An executive is the embodiment of the company. Every corporate executive knows what it takes to get to the top—drive, determination, and dedication! Chief executive officers are among the highest paid and best-compensated employees in the working world. However, becoming one usually takes several years of hard work and a track record of proven success. Of course, a critical piece is matching your qualifications to the specific situation. This is where we can help you!
The major differences between a professional and a seasoned professional are tenure on the job and level of experience. A seasoned professional is trusted and admired by his or her peers and is often looked to as a mentor for those new in the field. A seasoned professional knows what to do in any given situation and provides guidance to others based on his or her knowledge and skills. A seasoned professional is complimented by a steady progression of challenging assignments and a balanced escalation in responsibility.
The professional man or woman possesses distinctive qualifications both in education and in demonstrated experience. He or she is a person who enjoys a theoretical and/or practical body of knowledge and expertise recognized and respected by academia, the market, and society as a whole. Because of this recognition, the professional benefits from advantages not available to other workers. People who are recognized as professionals possess a social standing which is larger than the specific job they maintain. Professionals present with integrity and passion their vision of reality so that they can motivate themselves and others toward the goal of solving problems. They are confident in themselves and in their abilities to perform in their chosen field with assurance and conviction.
Many people are workers in a “skilled trade,” which means they are manual workers (blue collar) who happen to be very skilled in a particular craft or trade. A person described as “skilled” demonstrates expertise with a specific skill or set of related skills. A laborer is a person doing unskilled manual work for wages.
