Executive job positions are advertised quite a lot through different mediums like newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and the Internet. The main part of executive job descriptions is the functions that the executive is expected to perform, the roles and responsibilities, education and relevant experience of a candidate. These things and requirements vary from one individual to another and also differ from one job to another.
There are various kinds of executive positions that exist. Even in the same company, the type of executives working in it would differ and so would the executive job description for each of them.
The main accountability of an executive would depend on the type of company and what they are into. The job of the executive would also depend on whether the company is a service-oriented company, a business process company, a software company, product oriented company or a company that primarily caters to sales and target. These would determine whether the executive would be required to be stationary in the company office or he would be asked to move around quite a lot either in the town itself, across the country and even on the other side of the world.
Executive positions are some of the most important in any company. So much so that even the main job in any company is called the post of the Chief Executive Officer.
It is because of the various types of executive that an executive job description becomes very important. Often the job cannot be gauged just by reading the job title description. One has to read the whole executive job description so as to understand what the job entails, how much it pays and most important of all, does the job fit the description of what the person is looking for.
The other factors like annual income and key responsibilities depend on the type of job and the extent of experience that an executive has in his/her previous jobs.
