A new breed of interim manager or “super temp” has arisen due to the preference of companies to hire experienced executives, rather than consultants. This year, 29% of super temps previously held chief executive positions, whereas only 16% had done so in 2012. These so called super temps can earn over $1,000 per day, and so it is unsurprising that 63% of super temps would choose this style of work over permanent employment. Super temping is increasing in popularity and could change the way businesses operate.

LinkedIn has now made vast improvements to its increasingly popular Who’s Viewed Your Profile feature, helping users analyze their results and work towards increasing their visibility in specific areas and industries.

Whether you are an aspiring board director or a current member of a board, it is vital that your LinkedIn profile is up-to-date, board appropriate and utilized effectively to maximize your board career opportunities. LinkedIn is a great tool for board directors as it can help you share updates about your organization, allow you to follow influencers in your industry, connect with fellow board members, and be found by those conducting board searches.
