EMPLOYERS AND EXECUTIVE RECRUITER STRATEGIES
Employers and executive recruiters aggressively search for top performers. They are not likely to post senior- level positions on job boards because they don’t want to be overwhelmed with hundreds of unqualified candidates. Their strategy is to network and ask for referrals so they can make direct contact with a prospective candidate. By the time the potential candidate has been contacted, they may be pre-qualified to move forward in the recruitment process based upon the comments and insights of the referral.
This means that the prospective candidate must be prepared for that call and feel proud to have been considered. However, it also means the candidate must have an updated resume and a clear vision of their career goals so the journey they are about to begin is a rewarding one.
There is a War for Top Performing Talent going on in the job market. High-performance individuals who have a track record for adding value to their organization are recognized as professional leaders. They are sought by employers and executive recruiters. Their resumes are not placed on job boards. So, if you are serious about winning in the job market, call us today to discuss the best strategies to move you ahead on your career path.
An employer's priorities are their mission, market leadership, employee talent pool, resources and their bottom-line revenues. According to a yearlong study by McKinsey & Co. involving 77 companies and almost 600 executives, there is a War for Talent underway.
This War for Talent is based on: a retiring baby-boomer workforce; increased international competition; a smaller 25 to 35-year old work force; a larger unqualified candidate pool; a highly mobile workforce; a tight labor market; organizational downsizing. As such, talented professionals are heavily recruited and others are left on the sidelines.
Given this War for Talent, professionals who want to advance in their career must design a career plan. They must be the architect of their destiny. To compete in this job market, you must decide whether you want to be the master of your own destiny or a victim of circumstances. The list below contains just a few of your options.
