Senior Executive Seeking New Job Opportunities

May 24, 2011 – The BlueSteps 2011 Executive Mobility Report shows that 73 percent of employed senior executives are actively seeking new job opportunities this year, but the majority expects it to be a lateral move. This compares to last year, where 53 percent of executives expected to stay at their level for just one to two years before progressing upwards, 65 percent of executives are now saying they plan to stay at their current level for the next three to five years. Executives in EMEA and Asia Pacific report having more opportunities than they had five years ago while respondents in the Americas said they now have fewer. “Senior executives around the world are eager to make career moves after waiting out the unstable economy of the last few years,” said Peter Felix, president of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC). With the growth of multinationals in the emerging markets, executives in those regions have more opportunity than ever, and can therefore progress their careers faster.”
