BlueSteps recently hosted an #ExecCareer Chat on the topic of networking with executive recruiters, featuring Lucie Shaw, Amrop UK, and Chris Swan, TRANSEARCH.

Some of the questions asked included:

  • In general, who are the executive professionals that executive recruiters network with?
  • In this era of globalization, how open are companies to hiring professionals from other countries or locations?
  • How do recruiters balance education and experience in searches?
  • If there's no search to offer the recruiter, no current desire to change, what help do the recruiters need?
  • For senior executives searching a new role, is it better to focus on very few options or caring for the quantiy/statistics rule?
  • Is one of the preferred ways to start networking with executive recruiters via our peers vs. trying directly?

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