The laws for evaluating and discussing employee compensation are undergoing dramatic changes. Under these laws, you can no longer ask a candidate about their past compensation, and, in some cases, even if it’s voluntarily provided without prompting, you can’t make future offers based on that information. If you’re in the business of recruiting, hiring, or managing employees, you need to prepare yourself for the new normal to avoid penalty.

For more than 40 years, Howard Fischer Associates has helped leaders to secure executive positions in companies where they will thrive over the long term. During that time, we’ve worked with a range of experienced and successful candidates, those who have proven themselves to be valuable assets in the workplace. Being a successful job candidate is very similar to being a successful business person. It requires preparation, strategic thinking, and a vision for the end game. Whether you see yourself as an active or a passive candidate, if you agree to an interview you need to go in prepared. It is well understood that that means reading up on the company and the interviewers so that you can come across informed. What is less well understood, is that a candidate also needs to have a strategy going into the discussion and a game plan for subsequent rounds of interviews.

In my work across the sphere of high-tech executive recruiting, I’ve had the privilege to meet a diverse population of leaders. Some I’ve met on the conference and speaking circuits, some have been clients, and others have been cherished coworkers. Most have been charismatic, intelligent, and passionate individuals, with a genuine sense of concern for the wellbeing of the people under their command and a vision for the future of their organizations.
