Welcome to NotionPath - your source for top employers committed to hiring the best talent to help them fuel their growth. We leverage a process called Reverse Recruiting. Instead of you spending hours on job boards and networking we do the leg work for you to find roles and companies that fit you. Our process at times can go fast if we already have a relationship with a company and they have a need. But generally, it may take a few weeks as we confidentially reach out to employers or as openings come up.
Our process is highly confidential and built on trust and respect. We never share names with employers until you have been made aware of an opportunity, get time to do your own due diligence, and then and only then do we make a formal invitation to the hiring manager. On your end, we ask for honesty and openness to share your story. The better we understand you the more effective we can be.
We look forward to serving you.

The NotionPath Pre-Interview Prep Process
Warning - this may be one of the longest online application processes you will do as our intent is to gather as much information as possible to ensure the best fit possible. Along the way, we also think this process will help YOU to be better prepared and nail any interview.
One of our goals at NotionPath is to thoroughly understand any candidate we present and help you fully prepare for your interviews. We will act as coach and screener – yes we can help you prepare but we also have a responsibility to employers to ensure we present the best candidates for their needs. Therefore, we go through a three step process BEFORE we will present any candidate:
STEP1: What you must be prepared to have written down
These are demanding roles and your ability to both sell yourself, your experience, your accomplishments doing so in clear and concise manner. Treat this as an opportunity to get clear on yourself and what you bring to this role. Generally, we do advise candidates to get support from a quality Resume writer that has specific experience with C-Level Executive roles. NotionPath will provide feedback but also see great value in quality writers.
LETTER OF INTEREST (Cover letter) – treat this like an elevator pitch – you have two minutes of another executive time to state your case. Three paragraphs and a short bullet point list of key accomplishments. Use real data as much as possible but of course any confidentiality agreements you have in place. Identify which C-Level role fits you best.
RESUME (2 pages) – Yes, stay within two pages. 10 years of employment history is generally enough. Use bullet points with each role to highlight key responsibilities or accomplishments.
REFERENCES (three professional including at least 2 direct supervisors) – besides contact info share why you think this person will be a good reference, what accomplishments they can confirm, are they easy to get a hold of and if not how and when is the best time to contact them.
STEP 2: Assessments
These roles typically will include multiple interviews, phone and in person. Many employers do assessments – personality profiles, intelligence assessments, emotional intelligence and other types of tools to help them screen analyze and compare candidates. At NotionPath we believe you should be well aware of these assessments and may recommend you also. Anticipating and understanding these assessments and how you specifically will do can be very helpful to address any potential weakness and often turning what could be perceived as a weakness and turn it into a strength. Employers want Executives that have a good understanding of themselves - strengths and weakness – yes we all have them. At NotionPath we will introduce you to some free assessment tools and others paid with the goal to help you understand yourself better and prepare before walking into the interviews.
STEP 3: Interviewing
The last step in the process is actual interviews. Phone, online, face-to-face. It’s our chance to see how you can pull all of the above details about yourself. We’ll also use a couple of different questioning approaches – traditional, open ended questions, and situational questions.
