More than 50 pc top execs willing to jump ship for new job

Washington, Sept. 22 (ANI): A new study has revealed that majority of the high-level executives are ready to leave their job for another, if a recruiter offers them a fresh opportunity.

Peter Cappelli, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, analysed the data of a prominent executive-search firm to find how frequently executives were positive in their response to recruiters.

He found that more that half of chief executives said that they were ready to participate in a search, and so did 65 percent of executive vice presidents, the Washington Post reported.

It is very important to understand how retained search firms typically work: When a candidate agrees to be considered for the job, they often have no clue about the positions that are available or what the pay or benefits would be.

Cappelli was able to conclude that it is easier to be sure that the person's response is driven by their circumstances and not by the nature of the position that is being offered. (ANI)
