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.
(Extract from The Naked Leader)
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.
I network in the hope of getting headhunted.
Guess I need to contact the headhunters first!
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.
I approached a headhunter once. It was a Chelsea one. bit of a spat ensued. Then we got on with watching the game!
Network, network, network, that’s the key here.
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.
