Executive Hiring Trends 2023 (Panel webinar)

Despite economic headwinds in some major markets, hiring activity in most sectors remains strong as companies continue in their efforts to reconfigure their post-pandemic business.

In this panel webinar, featuring head-hunters from Europe and Asia, we will look at current hiring trends for experienced professionals and share intelligence on the state of the hiring market in different sectors and regions.

We will examine:

The sectors hiring most actively.
New skill requirements (for instance related to digital and sustainability)
How candidates can best position themselves.
Current hiring controversies related to home vs office working.
How candidates can bridge the divide between mid-level and senior roles.
Some mistakes to avoid (and opportunities to impress) in the new virtual hiring model.

Everyone who registers will be asked to complete our hiring trends 2023 survey (and receive results) and submit questions in advance to the panel.
