Career Outlook Summary

Career Choice: Chief Executive Officer

Description of Career: Top executives devise strategies and policies to ensure that an organization meets its goals. They plan, direct, and coordinate operational activities of companies and organizations.

Skills and Education Required: Most Chief Executives have a Bachelor's or Master's  in business administration or in an area related to their field. Big corporations have CEO's that have acquired their masters in business administration.

Communication skills. Top executives must be able to communicate clearly and persuasively. They must effectively discuss issues and negotiate with others, direct subordinates, and explain their policies and decisions to those within and outside the organization.

Decision-making skills. Top executives need decision-making skills when setting policies and managing an organization. They must assess different options and choose the best course of action, often daily.

Leadership skills. Top executives must be able to lead an organization successfully by coordinating policies, people, and resources.

Management skills. Top executives must organize and direct the operations of an organization. For example, they must manage business plans, employees, and budgets.

Problem-solving skills. Top executives need problem-solving skills after identifying issues within an organization. They must be able to recognize shortcomings and effectively carry out solutions.

Time-management skills. Top executives must be able to do many tasks at the same time, typically under their own direction, to ensure that their work gets done and that they meet their goals.

Job Outlook:   Employment of top executives is projected to grow 11 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Employment growth will vary widely by industry and is largely dependent on the rate of industry growth. The median annual wage for chief executives was $168,140 in May 2012. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $76,220, and the top 10 percent earned more than $187,200. Many top executives advance within their own firm, moving up from lower level managerial or supervisory positions. However, other companies may prefer to hire qualified candidates from outside their organization. Top executives that are promoted from lower level positions may be able to substitute experience for education to move up in the company.


Term Summary

This past year has been an unforgettable experience that I will not soon forget. I had the opportunity to meet a lot of amazing people this year and watch them grow as leaders within this student business organization.I also had the opportunity to make life long friends with my State Officer team and I know I will keep in contact with all of them for the rest of my life. from officer Leadership Camp to the State Leadership Conference, that is coming up, I have had an amazing time. overall I am so glad I made the decision to run for State office because I have accomplished so much in the span of one year.

In just one years time I have been able to learn so much, get into the college of my dreams, and get mentored by some amazing leaders within FBLA. Being a part of this premier student business organization has taught me life lessons that will allow me to be more successful as I go into the work force. I have learned effective management, administration, and team building skills. But, above all I have learned how to lead a team of individuals towards a common goal. To me these are the most important accomplishments that I have acquired this past year as they correlate directly into my ideal career. 

The biggest project I worked on this year was keeping the Facebook and Twitter pages for FBLA Arizona up and running. As a team we came up with themes for each day of the week as well as tips and tricks for competitions. Each State Officer would then send me their respective theme days and I would go ahead and post them each day. It was great to see the number increase on both pages as more and more members liked or retweeted what FBLA Arizona was saying. Another project I was able to work on as a State Officer was lead the FBLA Arizona delegation when it came time to decide on national voting delegates. This was a huge project for me because I wanted to educate the delegation as best as I could. In order to do this I went to all the Q&A sessions, the campaign sessions, and the voting sessions. When it was time to personally meet the candidates I made it a personal goal of mine to really find out who they were and what kind of person I was putting into office. By being a part of this process I was able to learn how to communicate effectively with others as well as being responsible for the well being of a larger group of individuals. A year as a State Officer is truly one filled with many opportunities to learn, grow, and develop necessary skills that will be beneficial to ones life in the very near future.
