How to deal with head-hunters…

 
#1 How to deal with head-hunters…

Greetings all.

Perhaps a lame question, but the situation is new to me so I thought I’d ask for some advice. I was contacted via email today by a ‘search boutique’ concerning an opportunity I might be interested in (they didn’t say what it was) and they are interested in opening a dialog. I’ve been keeping an eye on the job market for a while, so I’m interested in what they have to say but I’m not sure about the etiquette of talking to these people, since I don’t know if these things are legitimate or if they’re just trying to expand their contact database. Does anyone have any pearls of wisdom they’d like to share?

Cheers,

DD

Fair question I think. No harm in talking to them. Most decent ones will give you more details over the phone and then you can decide whether you're interested. If you're interested send them a CV and meet with them to discuss further. If you're still interested then let them represent you for the role. Simples.

If they're pushing to submit you for a role and won't tell you who it is then that would be suspicious, but for first contact it's reasonable.

Incidentally if they're a search boutique then they won't be so easy to find out much about. If you google them and they have a loads of ads posted for roles in your area then they're not really a search boutique and either being misleading or pretentious.

Many thanks for your response.

Their website doesn’t look dodgy and isn’t full of adverts – most of the information is about the firm and well presented…for management speak ;)

I’ll email them back – I guess there’s not harm in it. Thanks again!
