As a coach and recruiter I have acted as Career Cupid to many professionals and of course, Hiring Leaders looking to find their next great hire;
While some of the professionals are actively seeking their next role (active job seekers), many others I connect with from a recruitment standpoint, are not even thinking about making a move (passive job seekers) ...until that perfect opportunity landed in their lap! I get giddy even thinking about those conversations; the excitement expressed when hearing about a role, team, hiring manager, and organization that seems to be tailor-made just for them!
As Valentine's day approaches I want to share how you too can enlist and leverage Career Cupids to help you land your next position or better still have it find you and from a Hiring Leaders perspective, how to find your NEXT GREAT HIRE.
There are FOUR types of career cupids that can help you move your career to the next level:
Career Cupid # 1) A ‘great’ recruiter - (More often than not, they’ll find you if your LinkedIn profile is optimized and searchable).
Alternatively, if you are a Hiring Leader, you should also have a Recruitment-Cupid, i.e., a reputable search firm and partner, that you know you can turn to as you look to fill critical roles in your organization. Connect with me to learn more about how Treasure Search Partners can help you build a top-notch team TODAY.
For job seekers here are some Tips on how to figure out if your recruiter is going to be a good partner?
When you are approached by a Recruiter, warning signs that they may not be a great partner or advocate:
If presented with an opportunity, the role should have clear alignment with your experience from a functional standpoint, industry and even environment.
Positive signs that will indicate they will be a great partner:
Career Cupid #2) A career coach - (Provides the direction, insights, tools and even a 'kick in the pants' if needed to get you on the path to success.)
This may include:
A career coach will help you position yourself and your experience, so it aligns to the roles you are interested and qualified for, and better still can show you how to have relevant job leads come to your door!
Career Cupid #3) Your Network – (Lots of lots of potential career cupids to leverage, IF they know and can articulate the value you can offer to others in their organization or team).
Tips to help your network cupid be successful:
Career Cupid #4) YOU - The very best investment you can make in your career is in yourself.
So, whether its time, money, energy or all three, you deserve the opportunity to find your dream job in 2019. Invest in yourself, your career, your success, and happiness!
