BlueSteps.com - Your Connection to the World of Executive Search

BlueSteps, the executive career management service of the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants, provides you with increased visibility within the retained executive search community through a confidential career profile that is accessible to all AESC member firms around the world.

Over 350 of the world's leading executive search firms in over 75 countries are members of the AESC, handling over 90,000 searches for top management roles each year. Due to the high level and confidential nature of these searches, these roles are never posted on job boards or advertised publically. Instead, AESC members do proactive candidate research, including using BlueSteps to locate executives for their active searches.

Columbia Business School students and alumni receive an exclusive 30% discount on BlueSteps lifetime membership, and as an additional benefit, BlueSteps will waive the annual fee for our Premium Services.
