Are you happily employed and not concerned about your next career step? It’s still a good time to have a 5-minute conversation with a local recruiter who specializes in your industry.
You’re certain that the next career step is right in front of you at your current company… but how long will that be? And what if your employer doesn’t feel the same way?
A 5-minute conversation does not mean you are being disloyal to your current employer. It’s always good to know what options are available, and a 5-minute conversation does not mean we’re “getting married”.
A 5-minute conversation with a local recruiting professional specializing in your profession, e.g. finance and accounting in North Atlanta, means you have:
• someone who understands your career goals,
• someone who knows your objectives,
• someone who knows what jobs you might want to know about.
The process of selling a house is a good comparison. If you were planning to sell your house, you wouldn’t wait to research the market for new houses until your current house is sold. Planning and a well thought out decision include knowing the market for new houses in addition to knowing the value of your current house. You could do this on your own, but most of us have a friend who is a realtor to gather the information more efficiently (and more completely).
If you’re thinking 5 minutes isn’t enough for someone to know all your hopes and dreams, you’re right. It’s just a starting point, a chance to add a career advisor to your corner to help you plan and to help you accomplish your career goals. But these relationships don’t just happen at your time of need. It starts with taking a break to have a 5-minute conversation.
