Topic: Magnetize Your Executive Job Search

Speaker: Somer Hackley, CEO, Distinguished Search


Why do some people get access to all the top jobs? Executive search is a mystery, but it doesn’t have to be. Somer Hackley is an executive recruiter who has placed C-level, SVP, VP, and Director-level executives into highly coveted roles, and wants to show you how it works.

In this webinar, Somer will share a candid view of the world of executive search. You will learn:

  • Who recruiters target for executive positions and how to be on their list.
  • Do’s and don’ts of building your recruiter network.
  • How to become the #1 candidate. 
  • How to confidently navigate compensation discussions, learning lessons from your peers.

This talk is for anyone who wants to land an executive position:

  • Active job seekers: this is your toolkit to launch and refine your job search.
  • Passive job seekers: you’ll understand how to be a magnet that attracts great jobs months and years from now.
  • Executives who have been heads-down working for years: this will help you jumpstart building your recruiter network.

This interactive webinar will be grounded with real life examples and actionable insights. We look forward to seeing you!

Speaker’s bio:

Somer Hackley is the founder and CEO of Distinguished Search, a retained executive search firm. She has been in recruiting for twenty years, including the last thirteen years in executive search. She spent six years at CTPartners, the seventh-largest global retained search firm, and later ran the North America Digital, Technology, and Commerce Practice at a leading boutique. She went off on her own in 2020, inspired to launch a firm aligned with her core values: working with fewer clients and offering more personalized services. She has placed executives in companies from Fortune 100 to startups, with a focus on technology and digital positions mainly within financial services and fintech. She received her degree in economics from Tufts University in 2002.

The need for transparency in executive search led to her debut book, Search in Plain Sight: Demystifying Executive Search. There was a tight race in 2022 between the due dates of her baby and her book, and the book won by about a week, which was lucky timing. She lives with her husband, son, and two cats in Austin, TX, though feels she will always be a New Yorker.
