How to work with headhunters

| 1 Comment

I’m a fan of Nick Corcodilos. His book Ask The Headhunter was one of my inspirations to write Land The Tech Job You Love. His thoughts on why you should refuse to reveal your salary history are inspiring, and underscore the importance of keeping the relationship with a potential employer equal to both parties.

When Nick asked if I’d review his draft of his new book How to Work With Headhunters, I jumped. No surprise, it’s a great book, and I recommend it. It’s a straightforward, no-BS guide to how to get the most out of the relationship with a headhunter, which can be tricky. The job seeker is at a disadvantage because she only seeks a new job every few years, so this relationship can be hard to manage. Most importantly, Nick spells out what headhunters do and don’t do, so you understand your role. He also explains how to tell if a headhunter is a pro or a waste of your time.

The ebook is on sale at asktheheadhunter.com, and you can get $10 off with the discount code “tenoffblog”. Tell the Headhunter that The Working Geek sent you.

  1. I’ve just read the “Why you should refuse to reveal your salary history” article and must say I’m shocked. I haven’t heared about an employer in Europe (and definitely none here in Poland) demanding a salary history. Is it really a common thing in USA?
    I know that if someone would just hint of asking me about my salary history I would stand up and leave the interview.
