Asking for advice – There is an art in asking for advice and maybe these tips will help.

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.

Unbridgeable Gaps?

Executive Recruiters -  The Ankenbrandt Group, Newport Beach, CAThe same conversation keeps on repeatedly happening with my clients – lack of talent to hire. They can’t find good, young, talented people who want to work hard and have the communication skills to work.  There is a gap in the market. It might be the entitlement that kids felt growing up wealthier before the recession/depression hit? Maybe they’re thinking they don’t need to work hard, or maybe these workers have a different spin on what work looks like?  They also have huge.

My advice to anyone young and looking for a job:

  1. You will work hard with long days and late nights before you earn those six-figure salaries.
  2. Probably start working in a job that is lower than you originally expected. Learn from it.
  3. Try to use complete sentences when communicating – the texting should stop when you put your cell phone down.
  4. Find a mentor at work to help you understand the corporate culture and how to succeed.
