How should you prepare before meeting a headhunter for the first time? And what are the key traits that make an individual stand out? Here are some common insights from us and our friends at notactivelylooking.com

Anthony Harling
Andrew, we’re talking about impressing the headhunter. You’ve met thousands of candidates over the years, I’m sure. I’m interested to know, what makes somebody stand out. What do you notice about the people that you meet? And what makes them special?

Andrew Kris
You’re meeting another person for a conversation when you meet a headhunter. Not an interrogation. So prepare for a conversation. I’m here to get to know you and work with you to help you get the best out of your career. However, my job is to make sure that my client meets the person needed right now for his business. So help me out. If you get in touch with us pro-actively, please do not send a generic, impersonal mail ‘to whom it may concern’, goes straight to the bin. It’s just not polite and shows a careless, unthinking approach. Please be specific, write directly to a consultant who is working in your area of expertise, you will will be more likely to get his or her attention.
