Thought For The Week

THERE are three ways to gain the attention of headhunters.

1. Reputation and profile – make sure you are known in the industry for the hard work you have done.

2. Networking – absolutely crucial to be known in  headhunting circles.

3. Approaching them first – there aren’t many leading ones, they are easy to get to know, phone them before they call you.

  1. Good advice for someone who wants to get on in business.
    Theses are very good tips so I will try and give them a go.

  2. Headhunters can’t always be found.
    If they are around, it is not always possible to go and find them just like that. Guess that’s where the networking comes in.

  3. I approached a headhunter once. It was a Chelsea one. bit of a spat ensued. Then we got on with watching the game!

  4. Networking gets you to a certain place but you need to show your worth at work to really make an impact with any type of headhunter who might see your potential for a future role.
