Executive Search In Academia


It often surprises people outside of the US that Academia is such a huge market for executive search firms – it’s a growing market in other parts of the World but is nothing like as established.  


Education is also a sector that is seeing increasing growth in internal search teams – a number of Advancement teams at leading Universities are using FileFinder Executive Search Software.


This is an interesting piece which – while primarily written to guide a candidate – offers some interesting perspectives on the challenges in this space.



Thanks to my research on academic careers and to my involvement (as committee chair or candidate) in more than a dozen hiring committees for senior administrators, I’ve spent a lot of time talking with search consultants.






FileFinder Executive Search Software is a powerful, and yet easy-to-use, combination of database, project management, web research and CRM tools, designed specifically for executive search firms and in-house strategic recruitment teams. Available as a cost-effective Cloud, browser-based application or via a variety of alternative deployment models, hundreds of search firms and corporate clients in 70+ countries rely on FileFinder technology to better manage their executive search process.
