Disruptive change has prompted many employees to reflect on their careers. As skills sets become scarcer in certain professions and sectors, individuals with particularly hard to find skills sets are increasingly in demand. Faced with increased probability of getting a call from a head-hunter/recruiter, here are three questions you need to ask yourself before considering a potential career move.
- Will the opportunity offered, improve my quality of life?
- If I chose to stay in my current role, what is the next step for me with my current employer?
- What isn’t working for me in my current role?
- Will the proposed role add value to my career in the long run?
Focusing your discussion on the above four questions will ensure that you cover the critical aspects with the head-hunter/recruiter. By doing this, you will keep the conversation flowing and allow yourself to make an informed decision about whether or not to progress discussions to the next level.
