Four tips that make the headhunter call you
Headhunters are the almost mythical characters who have chosen you for the vacant top job. Or what? Not quite. Perhaps your strong profile and merits have made your profile interesting on Google and LinkedIn, and maybe you sparkle in our CV database. But how do you even make sure that we are going to call you? What do you say when we call? And what can you use in the long run? I have collected 4 tips that will dress you up before, during and after the headhunter’s call and tell a little about how we can help each other. One service is usually worth the other.
Headhunters are not just a voice at the other end of the phone. We are effective partners who can boost your career both in the short and long term – if you help us too. For example, you can generate and qualify leads for our business and thus make us better. In other words, we need each other, and that also counts, even though we may have to offer the specific job to another candidate. If you consider our interest in you as the start of a collaboration that can last for many years, then you have already come a long way. The interaction and the initial conversation are of course crucial for whether it is you, we and the company ultimately aim for. But it also sets the stage for future cooperation, which should be between us as headhunters and you as a candidate. It is about being prepared and knowing the conditions and perspectives. So here are 4 good tips that give you a head start already before the phone rings.
