Things are Different When Looking for a Job at the Executive Level

It’s gold medal or bust in the job search world. Getting onto the podium simply isn’t good enough. But that’s what’s going to happen if you’re an executive who is approaching your job search in a non-executive manner.

Need help telling your story? ExecuNet’s Career Strategists can make the difference in all aspects of your job search… and beyond. Get the help you need and the job you deserve.

After years of talking to companies in her role as a recruiter and now for the last several years as a career strategist with ExecuNet talking with her clients after interviews, Saundra Botts has identified how “The Job Opportunity Bell Curve” moves. For many years at mid-career finding a job can be rather easy, but when you are hitting your stride and make it to the executive level, things change at that point. There’s a lot of opportunity for what Saundra calls “the worker bees” but when it comes to the executive positions the supply and demand is not in your favor, no matter how great you were at doing the actual work.

Listen to Saundra in this excerpt from a VIP Access-only session of ExecuNet Master Class in which she talks about how different the approach must be for job seekers in the 3%, the executive level, compared to what they were used to when they were part of the general job seeker pool.
