Your Guides Through the “Zoo” and the “Goo”
“I went from a contact or two every couple of weeks to more than a dozen contacts/phone interviews with recruiters this past week.” Eric S. (Information Security Director, Denver)
In many parts of our lives, we’ve wisely built in protections to help weather the various storms we might face, but in our careers, we’ve often somewhat gone it alone, trusting our education and credentials mixed with experience to be enough.
And at times, it has seemed like it was enough. Jobs in the past haven’t been so hard to come by and promotions came easier.
All of us here at ITtechExec can relate. We too have advanced degrees, certification letters a mile long, and more experience than we know what to do with (from corporate lackey to corporate leader and everything in between). And we’ve each hoped that alone was all the “planning” we had to do!
Yet we too have found ourselves at some point out in a competitive job market left to our own devices, wondering why our past accomplishments, education, and other credentials now no longer seem like enough.
That’s why we do what we do here at ITtechExec and that’s why we do it the way we do it: Because we’ve been there.
Whether you’re an optimist or pessimist, or something in between, we all could use trusted advisers to help us manage the things we’ve worked so hard to build, keeping us well positioned and up to date, making sure we aren’t stuck, alone, trying the same old things hoping for a different result.
The market may be uncertain, but you don’t have to be. That’s where we come in.
