Job Hunting Director

A must read for all executives who are considering a move or are already actively looking.


7 STEPS

Step 0: Strategy

Having a competent Career Angel by your side is a precondition. Have a coffee or tea with one of our angels and convince yourself. We will tell you how to find the job you are looking for. How to scan the market discretely for opportunities. How to improve your CV. Free of charge. You will be able to do it all by yourself. Most importantly, you’ll be able to decide if and how much to delegate.

Step 1: CV

Knowing where you are currently at & where you are heading to is key. Without that we cannot take the next step. At the end of this phase you have a CV and profile summary that underlines your strengths and uniqueness & is written for the eyes of a potential employer. Where necessary we also take care of translating it into other languages.

Step 2: Online

Have you ever googled anyone? Yourself? Every detail on the Internet can work in favor of or against you. You want the former. While you are reading this information headhunters are searching the Internet for candidates. Why haven’t they contacted you yet? Prior to your first meeting, your potential employer will „google” you. Will you get a second chance for a good first impression?

Step 3: Job ads

Applying to hundreds of job ads is one of the least effective job hunting methods, but one that must not be left out. Our dear friend Vilfredo Pareto knew that 20% of efforts generate 80% of results. For us, 80% is not enough. As we want to ensure you receive the BEST available job offer, we will not exclude online ads, though will spend the least time on it.

Step 4: Headhunters

Headhunters work for their corporate clients, not for you. At the end of the day, it’s them who pay their bills. So, how do we put headhunters to work for you? We don’t. The recruitment market is driven by companies as that is where the money lies. We will prepare a list of 20 headhunters with relevant (industry) expertise as they have access to insider information. A handful might act upon an excellent CV.

Step 5: Employer

Strategic positions are rarely discussed publicly. When it’s in the news, it’s already too late. Therefore we go directly to the source. The source can be an initiated headhunter into the company’s strategy, or the HR Director, or a member of the management board. We research your TOP 20 & provide you with the relevant contact person. You are then just one email away from your dream job!

Step 6: Interviews

Screw up at the simulation, so that you can nail it during the real interview. In our experience, you are ready after two to three interview simulations. In the words of a client, „What I appreciate the most, is her help preparing me for interviews. Thanks to that the recruitment process does not end after the first meeting. I’m aware enough to pick up on signals I did not see before and can react accordingly.”

Step 7: Support

Changing your job is never simply adding a new company onto your CV, especially if you have worked for your employer for a long time. We are here to answer all your questions, dissolve your doubts and turn your fears into self-confidence. We hold your hand. We remind you of why you wanted to change your job in the first place. We are what you need when you need it.
