In this episode, we dig into the ins and outs of the Head Professional interview process. This discussion is going to be a great resource for any of you listening that are either planning on interviewing for a Head Professional position or if you will be helping to coach an aspiring Head Professional through the interview process. We brought back Patrick Seither (Episode 001 & 003), the President and CEO of the Golf Business Network, to pick his brain about his experience running the Executive Search side of GBN’s business.
Patrick sees this process through from start to finish, working with both the candidate as well as the clubs, so his insight is really unique in this area. We discuss what clubs are looking for today in their next Head Professional, how you can stand out from the pack in a competitive interview process, the nuts and bolts of the interview including reference letters and portfolios, and how to ask thoughtful questions that can impress a search committee.
Hopefully this helps anyone out there that will be going through this process. And if you are...good luck!
