Choose Your Career
| Even if your
experiences or interests cover more than one
field, our form takes into account multiple career
fields, titles, industries
and possibilities for which you believe your skills
would be suited for
the job market.
your category on the basis of your duties and
not on your title alone.
Your title might not be
appropriate to what you actually do and
it may be non-standard in your industry. For example,
if your title is "Operations Manager," but you really
are an IT manager, you should choose "IT," not
"Operations and Manufacturing." Another example: if
you have a title of "General Manager," but you are
really a salesperson in a very small company, please
"Sales." In another example, if your title is
"Executive Vice President,"
you need to determine if your duties and experiences
are more appropriate
to "General Management," "Sales," "Supply Chain," or
do not choose a category if that category does not
fit your past or current experience, even if you
want to leave your current
field and move into that other field.
In your application and cover
letter you can tell us clearly
your preferences and requirements. At ART, humans will
read and analyze
your application and resume. Your application will be
categorized only according
to our analysis of your past and present career
experiences. We want to help
put you on the career path you choose, but to do so,
we first need to understand
where you have been and what you know now. Please note
that if you choose an inappropriate category now, your
eventual proper categorization by ART staff might be
choosing a field describing your current or past
you are not removing yourself from
consideration for other positions,
including promotions in your industry or moves to
more challenging jobs
in other industries or markets.
Whenever an ART client company
tells us that they can consider,
for example, a President whose experiences have
primarily been in sales,
we would review all appropriate resumes of General
Managers/ Presidents and
Sales Managers for that position. In another example,
if an information technology or software firm asked us
to find a Sales Manager, but did not require
previous IT or software sales experience, we
would search our database for appropriate Sales
Manager candidates from both inside and outside our
client's industry. Please understand that it is always
in a search firm's interest to include as many
appropriate candidates as possible in any interview
process, but that the final say of approval for
consideration is always that of the employer.
