Good advice on LinkedIn from Fiona Cochran of Australian search firm Arete Executive. Fiona explains who so few executives are recruited via job boards and talks about the importance of networking.

Networking always makes sense but there are only so many hours on the day. 

Registering on GatedTalent is always free to the executive and gets you "on the radar" and in front of search firms from around the World.  It's a great way to be found and far more worthwhile than applying for specific positions!
