Find Jobs in all states Jobs across the state - not available elsewhere on the Web. This is an important fact to keep in mind. What kinds of "professional services" does a good "headhunter" offer you as a candidate? Informed coaching to significantly improve your performance—and chances! By the way, nearly one-half of the jobs available today fall into this "hidden" or "unadvertised" market category! Let me give you some examples from our recruiting firm of what I'm talking about here:.
Getting on a Good 'Headhunter's' 'Radar'. Once job seekers fully understand and appreciate how tremendously beneficial a relationship with a good "headhunter" can be, they usually have just one question: How can I get one interested in assisting me during my job search?! That is, you must convince the "headhunter" that it can benefit him or her and you, of course! A "headhunter" normally will make the determination of whether or not you are selectable during the initial telephone call to you. Bear in mind that the "headhunter" has already determined, at least for the time being, that you meet all or most of the other qualifying criteria or you wouldn't be receiving a phone call in the first place.

If I, for one, or a company I represent even suspect that there is a possibility that a potential candidate will do that, I simply won't work with them, and most other "headhunters" feel the same way. Be able to properly and clearly articulate why you would be open to considering an opportunity if it were clearly stronger than what you are doing today. Is it due to a desire for career growth?
A desire to change geographic locales? The opportunity to move to a larger, more stable firm or smaller, more entrepreneurial firm? Do you feel the need to establish a better, more desirable work-life balance? As the "headhunter" reveals the career opportunity to you, think on your feet and start "translating your skills. Example: My recruiting firm is currently recruiting for a position for a chemical company that provides solutions to hospitals for reducing HAI healthcare acquired infections. We were speaking with a potential candidate who currently is a medical device representative selling intravenous IV equipment and solutions.
He immediately began to share with us how vitally important it is for healthcare providers to buy and use the correct IV supplies in order to prevent HAI.
