Executive Job Hunting Skills UK

Welcome to our executive job hunting resources section covering different articles, scenarios and approaches helping executives secure next career move. It is necessary for executives to have a clearly defined, well-targeted and structured approach to executive job hunting to maximise chances of success. Many executives let themselves down because they do not focus on core job hunting activities likely to yield best results. For instance, LinkedIn can bring a different dimension to an executive job search, targeting the ‘hidden’ job market through networking (or existing contacts) and benefiting from extended recruitment networks of executive headhunters are often key elements. Fundamentally, it is best to have a balanced approach to executive job hunting using 3 or 4 main techniques, whilst avoiding a ‘scattergun’ approach which never produces effective results unless extremely lucky!
