Our goals for you are to:
Networking is key.
100% of directors and above look on job boards because it’s an easy source of information on what company is hiring for which positions, which seems like a natural and brilliant idea. The fact of the matter is that while 100% of people try that, less than 10% are able to get a job from that method – meaning 90% land a job some other way, which (no big surprise) is networking their way into the job. Many of the jobs you’re going to find yourself and others going through this program ending up in are not posted to start with. The posting piece comes after the fact, from a compliance perspective, it’s not all that open once that posting is made.
Jobs occur at the director and above level from conversations with others who are in their companies with certain kinds of challenges, but the people on their team may not have all the skills, or specific experience, or passion to deliver what is needed. The things that need to get done for the company to make revenue, are not happening.
