  • I already have a full-time job. Why should I create a profile in the GigX Network?

    Full-time employment can feel secure, but there are no guarantees. By listing in the GigX Network, you let potential employers know that you’re interested in considering offers. You’re opening yourself up to more options, and having options is another form of security. Whether you accept an offer or not is up to you.

  • I’m already listed with other job sites. Why should I join GigX?

    GigX isn’t a job site. GigX maintains a Network of fractional CxOs, made up of director-level and above executives from around the world. The Network makes it easy for potential employers to find seasoned fractional leadership, as well as experts to speak at conferences and serve on boards of directors. Unlike job sites, our fees are very straightforward. You only pay for an ongoing membership, nothing more.

  • Besides the membership fee, does GigX charge anything when I get hired for fractional roles?

    Nope.

    To elaborate, we don’t make you pay extra when a potential employer clicks onto your resume. We don’t take a percentage of your fractional earnings. Our goal is to make it easy for organizations to find you, so you can get hired.

  • Do companies pay to search for fractional employees?

    No. We don’t charge companies, agents, or search firms anything to use the GigX Network for fractional hiring. Access is free and unlimited. However, we are exploring a few service offerings to allow potential employers to find you quicker, as they have expressed interest in such a service.

  • How will I know if someone wants to interview me?

    Organizations who are interested in you will contact you directly, either by a GigX email message or phone.

  • What is the difference between CxO and CXO?

    A CXO is a Chief Experience Officer, while CxO is used to describe all "Chief [fill in the blank] Officer" roles. When we refer to Fractional CxO, it is meant to represent all fractional C-level titles.

  • What do the different role options (fractional, contract, consulting, interim) mean and how do they differ?

    Each of the roles describe an alternative to traditional full-time employment, but each have differences that make them unique:

    1. Fractional: Fractional roles are part-time and ongoing, usually billed with daily equivalents (per week/per month), often allowing for multiple engagements simultaneously.
    2. Contract: Contract roles typically involve a specific project to be completed in a predetermined amount of time for a set fee or hourly rate.
    3. Consulting: Consulting roles are typically part-time in nature and involve working independently or with teams. They normally involve a specific skill set and the work is charged hourly.
    4. Interim: Interim roles are generally intended to be short-term in order to fill a gap in a company, while still allowing the company to assess the role going forward. Interim positions are normally full-time, with one company.

    While you'll primarily see references to "fractional" throughout the site, GigX allows you to indicate any of the roles you'd like to be considered for to help you secure the types of work you are most comfortable with.

    You can cancel your membership at any time on the "Payment" screen in the “Edit Profile” section of your profile.

Your Profile will remain visible in the Network but will only display the information included with the Bronze membership. If you wish your profile to no longer be listed in the Network, you can hide your profile via the setting on the same page. If you wish to have your account removed completely, please contact support for assistance.

  • What is GigX?

    GigX is the world’s #1 independent professional network. GigX connects organizations seeking top-notch professionals with executives seeking fractional/independent work.

  • What is a fractional executive/FCxO?

    A fractional role is typically part-time, for a long period of time. Fractional professionals are ideal candidates for:

    1. Roles that don’t require a full-time resource.
    2. Roles that are only needed for a certain period of time (such as specific projects).
    3. Roles that need temporary assistance while searching for a full-time resource or assessing the role going forward.
  • Why hire a fractional executive?

    Affordability: Hiring a Fractional CxO costs a fraction of what you’d pay a full-time executive.

    Flexibility: You choose how much help you need, and only pay for the amount of support you receive.

    Accessibility: Since the roles tend to be part-time or limited, Fractional CxOs often work remotely, which means your hiring pool isn’t limited to executives living near you.

  • I’ve already looked for candidates on other sites. Why should I search GigX?

    Unlike other sites that have candidates of all levels of experience and qualifications that have to be filtered and sorted through, GigX maintains a network of professionals that have performed at Director-level or above in their work history, making it easier to target the level of candidates required.

  • How is GigX different from job boards?

    Job boards require employers to post a job and hope for responses. The Network makes it easy for potential employers to quickly target seasoned fractional leadership, as well as experts to speak at conferences and serve on boards of directors.

  • What types of candidates can I find?

    GigX requires that members have performed at a Director level or above in their work history. Suitable titles include:

    1. Director and Senior Director
    2. VP, Senior VP, Executive VP
    3. CEO, CFO, CMO, CIO and other C-suite titles
    4. President, Owner, Founder and Co-founder
  • Do companies pay to search for fractional employees?

However, we are exploring a few service offerings to allow potential employers to find candidates quicker, as they have expressed interest in such a service.

  • How do I find the right candidates to take action?

    The Network has several options for searching such as Title Category and Titles, Industry, Location, Company Size, etc, to help employers narrow down potential candidates.

  • How do I contact a potential candidate?

    Once a candidate has been identified you can contact them directly, either by GigX email message or phone from their Profile page. Details such as how often the candidate will work, what the compensation will be, where and how they will engage with your team, etc, are a private conversation between you and the member. GigX doesn’t stand in the middle, and we don’t collect any fees.

  • How do I improve response rates when contacting candidates?

    Professionals at the level to be included in the GigX Network may have multiple opportunities, and just as you have a specific idea of the ideal candidate you're looking for, they typically have a very specific idea of the opportunities they're interested in as well.

    When you contact a candidate, be specific about what you're looking for. Include your name, title, and company, if possible. Personalize your message with their name and the items in their profile that caught your eye. Be clear and concise about the opportunity, and provide a link to the job description if possible. Be sure to include how the candidate can contact you and what information, if any, they should include when doing so.

  • How do I get started?

    Simply visit the Network and use the search tools to identify the candidates you’re interested in. Once you’ve identified potential candidates, visit their profile to review their information in detail, then click the Message button to send them a message or use their phone number to contact them directly.
