This week, I assisted my client to hire a Senior Recruiter and a Principal Electrical Engineer P.E. Why am I leading this blog with that statement?

There are three important reasons:

  1. I am actively recruiting for clients; therefore my blogs are YOUR opportunity to see behind the curtain of corporate recruiting.
  2. My messages increase your skills in your search for a new position.
  3.  As an expert Recruiter, I inform you of how Your actions impact your search.

Your Job Search Mirrors The Sales Process PERFECTLY

Most professionals are not aware their Career Search is a SALES Process – nor do they want to hear that fact. The professionals who embrace the job search as a Sales Process find their new position quicker than those who post their resume to endless Internet job postings.

Both of the professionals who accepted our offers this week networked their way to interviews.

If you are in a career search, how is your responsiveness judged by the recruiter and the managers? Think of recruiters like a bee that is gathering pollen for their hive, flying from one flower to another. The hives are their open positions and the candidates are the flowers. If a candidate is not responsive, they fly to the next person who is responsive.

This week, two of the candidates for the Senior Recruiter position (Of ALL positions!) were not responsive enough – and lost the opportunity to interview for a position. Once a company is prepared to interview candidates for a position, they are ready to Buy NOW!

The other 3 candidates responded quickly and we interviewed them onsite in 2 days. The Manager made the hiring decision after the second interview yesterday (Friday). We extended the offer at 4:59 PM and the candidate accepted at 5:03 PM.

What Is Your Message If You Are NOT Responsive?

I understand that candidates have lives and many are working elsewhere. If you do not take a few minutes to respond promptly, the message you send to the recruiter and hiring manager is “I am not really interested in this position.” It may be true or it may not, either way, as a Recruiter I am moving on that quickly.

Like you, recruiters and managers are working under deadlines. Respond quickly when contacted about a new position. This practice will increase your odds of finding your dream job!

Networking is the best practice to find a new career!  I wrote my books to duplicate my efforts to assist you in your search. My expert experience as both a Recruiter and Career Coach gives me a perspective few professionals have. My Salary Negotiation script solves that pain point for most career seekers. To accelerate your #Jobsearch, please immediately click on this link to my recent book, Employee 5.0: Secrets Of A Successful Job Search In The New World Orderhttp://amzn.to/2D9w39f  My book contains the 12 Steps to find a new career in a nice, orderly fashion that follows your sales process.  According to a newspaper review, “It is refreshing to find an author who speaks With you and not At you!” It also has the stories of people who did well – and some who did not. You may learn from both sides.

If you feel the need for professional Career Coaching, my business has 3 different packages. I work closely with Professionals in all three packages. The primary difference is the time and personal requirements.

  1. The first package is the 2 meetings Introductory Package.  The 2 meetings cover the basics of a Career Search.
  2. The second package is the 6 month Gold Package. This package provides you with Career Search guidance and Career Coaching for your first months in your new position.
  3. The third package is the Titanium package. Call me for details on this package because it is tailored specifically for the individual.

My Talent Attraction business model is to work with one company at a time and charge a flat monthly fee.  This enables me to become part of a company’s team for short or long periods.  Therefore, I know what is going on behind the curtain that candidates and authors outside of my field cannot see.

I am here to help you further each week.  Feel free to click on Follow US and Share at the bottom of our blog.

See you on Fridays!
