The Job Market Is Heating Up - Multiple Specific Opportunties Outlined Below
In my corner of the world, I am seeing an increase in companies hiring strategically. In some cases, they are moving to fill positions that had been frozen during the worst of the recession. In other cases, they are doing succession planning and building the next generation of leaders. And other companies are adding head count because of growth in market share A growing number of companies are specifically targeting military veterans as a priority. Here are a few specific opportunities I am working on.
CEO Position in Houston, TX - A services company is looking for a CEO with a track record of building market share for a company at least $50M in annual revenue.
Hedge Fund in the NYC area - multiple positions in every area of the firm - investment, operations, back-office, IT support. Very specific culture and high barriers to entry. They prefer Ivy league or service academy grads with stellar records of success. Candidates coming out of financial services or consulting do well, as do military veterans.
Consulting roles in NYC - A top NYC-based consultancy is targeting former military officers - both pre-MBA and post-MBA for three of their practice areas.
Atlanta Business Development Opportunity - A staff augmentation company in Atlanta needs someone to head up a business development team. The best candidate will have a solid record of revenue generation in solutions selling, and will be a military veteran.
Medical Device Opportunity in Northern California - Leading edge medical device company is looking for a superb candidate to take over and grow an existing territory. Best candidate will bring exceptionally strong conceptual skills and interpersonal skills for working collaboratively with physicians in OR/lab settings. Military veterans do well in this organization.
