Fortune’s Top 25 Companies for Leaders

by Meg Guiseppi on December 15, 2009

A highly effective, proactive approach to senior executive job search begins by researching and compiling a list of companies that will fit your objectives and career fulfillment needs.

After determining your target companies and key hiring decision makers within them, you can develop a strategic plan to connect with them and get under their radar on social networking sites like LinkedIn and Twitter.

Despite the current job market, there are top-level executive jobs out there. Don’t always expect to find these jobs on the companies’ websites or anywhere else in print. Many are “hidden jobs” that are never advertised and/or don’t exist but are created for the right candidate to meet companies’ particular challenges.

Fortune’s November 19th article listing the top 25 global companies that truly develop strong leaders will give you a great starting point for developing your list.

Teaming with human resources consultants Hewitt Associates and the RBL Group, Fortune surveyed more than 500 global companies searching for those who are best at attracting, retaining, and nurturing talent.

According to Fortune reporters Beth Kowitt and Kim Thai:

“The companies that made the cut have one thing in common: They know that investing in their employees isn’t a luxury — it’s a necessity.”
