If you’re an executive seeking fractional employment, you can join GigX and create a profile.
I already have a full-time job. Why should I create a profile in the GigX Directory?
Full-time employment can feel secure, but there are no guarantees. By listing in the GigX Directory, 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 directory of fractional CxOs, made up of director-level and above executives from around the world. The directory 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 annual membership, nothing more.
Besides the annual membership fee, does GigX charge anything when I get hired for fractional roles?
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 Directory 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.
How is fractional different than interim?
A fractional role is typically part-time, for a long period of time. Because of the part-time nature of a fractional role, it's usually possible to hold several of these roles simultaneously.
