Like many professions, the executive recruitment industry has developed its own specializations and distinctions.

Article: How to Network with Headhunters & Executive Search Firms (Source: Harvard Business Review)

As you grow in your career, it’s important to grow your network with you. By the time they’re 45 or 50, most executives will benefit if they have positive relationships with two or three quality search consultants. While I encourage these relationships, I’m certainly not saying you should always be looking for a new job. That’s the path to failure. Most executives, however, will benefit if they occasionally are in touch with the market for people like them. At senior levels, search consultants are the closest thing to that kind of market. The right search consultant can be more than a source of job opportunities. He or she also can react to what you’re doing and provide detached but well-informed advice that may be hard to find anywhere else. Continue reading

Article: Overseas recruiting demand for Brazil a tough nut to crack (Source: Recruiter.co.uk)

Recruiters say they are yet to see significant pick-up of large-scale migration to talent-short Brazil from depressed markets such as Spain, where job opportunities are scarce. Robert Spuri, managing director for Latin America at talent and recruitment firm Futurestep, says: “Nowadays you have a lot of gaps in Brazil, but you also have problems in Spain, for example, or the US – Brazilian companies are starting to source people in Europe and the US.” But Spuri, speaking to Recruiter for the Global Spotlight piece coming up in next week’s June edition of the magazine, says the trend is still not that strong, with Brazil being a “very closed market, [but] now we are opening a little bit”.

The 2013 Executive Search Industry Outlook Report just released by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) shows that half of global executive search consultants hold a neutral outlook for the executive search business in 2013. The remaining 29% of search consultants feel optimistic, sharing a positive outlook, while the minority (22%), harbor a negative view for 2013.

Article: When to Use a Search Firm or Headhunter ? (Source: Alison Doyle)

When does it make sense to use a search firm or recruiter to assist with your job search?

If you seem to be stuck in a rut and you are not getting calls for interviews, it can make sense to use a recruiter to broaden your job search. It can also make sense if you are in a high level position since those jobs are not always advertised or in an industry that typically uses search firms to fill vacancies. Search firms have contacts in industries and at companies that you might not even be aware of. They can help market your resume and provide you with additional exposure to potential employers.

Tips for using a headhunter

Choosing to use a professional recruiter, or headhunter, in your job search is an individual decision and has become more and more common, particularly during a strong economy.  During an economic down cycle, attorneys should be more cautious when soliciting the help of a headhunter. When you are hired through a headhunter you come with a fee for the firm, one which firms may be less willing to pay during difficult economic times. 

With that being said, professional recruiters do maintain a vast network of contacts and may save the firm time in their job searching process; however using a recruiter is one resource in an effective job search. Be cautious to not rely too heavily on this one avenue at the risk of ignoring other successful job search strategies, such as networking. Continue reading
