Year after year, the job market seemingly becomes more and more competitive. Seasoned executives are struggling more than ever to stand out amongst their colleagues. How can they battle this? They have years of experience and proven track records of success, but then again so does everyone else. Those looking into career movement should consider their stance as a competitor and how to level up in their industry.

A competitor's foundation is built from their confidence in themself and in their skillset. A candidate should come to the table knowing and understanding their strengths. Presenting these strengths with unwavering confidence shows a potential employer your drive without explicitly stating “I am a hardworking individual”. A secure colleague is someone who will undoubtedly enhance company culture and success. Without believing in yourself, how is anyone else supposed to?

Alongside confidence, a candidate should be self-aware of the value they can provide a team. A realistic understanding of ability will provide the candidate with the opportunity to leverage their skill set throughout an interview process. Value is something that is derived from a candidate’s capacity to perform at their best. An employer will look for these traits when looking for someone who will take their company to the next level. What translates as excellence in one industry may not carry over to others.

There is no denying that the presence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming exponentially prominent in the workplace. Does this pose another obstacle for executive professionals? Sort of. AI has done an incredible job of increasing workplace efficiency but it has not yet replaced the human personality entirely. On an executive level, there is no better alternative than a true personality. Companies typically look for a human to lead their employees, not a robot. Stop trying to eliminate the touch of personality still left in large corporations. For high level positions, employers are looking for a leader that will strengthen their workplace environment, not automate it.

The process of moving within an advanced career is exhausting and time consuming. The interview processes are often long and complex for good reason. A company is looking to hire in the future. The important thing for any candidate is to remember to be patient. The hiring team takes great care in reviewing individuals for the role and takes the same care with the interview process. A candidate that's seen as hasty is often seen as no longer a fit.

The overall takeaway for an individual to become the perfect executive recruitment candidate is to trust their experience and personality when finding their perfect fit.
