It was perhaps weird that I posted my last blog about a mentee who was trying to get hired to his dream job before knowing if my advice worked in his case! A few days after my post, he told me he followed the tips and he did end up getting hired to his dream job, as CEO of a hospitality company. And he is loving his job.
What a wonderful thing it is to have a job you love.
Speaking of having a job you love, please make someone’s day and give some thought to this question:
Do you know someone who has what it takes to get hired to the consulting firm ranked #1 in overall satisfaction?
To answer that question, you need to know what firm has the most satisfied people, and who gets hired.
What firm is ranked #1 in overall satisfaction?
- The #1 ranked consulting firm for “overall satisfaction” by its people is ghSMART, the leadership advisory firm where I work.
- Also, the #1 ranked firm for “challenging work” is ghSMART.
- And, #1 ranked firm for “client interaction” is ghSMART, which we won last year as well.
- ghSMART also ranked in the top 5 firms for work-life balance, upward mobility, selectivity, hours in the office, overall business outlook, and compensation.
If you know somebody who wants to join the firm with the most satisfied people, where you get to do the most challenging and meaningful work, which is well-compensated, and enjoy freedom to have a life outside of work, please forward this blog to them and it might change their life for the better.
Who does ghSMART hire?
ghSMART typically hires the highest performers from other top professional services firms globally.
The consultants have Ph.D.s or MBAs from leading programs. Staff members have relevant experiences for their functional areas. There is a wide diversity in the backgrounds of our folks, but two things are required: you have to be super-talented, and nice! People who have not performed at the top 25% of their peer group won’t get hired. People who have performed well but who are not nice won’t get hired.
If you know a wildly-talented and good-hearted person whom you think would qualify (either for a consulting or staff role), please suggest they email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a career discussion to learn more. Thank you!
