Recruitment & Social Networking Tools

WebMany studies are showing up these days on the internet (mostly regarding France, wonder why?), proving that the best tools for recruitment, both for candidates and recruiters, are ‘classic’ job-boards and ads, even spontaneous (but recommended) applications… They point out that tools like Linkedin are less useful.

It would be indeed stupid not to look at ads nor post your cv on dedicated websites if you want to change/find jobs. Let us just not forget that a job search is much more than that. This is too passive: some of us might do that forever and not get any results!

Nobody Said It Was Easy

chlopiecWhether you live and work in Poland or in Western Europe, if you are unemployed these days, you better start working hard on finding your next job. It does not matter that you are a Senior, experienced manager, it will take time, efforts and energy. The market is not in favor of candidates any more, I’m seeing it both in my outplacement and executive search activities.
You will have to launch in a structured, demanding and probably long networking campaign. The good news is that, since it is the only way to control the next step in your professional destiny, you can aim high.
The American author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it”. That is so very true.
