Elevation Search partner on the keys to the kingdom of tech leadership
The demands on today’s top executives — inside their organizations and in the market — are as intense as ever. But Christel Alvarez, a partner at Elevation Search Solutions, says investors, directors and C-level leaders increasingly value in the people they want to help run their companies. Particularly in high-growth ventures in emerging markets, Alvarez says, being nimble and willing to take risks are traits in high demand.
Elevation Search Solutions is honored to have been ranked in the Top 10 of Nashville's largest recruiting firms, ranked by the number of 2017 retained permanent placements.
The Recruiters’ View: Veteran search pros share their thoughts on supply, demand and where a lot of our talent is coming
Compared to five years ago, how has the Nashville technology job market changed, for better and for worse?
"With Nashville being more in the spotlight as an attractive place to live, we’re seeing people come into the market with a newer set of skills in some of the latest technologies. The Emmas, the Eventbrites and others are working on platforms that are bringing that talent here. This has been a .NET town for so long, especially in health care IT.
Now, costs are going up for sure. With some jobs, it seems like they’re doing so month to month. In some areas of application development, these people are highly sought after — and that comes with a price. But if you look closely, Nashville is still a low-cost city compared to others — even Birmingham in some cases."
