Careers today are in fluid motion. Modern professionals change jobs an average of 12 times in their career. Senior executives often spend three to five years in a post. If you do some quick math, you’ll see that you spend as much of your career seeking out your next job as you do crushing it in the one you have.

So, here you are. Ready for your next big thing right now, with little to no idea how to embark upon your executive-level job search. And why shouldn’t you be at a loss?

If you have more than a decade of experience, chances are good you didn’t have to apply for most of your promotions. You were tapped on the shoulder — and the rest fell into place. But there’s been a palpable change.

Namely, LinkedIn, Glassdoor and other job search platforms have provided executive search professionals with direct access to superbly qualified leadership talent. This leads to increased levels of competition amongst candidates, which you’ve probably felt yourself.
