Hey there! What sector of energy? Classic or renewable?

Yes we are- what sort of level is she looking to move into? And which region?

Have you had any outreach from recruiters on your next move? You could start with recruiters you've built relationships with, to ask to review your background and assess what elements might be missing or could be further invested in, to make you stand out as an option for C-level roles.

What about going to one of your clients?

New here and looking for some advice. When I started with my company, I was hired at the manager level. I’m now at the VP level with corresponding salary and financial package but looking for a job change. Not sure how to move on to something better when VP roles aren’t readily posted to job boards. I did submit my resume to 2 executive search firms, but haven’t heard from either one. Where is the best place to look?

When I am super busy and can’t breathe from all the meetings, I feel needed and secure. When I have big gaps on my calendar I feel insecure and unneeded. I guess this is fear of being left out syndrome? Ugh
