One should not automatically assume that frequent “jumps” on a resume reflect incompetence or poor job fit but rather, perhaps, a budding trailblazer whose career path reflects an opportunistic or entrepreneurial mindset.

Keith W. Trowbridge, Ph.D., President and CEO of Executive Quest, Inc., http://www.execq.com is a worldwide provider of executive recruitment services for the timeshare, vacation ownership, and fractional industry. Trowbridge http://www.execq.com/keith.htm reported in a recent Executive Quest monthly online newsletter that conclusions from a recent Cornell Hospitality white paper revealed that supervisors should not automatically assume that frequent “jumps” or tenures on a resume reflect incompetence, poor job fit or proneness to distraction. Rather, the individual in question could be a budding trailblazer whose career path reflects an opportunistic or entrepreneurial mindset. In another report, research compiled by Jobvite shows that average tenures are in decline. The typical worker expects to change jobs between 11 and 14 times in a lifetime which puts average tenures anywhere between two and four years.

“This means there are a lot of top-notch industry professionals ready to make moves into the right next step for their careers,” suggested Trowbridge. An organization is only as good as its leaders and Executive Quest’s database of 27,000+ timeshare industry specialists opens up channels and pools of timeshare talent that the candidate or client may miss.

Executive Quest’s clients are typically looking for management employees from almost every department, from finance, operations, IT and management department heads to construction management, service, rentals, exchanges and HOA professionals. The company groups candidates by experience and has over 100 groups, such as Director of Sales, General Manager, Sales Manager, Project Manager, Regional VP, Call Center Director, Vice President, etc.

Trowbridge writes a free monthly on-line newsletter with a subscription of better than 27,000 timeshare industry professionals that includes a calendar of upcoming industry conferences and events along with other timely industry articles.
