The first episode of the year is with a career coach and executive search consultant or recruiter Andrew MacAskill. Since I went through redundancy and career choices last year, I thought it would be great to kick off 2019 with some advice on career and job hunts.
Given it is January, some of the listeners might consider a change in career this year, and this might just give you the right pointers where to start. If you are not looking, this is still relevant, as we discuss how the job market has changed, and how executive careers are different to where they were in the past.
Is there still job security? Are we all consultants? I wrote about that in the past in a publication. Those are the questions we are trying to answer and how to attract the right position, incentivise CEOs for the long term game.
We speak about Principles of Success and about how entrepreneurs are motivated. Andrew points out that mindset is key for success and it is a journey, not a goal, re-iterating what we found out in last year’s podcast journey.
He has fantastic advice on reading material and great advice as a career coach overall. Leaders are readers, Andrew concludes.
Enjoy this episode!
