The Chairman of the Board of Directors is the highest held position in a company. The President is the highest position with direct command authority and usually deals with strategic matters.

The Senate has to approve the President's choices for "cabinet positions," that is, the heads of Executive branch departments. The President does have the authority to temporarily appoint a cabinet position without approval, if the Senate is not in session; that's called a "recess appointment."

The US President doesn't have any powers under the unwritten constitution. The United States does have a constitution so the president must follow those written laws.

It's complicated. There's only one US Constitution, and in it, the President serves four year terms. However, what you are probably asking about is the Articles of Confederation, which are sort of like a Constitution. Under the Articles of Confederation, no term length is specified for the "President of the Continental Congress". Each president served until they resigned or until a new president was elected by the Congress. It should be noted, however, that the President of the Continental Congress was a totally separate position, unrelated to what we now call the President. The PotCC was a largely ceremonial position that had almost no power; the position vaguely resembled the modern position of Speaker of the House. There was no equivalent to the modern presidency under the Articles.
