Making a human connection.
With so many job search-oriented websites out there today, it’s easy to feel like the human element is missing from “human resources.”
At Management Search, we want to make a human connection with every candidate and client we meet, so that the connection we create can be as positive and successful as possible. With us, you will make a very real human connection. We start the process by listening to you, in order to understand the best way we can help you win the job you desire.
We’d like to get to know you.
If you are an active job seeker and you want us to best understand your unique situation, please take a moment to reflect and share your thoughts on the following questions. Chances are, you will also crystallize your thinking as you consider these questions.
We hope you will feel free to share anything you wish about what you want from a job—and what you bring to the table for a prospective employer. Our job is to help you get there.
- What do you want in any job, career or company?
- What will turn you on, excite you, make you feel good about a position or a company—its location, team, culture, salary, or is it something else?
- Conversely, what don’t you want in any job, career or company? What will turn you off, demotivate and disinterest you? (Often this list extends beyond the obvious opposites of the “positives”.)
- What do you bring to the party? What business and personal skills/contacts and strengths do you possess which make you valuable to any company? We may want to detail this for specific jobs/companies.
- What do you want “more of” in your next position? This could be Job content, skill building, reporting relationships, contact with others inside or outside your organization, percent of travel, etc.
- What do you like about your present job/company?
- Just as there are no “perfect” people in the world, there are no “perfect” companies. If you had a “magic wand” and could change anything you wished about your present job and company, what would that be? (Some people put lots of weight upon lessons and feelings from their past jobs.)
- What did you like about your past jobs/companies?
- Again, what would you have changed about your past companies/jobs? Perhaps a change which could have had you decide to remain there
- Finally, what are your future career goals? In terms of function, title, responsibility, breadth and depth and scope of focus, etc.?
- If we were having a career conversation 3-5 years in the future, what has to have happened to make you satisfied with your career progress and development?
Take some time to think these over, and send us an email with your answers and a copy of your most current resume. Hopefully this will be the start of a conversation that will lead to some great connections!
