C-level is a term used to describe people at the top of a corporate organizational chart (e.g. Chief Executive Officer). For example, a recruiter walking you through a potential career path might highlight, “You will enter at the Associate level; progress to Director level, then to VP; next you’ll hit President and finally C-level. That’s where things really get fun.”
People also occasionally refer to C-suites, or the offices the C-level executives occupy. You know the ones – typically corner offices with lots of windows and amazing views from the top of the world.
