You have been working in the same business environment for several years? Your dream job just popped-up? or you have the feeling that it is time to say goodie to your employer? As soon as you have the wish to change, you will be confronted with this huge task list: application package, career goals, job search strategy... And this may refrain you from really starting your search. Anticipate this situation and be ready to start your search.
The most appropriate approach about your professional situation and your potential job search? Get the assistance of someone you can trust, who knows your industry, who has a bigger picture of your business environment. Why not a former colleague or manager?
The other option is to connect and keep in touch with one or two recruitment consultants throughout your entire career. They connect with potential employers and actively looking candidates on a daily basis. These recruitment professionals have to deal with complex job search situation several times a month. They learn from each case and have a clearer idea about general dynamic on the labor market.
