In the December 21, 2010 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter, a reader asks for ATH in a nutshell:
Can you please summarize the Ask The Headhunter strategy and explain the main differences between ATH and the traditional approach to job hunting? Thanks.
Normally, I publish only a short excerpt of the newsletter here on the blog. But this is the last newsletter of 2010, and it’s a summary of some of the main ideas of Ask The Headhunter. I’m posting the entire December 21, 2010 newsletter online: Click here for the full edition of Ask The Headhunter in a Nutshell.
The 4 “nutshell” tips are:
1. The best way to find a good job opportunity is to go hang out with people who do the work you want to do.
2. The best way to get a job interview is to be referred by someone the manager trusts.
3. The best way to do well in an interview is to walk in and demonstrate to the manager how you will do the job profitably for him and for you.
4. The best way to get a headhunter’s help is to manage your interaction for mutual profit from the start.
For the details behind each tip, please see the newsletter… And as always, please post your comments here on the blog!
