Bookmark These: Sites to guide you through headhunting process

By Reid Kanaley




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | (MCT) In a tough job market you might need to find a headhunter who can peddle your skills to the highest bidder — or to any bidder. Here's how to find and deal with headhunters.

HEADHUNTER SECRETS:

A list of headhunter "secrets" at the Life Back West site shows how impersonal the process may be to have yourself shopped like a commodity to prospective employers by a middleman. But there are common-sense tips, too, such as reminders to be cordial on job interviews, even in rejection, because bad manners can be remembered for a long, long time. Then again, another item suggests that even your worst "blow up" in a previous job or interview isn't necessarily going to haunt you.

INTERVIEWING HEADHUNTERS:

At the Quintessential Careers site, this article proposes a hard look at the headhunter or recruiter that should be aimed at deciding if the two of you can develop a mutual trust, and at finding out if the headhunter has clout with clients.

GETTING HUNTED:

In "How to Get Yourself Head-Hunted," writer Julian Goldsmith at bnet.com says you'll need to court the headhunter — something that starts with a critical look at yourself and your resume. Rewrite it. Get your name and a decent photo onto the social networking sites. And get coaching for your interviewing technique, among other things.

HIRE THE HEADHUNTER:

The video here is part of a "job search and hiring" series at eHow. Kelly Kidd, a staffing industry specialist in Florida, explains that seeking out a headhunter's help should not happen until you've exhausted other job-hunting resources. Other videos in the series include those on how to counter a salary proposal, how to write a resume, networking tips, and — for employers — how to hire people into specific jobs, such as receptionist and graphic designer. Related articles explain how to contact a headhunter, or how to start a headhunter business.
