Marc Cenedella is the CEO and founder of TheLadders.com, the world's largest professional jobs website. Cenedella started TheLadders.com in July of 2003 to solve a puzzling gap in the world of online recruitment and high-end employment. As the Senior Vice President of Finance and Operations at HotJobs.com, he saw that, while large job boards worked well for entry and mid-level candidates, high-level job searches were not being conducted efficiently online. Job seekers were frustrated, while recruiters often elected not to post their executive opportunities online at all. Cenedella's solution to this dilemma was a reverse business model that catered to the high-end job seeker.
Cenedella holds an MBA with high distinction from Harvard Business School, where he was named a Baker Scholar. He earned his B.A. in political science at Yale.
Unfortunately the way that a lot of people do it is they take the most interesting job that happens to be randomly offered to them over the phone every several years.
I made every possible first-year mistake that a first-year manager can make.
If there is no drama in a meeting it has no purpose for being.
