Breaking Into the $15B Executive Recruiting Industry

Over the past few weeks, the topic of the executive search and recruiting industry has sparked quite a bit of interest within the Trends community.

Sam posted an initial report in the Trends Facebook Group and then discussed the topic with Shaan on a “My First Million” Dollar Brainstorm podcast (February 6th, 2020; 21-minute mark).

Based on interest in the topic, we set out in this report to: 

  1. Give a broader overview of the executive recruiting industry, and 
  2. Analyze Google search data to identify recruiting opportunities within:
    • High-paying job functions (physicians, nurse practitioners, in-house counsel, data scientist, UX professionals) 
    • Fast-growing industries (3D printing, marijuana, clean energy)
