Senior Level Job Transitioning to Rise

June 17, 2013 – A BlueSteps Executive Mobility Report shows that 76 percent of senior executives worldwide are willing to change jobs immediately for the right new opportunity, with 49 percent actively seeking a new position. Executives working in the technology sector reported the greatest likelihood of making a job change, with 55 percent of tech executives reporting it very likely they would consider a new opportunity immediately. Sales and marketing executives reported the least likelihood of making a job move right now, with just 44 percent reporting it very likely they would consider making a move. While transitioning from one industry to another at the executive level is notably challenging, that is not stopping more than one-third of executives who report they expect to be in a different industry than they are in currently over the next three years. Peter Felix, president of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC), said that rapid changes in technology and big data are impacting every sector. “Shifting demographics and the focus on digital transformation will open up new opportunities for executives to make more moves across industries.”
