SearchCIO.com senior news writer Linda Tucci continues her discussion about careers in part two of this podcast series with CIO recruiter Shawn Banerji, managing director of technology and business services at Russell Reynolds Associates Inc. in New York.
In this installment, Banerji talks about common mistakes CIOs make when interviewing. Jargon, of course, is a no-no, but so is underestimating your interviewer's understanding of technology -- in particular, the value that technology can bring to an organization. Banerji explains the trend toward "competency-based" interviewing and how to make a business case for your talent and skills.
BIOGRAPHY: Based in New York, Banerji recruits CIOs and CTOs across a variety of industries, including banking and insurance, publishing and media, as well as process industries such as energy and distribution. He also has extensive experience in the technology and business process outsourcing marketplace. This includes shared/business services search work for large corporations. Prior to joining Russell Reynolds in 1999, Banerji worked in the advertising industry at Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide Inc.. He is fluent in Bengali, English and Hindi.
