Has this ever happened to you? You’re at your desk at work and the phone rings. You pick up and on the other end is a recruiter – more specifically, a headhunter.
They tell you about a great job they’re trying to fill, and then ask you if you know anyone who would be a good fit for the role. You feel like a deer in headlights. You’re at work, and you aren’t even sure what they’re asking.
Check out my tips on what to say if this happens to you, and what a headhunter really means when they ask, “Do you know someone who would be a good fit for this great job?”
I’d love to hear from you – has a headhunter called you before to see if you “knew someone” who was interested in a job? What did you do? E-mail me at Angela(at)CopelandCoaching(dot)com.
