1、 The Importance of Deepening Professional Cultivation
Will executives feel confident in entrusting their very important career to unprofessional and unreliable headhunters? Or is it a headhunter novice? Executives are not stepping stones on the growth path of headhunters. Professional knowledge is an important weapon in the headhunting arsenal. Headhunters need to have a deep understanding of the industry and position. If a headhunter asks three questions without knowing where the position is, where the opportunities are, where the pitfalls are, and the weight of KPIs, then their value in the eyes of executives will be greatly reduced, and they will feel unreliable and directly pass by the high-end.
2、 The prudence of executives in job hopping
Secondly, executives will be very cautious when changing jobs, as they are well aware that this job change will have a significant impact on their own careers. In addition, their own career roles are important and have a significant impact on existing and future companies. During this process, headhunters must possess excellent insight and emotional intelligence to overcome the unfamiliarity between both parties, bring them closer, and establish a deep trust relationship with executives in a short period of time. They must understand the true needs of executives and also take into account their concerns, such as concerns that the new company has not yet started interviewing or that the current company may not be conducive to the current workplace environment for executives when they hear about job hopping.
3、 The necessity of sincere service
From the perspective of executives, what aspects do executives pay attention to when considering issues? Headhunters should consider the career development and stability of executives, whether they need to further challenge themselves, settlement plans, family factors, and professional services. In addition, they should also focus on sincerity! Headhunters should not only focus on headhunting service fees and commission performance, but also be more responsible to executives, even considering themselves more than the executives themselves. Executives are often more willing to engage with such headhunters.
4、 Integrator of important resources
The headhunters who excel in executive positions often have access to certain important resources. Headhunters are industry resource integrators who may have access to upstream and downstream resources. They have connections with senior executives in the industry, long-term cooperation and trust within clients, as well as the reputation and exceptional abilities of the headhunters themselves.
5、 Maintaining customer relationships
Headhunting consultants should not only contact clients when there is a job demand, but should also maintain relationships on a regular basis. They should interact more with recruitment needs, the company's talent organizational structure, and the dynamics of the talent market, and focus on long-term cooperative relationships rather than just short-term benefits. High quality customer relationships have a positive promoting effect on large executive orders.
