Strong competition still exists worldwide for top executives, and they need to bring not only relevant skills, but also learning agility and thought leadership.
BlueSteps, the executive career management service by AESC, released their 2017 Executive Career Outlook Report offering insights on global executive-level career trends. The new report collects feedback from management-level professionals, from Director-level through C-suite, on their outlook for executive job opportunities across industries, functions and geographies in the year ahead.
Based on predictions by 1,219 senior management professionals worldwide, the mood among global management professionals is more optimistic about the global executive job market in 2017 compared to the same time last year. Executives worldwide understand there is fierce competition for top executive-level jobs, and today’s successful candidates for the C-suite must bring much more than relevant skills, but also learning agility and demonstrated thought leadership in their industries.
