Why not only Hunter hunting instinct develop Bonn/Cologne the increasing shortage of skilled changed also the industry of the recruitment consultant. So far, it was common that a headhunter on the search himself, to his prey”to hunt. Today hunt hired headhunter, so the daily newspaper in the world. The trend is currently more and more go, that much promising Young Professionals themselves up at headhunters call and offer their expertise. A Manager in the early of 1990s had to earn at least 100,000 euros, to be at all interesting for headhunters. The reason is simple: until 1994, it was forbidden by law to look for employees at different hierarchical levels to recruitment consultants.
The mediation monopoly of the former Federal Labor Agency was which was relaxed now in the way. “Candidates with an annual earnings from 50,000 euro are meanwhile targeted the recruitment consultant, this applies particularly to industries with lack of professionals”, so the career part of the world. Human resources experts confirm this point of view. A candidate with an annual income of under 50,000 euros will sought in my experience sometimes. Here we must detach ourselves from old ideas. It is for example for a company – that searches only on traditional means of job advertisements etc.
– hard to find a good seller on the market. Of course earned the then usually not 80,000 or 100,000 euros a year, but can be still very valuable for the seeker company”, says Marc Emde, owner and partner of KCP executives. The recruiters from Cologne specializes in executive search/direct sourcing, interim management, Web-based personnel assessment, compensation consulting, personnel leasing and management consulting. Currently, especially sales and marketing professionals would be searched. And also the middle-class long put on the technical assistance by recruitment consultants. This is no more corporate domain”, said Edmonds. Young professionals and executives should not only in the hour of need to one Contact human resources consultant. You should contact to a headhunter, if one is in a safe position, but does want to take on new challenges in the near future. Why should you wait until a headhunter with a ringing?” Edmonds but discourages perfunctory inquiries. I recommend Young Professionals with a latent willingness to change, just to select a recruitment consultant. Which industries specializes in it? Where going myself? And that it works on its own digital reputation and using networks like XING is very important today. “People who want to make a career, must itself become a brand ‘ make and continuously work on own reputation.” Ansgar Lange
