BlueSteps recently hosted an #ExecCareer Chat on the topic of Increasing Your Visibility to Executive Search Consultants, featuring Catherine Bell, from BluEra, Frank Therber, from Daubenspeck & Associates, LTD., and John Touey, from Salveson Stetson Group Inc.

Some of the questions asked included:

  • How often do you recommend refreshing your executive search network of your status while searching and out of work?
  • How does one get in front of, without being too pushy, firms that conduct C-Level searches?
  • How can I find the executive recruiters that specialize in a specific field (in my case CIO) to contact?
  • What do you recommend executives include in an email when it’s the first point of contact with the search consultant?
  • What are some common mistakes to avoid when networking with executive search professionals?
  • When should I begin networking with executive search consultants?

If you missed it, catch up on all the excellent advice that was given in the Storify transcript below.
