Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn Ferry, writes for Fast Company on the importance of being proactive with your career development. Lots of good advice within.
Gary explains that the "the resume is only 10% of it". Of course, for many of the most senior executives, the idea of writing a resume and pro-actively applying for positions is jarring. Senior level executives expect to be approached.
There is, however, a middle ground. Creating a profile on GatedTalent will allow you to be found by our executive recruiter clients from more than 20 countries. It's free and takes just a couple of minutes. You don't need your resume and you can maintain your privacy.
If you want to be proactive about your career, ensuring you are "on the radar" of as many search firms as possible is a great way to begin. Join us!
Complacency is a career killer that can strike at any level, stifling your growth and making you miserable, yet can prevent you from doing anything about it.
