Warwick, RI (PressExposure) March 10, 2009 -- Forbes.com - According to John Seraichyk CEO Browning Associates, A "C" level search engagement requires steadfast expertise, industry comprehension and a firm that truly recognizes what makes high level transition happen."
We have worked with thousands of executives who have contracted our services for a myriad of career search/crisis related scenarios. Whether employed or unemployed, the challenges and obstacles for a high level executive seeking a new position is countless say Seraichyk.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, less than 3% of the workforce population earns in excess of 175k annually. Furthermore, the report reveals that less than 20% of all professional and executive jobs offering an annual compensation of 100k + are advertised. The Bureau's report clearly articulates that if you are a senior executive, you are a minority and available career positions are extremely difficult to attain.
Of course, any worthwhile venture is never an easy one. Landing a new position at the senior 250k+ level requires a steadfast action plan. You need to be highly aggressive while maintaining confidentiality of your employment information. Imagine trying to market yourself to the masses while simultaneously having to make certain that nobody finds out! It's a bit of an oxymoron says Seraichyk. But, for an employed executive, confidentiality is paramount.
You need to implement a strategic search plan that will enable you to market your credentials to the appropriate individuals who can make or recommend a hiring decision. We can't change the poor conditions of the job market says Seraichyk, but we certainly can change how we approach it!
