Who doesn’t want to be the big boss? This job category encompasses a variety of high-level positions at companies and organizations, including chief executives, financial and operating officers, executive vice-presidents and executive directors. You’ll make decisions about the organization’s mission and how to allocate resources. You’ll also represent your employer at official functions.
No one’s going to hire you to be the CEO on the strength of your cover letter. You’ll probably need a university degree in a discipline related to the organization’s work, plus years of experience as a senior manager.
The median salary for this job category is $110,000, but executives at major companies make much, much more.
The number of people working in positions encompassed by this job category increased 26% from 2013 to 2018. Five years from now, however, the government predicts there will be slightly fewer jobs than people looking for work.
