The Road Ahead: Recruiter Joel Koblentz on the Lack of Qualified Candidates

The benchmarks for what makes for a qualified candidate is a moving target, now more than ever as companies are rethinking what they are looking for in candidates.

“Are there more executive jobs now than there are qualified candidates?” This was the first question ExecuNet’s Head of Learning, Tony Vlahos, asked Joel Koblentz, founder of The Koblentz Group executive search firm in a recent interview. Mr. Koblentz advises corporate boards on succession and recruitment of new board members, the recruitment of CEOs and executive leadership. His typical clients are boards of directors, chief executives or controlling shareholders. His firm is a member of ExecuNet’s exclusive ExecuNetSelect recruiting partners group which routinely shares thought leadership and industry insights on the world of executive job search with the ExecuNet community.

This is part one of an ExecuNetSelect series reserved for those in the ExecuNet community who have activated VIP Access.
