Choose to Work for Companies with Respected Leadership

Becoming a high-potential employee in a Fortune 500 company with highly regarded leadership and good “Street vitals” strengthens your résumé.

When a manager has an opportunity to hire someone, experience in a solid organization brings positive assumptions and associations to the candidate, even before there is a first meeting. It might be presumed that if you passed muster and were hired, and possibly promoted, at a company that they consider a role model or chief rival, you will have learned a great deal about discipline, process, accountability, and the industry.
