Interviewer: “Essentially your service is a matchmaker, you find the contractors that do this sort of work and match up clients with them. Why is that kind of service necessary? Why can’t clients go out and find these guys themselves?”
Adam Fields, CEO of Arta: “it’s a very niche industry so it’s very fragmented, so a provider might only service a small quarter let’s say between New York and Chicago or New York and San Francisco, but there is no one-stop consolidated shop. It also takes time to put together a quote because of how fragmented the supply chain is.”
ASKMEN.COM, CEOS SHARE THEIR ADVICE ON HOW TO GET PROMOTED
“As Adam Fields, CEO of Arta, explains, being promoted is a two-way street requiring two key players: employee and manager. While your managers are tasked with providing you a reasonable timeline for upward mobility and tracking your progress, the ball is in your court to hustle and ask for not only what you want, but can prove you deserve.
‘Employees must be prepared to take advantage of the opportunities that align with their pathway to promotion,’ Fields says. ‘It’s important to remember that employers and managers prefer to promote from within as it validates their hiring efforts, extends an employee’s lifeline within the company, provides further incentive for others, and optimizes internal resources and focus.’”
