Target Company Selection

Once you have determined what you are selling and have packaged it properly, the next step is to figure out to whom you should sell it and how you get in front of the right decision makers. There are multiple channels leading into the job market. There are published and unpublished openings, network and recruiter openings, influential relationships, and event-driven opportunities. You must manage your exposure in each channel to maximize your search and secure meaningful interviews.

Target company selection is one of the most important processes in achieving a successful job search. Most executive job hunters "shotgun" the job market and some even use Internet and resume blasting services. Their search turns from weeks into months and eventually something comes along that they are forced into accepting. They find jobs not careers. Finding and selecting the right target companies is critical to a successful search and must follow a logical process not guesswork. We will guide you each step of the way.
