How willing are employers to go beyond salary range for a position? That's what one ExecuNet member had to find out when he learned from a recruiter that he expected too much money for a role that met his qualifications and interest.
Recruiter Andy Borkin, President of Strategic Advancement, suggested the job seeker not worry about salary yet. "You need to concentrate on getting this company to believe you are the only person for this job, and you will do this by talking about your prior accomplishments and how they relate to the company's needs. If they feel you are the right person, there are many ways to get to the total compensation level you seek. It could be through base, bonus, a hiring bonus etc. None of this should be brought up until you get to the end of the process. If asked what you are looking for, just respond with, 'I am sure you will make me a fair and equitable offer.'"

It's a mistake that's most commonly made among companies in crisis and by those seeking to turn things around after a particularly rough patch. It's an error borne too often from the search for a quick or easy way out of a mess, and one sometimes grounded in a combination of short-term thinking, a failure to take risks, the desire to satisfy too many people, and/or a rush to judgment. It is the misguided belief that one executive leader can change things on her own.
Looking for too much in too few, or perhaps to singularly focus on the form of a new CEO or C-suite leader to lead the enterprise to new heights, is often a recipe for long-term disappointment.

This week, I was thrilled to discover I am more innovative than I ever expected and eight easy ways to jumpstart the process. I learned that good price is only the tenth thing customers want and that when people are upset, it matters less what you tell them
than what you enable them to tell you

Business and consumer confidence levels have, in recent years, become increasingly popular barometers of economic health. Whether it's a survey of CEOs' outlooks on growth and hiring, consumers' views on just how much they'll spend ahead of the holiday shopping season, or ExecuNet's own monthly tracking of what executive recruiters see over the horizon, confidence means a lot when uncertainty is high.
