The new career of executives

Only a decade ago there were many certainties about the career of an average executive in a company. It was most likely that he had been selected from your personal contacts or by a head hunter who got his information from other contacts.

He would then have been interviewed based on the competencies determined by the company, which included teamwork, leadership, the ability to obtain results in interaction with clients, among other things.

Shortly thereafter, he would have been advised to seek a master's degree and would have had to calculate, among other requirements, the distance and time it would take to travel to his place of study to continue his training.

Already in its development, within the business, the company will have a lot of information recorded in the own databases and in the networks about meetings that you probably have with suppliers and customers through the company's platforms, without going to others' offices and leaving time information, interactions, messages and others.
