  Hi, I'm Nick Corcodilos, creator and author of Ask The Headhunter. I'd like to show you what
Ask The Headhunter is and how you can use it to engage your audience.
  
  

HISTORY
I started headhunting in Silicon Valley in 1979 and wrote the first edition of Ask The Headhunter: Reinventing the interview to win the job in 1995 to teach job hunters and employers how to win and fill jobs like a headhunter. I was keenly aware that conventional career advice was worse than wrong -- it was senseless. So I put myself on the line -- online -- with a discussion board where I offered readers free one-on-one advice about job hunting and hiring, and I promised to answer every question posted.

I've personally written responses to over 30,000 questions on the ATH board. The board quickly developed into the Ask The Headhunter web site, filled with articles and tips about job hunting from the headhunter's perspective. Soon, other publishers were licensing ATH features, and today publishing is a significant part of my headhunting and consulting business, North Bridge Group, Inc.

With three new books published since 2009, How Can I Change Careers?, Keep Your Salary Under Wraps, and How to Work with Headhunters, Ask The Headhunter continues to grow as a brand and as a respected source of contrarian advice for job hunters and employers alike. I hear from readers daily -- from the U.S., Australia, India, China, Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and around the world.

"Nick Corcodilos is the brutally honest, forthright and insightful headhunter who serves up tough love to job seekers while taking job boards and others to the woodshed."
