No; 'land'. 'Land' means 'get, obtain'. Persons with high IQs would have no reason for 'always leaving' the top jobs.

collocation: land the top jobs - I' ve never heard, but I see it is a very important collocation when sb gets/obtains a work. We can say simply when we got a work: I 've just landed a work. or He's just landed a starring work.Many thanks.
