I am looking for a new job at the end of a long career. I have excellent experience in IP and Supply Chain Management. I've been fortunate to be in a high-paying position in the Los Angeles area and I rarely see comparable positions posted. The comparable positions at my company are filled by one of the big executive search firms. Any recommendations for finding the rare executive-level legal positions or for landing on the radar of the big executive search firms would be much appreciated!

Perfect question. I am in the same place. Thank you.

Why do you want to leave your current job?

My new manager is an insecure bully who manages up. Half of the department has left since they joined the company slightly over a year ago. There is no hope in sight for improvement.

Hi there, I’m a consultant at one of the large executive search firms. Happy to chat and get you on our radar.

Thank you! How do I reach you?

The salary for a 1+ YOE associate 10 years ago in my market was in the $50 - 70K range, but I’m guessing (hoping) that’s no longer the situation… TIA!
