News for job seekers

Job interviews are nerve-racking for even the most polished candidates and it’s all too easy to succumb to foot-in-mouth disease. Among the worst gaffes? When you can feel the wrong words leaving your lips while your inner voice is screaming, “No, no! Abort! Abort!” Fortunately, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve totally wrecked your chances at landing the job.

In the old days, if a CEO was hired from outside the company, it was usually done as a last resort—either a suitable successor hadn’t been groomed or the current CEO was forced out suddenly. Times are changing, however, as more companies are purposely seeking outside CEOs, according to the latest CEO Success study from Strategy&, PwC’s strategy consulting business. The study revealed that from 2012 to 2015, boards chose an outsider CEO in 22% of planned turnovers, up from 14% from 2004 to 2007.
