C-level is a term that business types like to toss around a lot. It describes high-ranking executive titles – the black suites – within an organization. C-level/C-suite positions are typically considered the most influential, and they are associated with high-stake decisions, high salaries, and very demanding work.
When a big company loses an executive, the hunt is on for someone to fill that chair. Executives aren’t irreplaceable, but they don’t grow on trees either. Which means that the job offer will be attractive as hell. In some cases, it’s so attractive that you might miss some important details. Details that actually matter more than a fat paycheck.
