I’ve run an executive search firm for over a decade, and have worked in the search business since the late 80′s.
How people get jobs has changed quite a bit during the past 25 years … but most of the advice you’re getting has not.
That’s a problem for you.
As a search firm insider, I know how the hiring process works, and more importantly, how it does NOT work. So, I want to pass along some of the most realistic, practical advice I’ve heard. Some posts are my own perspective, but I also like to share posts from knowledgeable people who tell it like it is.
There’s no profit making agenda with this blog. Employers pay our fees, not job seekers. We don’t want to sell you career counseling, outplacement services, or resume writing. Hey, we don’ t even have a book we want you to buy. We just want to improve your job hunting experience – whether you are working with us on one of our searches, or not.
I want to be helpful to you, so please write feel free to comment on the posts. Tell me what you need, or what challenges you are facing. Because if you have a question, you can bet that someone else out there has the same question.
