“A great CV makes up less than half of what’s needed for a long and successful new employment history,” explains Dr. Reiner Mark, managing partner at Dr. Heimeier & Partner. “It’s a lot more important that the candidate shares the same fundamental values and beliefs, is a so-called cultural fit and owns the potentials that will benefit the new company in the long run.” Thus, the consultancy always ensures the “right overall fit” of a candidate.
The candidates, who often come from safe top management positions, also have to be convinced that the next step is right for them.
