"There is a massive shift in geo-political power taking place right now globally," said Alec Ross, former Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State and an expert in geopolitics of cybersecurity. Most people think power is going toward Asia, but Ross does not think power is moving that way. He thinks power is moving in all 196 countries from traditional hierarchies to individuals and to networks of individuals. "No longer can seven men determine the futures of billions of people," said Ross. This is good because geo-political power is distributed from the few to the many. It is bad because it makes problem solving very difficult.

The United States has had trouble adjusting to this shift. The US is still indispensable, but there is very little it can, and should, do on its own anymore.

What Members Learned About Job Search

Posted By: Mark Anderson

I wasn't surprised last week when I reviewed feedback from members on what surprised them about the job search process, what worked for them, what they wished they had known before they started and the value of recruiters. In their own voices, here are some key learnings from the "real world":


As part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a bi-weekly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline where members call in to ask the questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about issues that are important to executives today.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by executive career coach and ExecuNet networking facilitator John O'Connor, and a member asked us, "I have received good replies getting initial phone interviews with my résumé as it stands, rather than show unemployed at the top. Is it okay not to bother updating my résumé to show I've left my former company? If that is okay, how long is okay to not update it?"

How Long Does it Take Executives to Find Their Next Job?

We are often asked, How long does it take executives to find their next job? There are too many individual variables to factor in, but you can be certain of one thing – it takes longer than you might think.

Why is this important? It means a lot actually – emotionally and economically. For someone making $175,000+ per year, a job search that takes one month longer means $15,000 or more in lost salary. So it's important to keep ahead of the projected landing time because it can save you tens of thousands of dollars.

We routinely survey members about how long they think it will take them to make a job change. We just completed a survey, and like in years past, they reported 6.4 months on average—a little shorter this year than during the recession.


CEO sisters Denise Morrison and Maggie Wilderotter shared personal stories and philosophies on business and rising to leadership.

Morrison is President and CEO of Campbell Soup and is regularly recognized as one of the "Most Powerful Women" on Forbes' and Fortune's lists. Maggie Wilderotter is President and CEO of Frontier Communications and was named by Fortune as one of the "50 Most Powerful Women in Business" for four consecutive years.
