’s about how you project yourself during an interview – harder than people think! It’s about focusing on the value you’ll bring to the next employer – not what you’ve done in the past – and demonstrating your understanding of the hiring company’s pain points. As ExecuNet founder Dave Opton says, “Be the aspirin for their headache!”
Much of the time people aren’t pursuing the right opportunities; it sounds like John wasn’t.
If you’d like to discover the strategies for landing your ideal role – before it goes to someone else – I invite you to join us for what will be an exciting conversation; you will hear from two of the best in the field – ExecuNet Career Strategist Saundra Botts and Executive Recruiter and Recruiter Trainer Barb Bruno.
They will discuss why getting a job at the executive level is different from getting a job in the other 97% of the org chart, and how to win the one that’s right for you.
If you haven’t accomplished what you had hoped for in your job search by now, this is the one talk you won’t want to miss.
This online event is only available to executives who have activated premium access
, so please do that then register for the talk
I hope you’ll join us!
