3) Targeted use of executive recruiters
The best resource for a complete listing of executive recruiters can be found in the following book:

Directory of Executive and Professional Recruiters (2009-2010 Edition).

Remember, when working with any recruiter you want to control where your resume goes. Let them know that they are not to share your resume with any company unless they have discussed the company and opportunity with you first.


The publisher also provides this directory in an on line version that you can download for easy integration with MS Outlook or MS Word for your communication campaign efforts.

Kennedy Info


Another great resource for anyone in a career transition is the following website:


http://www.rileyguide.com Great job hunting resource site


We also wanted to call your attention to a tremendous resource that all professionals should be evaluating as part of their ongoing career management. Quite frankly, it is our belief that every professional who earns more than $80K should assess the potential benefits of Linkedin . www.Linkedin.com



Linkedin is not a job board, even though many recruiters use it to find candidates. It is, however, a way to build and manage an online network of professional colleagues that you can leverage and network with throughout your entire career. As a result of the network that we have built-up over the past five years, we now have access to over 20 million contacts on Linkedin! Just think how powerful that could be in your current or next job search.


After you sign onto Linkedin please feel free to look up my profile and send me a connection invitation so that you can leverage my extensive network ( linkedin@AveryPointGroup.com ). You should do the same with other “open networkers” – this is the quickest way to build your contacts.


Once you have set-up your account on Linkedin you can join, along with thousands of other networkers from around the world, one or all of the following Linkedin networking groups we sponsor:


Global Lean and Six Sigma Network
http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/67862


Lean Value Stream Leadership Forum
http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/79593


Global Green Lean Sigma Network
