The Chief Executive
Meet Joan. Joan is CEO for one of the United Kingdom's largest FinTech organizations.
Learn how Joan used BlueSteps to successfully transition to a new CEO position in her industry of expertise and desired location.
Joan was ready for a new challenge.
After working within the same organization for 10+ years, having advanced internally, Joan realized the opportunities for future internal advancement were not going to come anytime soon. She would need to transition to a new organization if she were going to land an opportunity as Chief Executive.

Joan used tips from the BlueSteps Insights Vault to appropriately contact each search consultant..
Joan connected with a BlueSteps advisor.
It had been over ten years since Joan’s last interview, so she decided to connect with a BlueSteps career coach for a complimentary consultation.

After just three coaching sessions, Joan was on her way to mastering her next executive interview.
Joan refined her job search strategy.
Joan found a wealth of valuable tips on how to connect with executive recruiters from the Executive Careers webinar series. Joan was interested in learning more about executive search and the CEO role, so she downloaded "Executive Careers: Are You Ready to Become a CEO?"
