How to Get on a Board

How to Get on a Board

Securing yourself a board position as an experienced director or executive requires a similar skillset to school leavers and university graduates. In this situation however, you’re able to leave your naivety in your youth and apply years of experience to your benefit.

Here are five ways to get on a board.

Before you begin your search, ask yourself the questions you would face in a board interview.

  • Why do you want to be on a board?
  • What can you bring to this company?
  • What are your most significant and rewarding successes and how did you achieve them?

Your search for a board seat will take a lot of time, so it’s best to establish your elevator pitch at the beginning. Opportunities are everywhere if you pay attention, because you might literally find yourself in an elevator with someone who needs a board member.

If you’d like to know how eligible you are to sit on a board, schedule a call with one of our Executive Agents today.
