The next time you receive a phone call from a recruiter, do yourself a favor and listen.
Even if you have not been thinking about making a job change.
Because most of us that are employed should be keeping our eyes and open for good opportunities. When opportunity knocks, shouldn’t you at least….listen?

Many employers live with a problem employee far longer than they in fact need to. The reason may be fear. Fear of being sued, fear of confrontation, fear that the employee may know too much confidential company information, fear of not being able to replace the skill set that this person may have. Fear can be a huge stumbling block to progress.
Ask for what you truly want. What legitimate risk do you take when you communicate your need? When you ask for what you need. Maybe you will hear “no”, but you’ll never hear YES unless you ask. Is hearing NO a failure? Maybe hearing “no” just means that we have to strengthen our resolve to one day hear YES. But why not ask?
2. Believe that you are deserving of what you want. The mind is a powerful tool but sometimes we allow our minds to talk us out of what we want or need. Maybe we can use our mind to talk us into what we need or want?
As a recruiter, sometimes when a candidate is rejected from a job consideration, I am asked- “what could I done differently?”
My response is always NOTHING. Don’t we all want to be accepted for who we are? You can not fake who you are and why would you want to?
Time kills all deals. When too much time goes by during the interview process, anything can happen to wain the candidate’s interest. In addition waiting too long implies disinterest to most candidates. This is not to imply that employers need to make rash decisions, but the process should take no less than 10 days from the first interview to offer.
