Laid-off execs finding jobs at same or higher levels, Right Management data says

Right Management, a career transition arm of Manpower,  says its data show that three of four laid-off executives who received Right Management services and got jobs in the first half this year landed posts at the same or higher levels.

The likelihood of landing a better job was higher for executives in the South, at 76 percent, compared to a 72 percent national average, Right Management said.

The firm analyzed data on nearly 600 senior-level positions, and includes titles such as general manager, director, vice president, senior vice president, executive VP, and CEO.

Right Management tips for executive-level jobseekers in today's market:

  • "Get up to speed fast...Know the priorities and develop a plan for the first 30, 60 and 90 days."
  • "Understand the culture of the prospective employer in advance of the interview."
  • "Highlight in resume and during interviews how interpersonal and work skills will align with the company's culture."

The study was conducted Jan. 1-June. 30.
