Feeling Lost? Learn How to Navigate Executive Search and Gain Access the Hidden Jobs Market

Reports have confirmed that 86% of employees, including senior-level executives, are actively planning to search for new positions in 2014. With so many people forecasted for a career transition this year, it has never been more important to connect with an executive search consultant who can give you the edge you need in this competitive job environment.

Networking with executive recruiters has always been an important part of any executive job search. Understandably, many job opportunities, especially those at executive level, are not publically advertised; their companies preferring the privacy and efficiency of using executive search professionals to fill their roles. Therefore, by working with executive search consultants, who give access to the hidden jobs market, you can maximize your available career opportunities.

You have probably heard about a colleague or associate who has worked with an executive search consultant in the past to secure a great new position, but it’s often difficult to know where to start.
