Executive Recruiters -  The Ankenbrandt Group, Newport Beach, CACall during normal business hours. Ask if it’s a good time to talk.

Once you’ve got my attention – LISTEN. Stop talking and start listening and write down the advice I’m giving. I can’t tell you how many people don’t take notes and then expect me to repeat myself again when they call back days later. There is nothing wrong with taking notes – take them!

Be humble, gracious, and polite.

If you don’t like the advice, don’t argue with me about it. You asked – I gave you my opinion. Take it and use it or don’t use it. Or just use what works for you – it’s your job search.

Don’t assume I’m a miracle worker – it’s you who must do the hard work finding a job. Most people don’t get placed by a recruiter -they have to find their own job.
