Every year several hundred experienced managers and executives mainly from across Europe get in touch with us to confidentially discuss their career strategy and job search. After an initial consultation or when working with us, they learn that a job seeker should – on average – contact and follow up with:
- 30 Executive Search Consultants (per country that they are actively interested in moving to)
- 60-90 decision makers in selected companies (sometimes alternative people need to be contacted)
See the full statistics in our Job Hunting Report for 2018.
When don’t rely solely on our HR / recruitment experience that everyone of us has accumulated over their careers which for some of us is 15 or more years. What worked 17, 9 or even 5 years ago, will very likely not work anymore. Because the market is VUCA – it changes very quickly. We collect data on our own. Thanks to i) us handling the entire job hunting-related correspondence of selected clients and ii) clients voluntarily sharing all of their meticulously tracked job hunting statistics we analyzed:
For the last 5 years we’ve had a dozen or so expat spouses who inquired with Career Angels as to whether we could support them in their job search / career management. Only one decided to ultimately work with us – despite the fact that some of us, Career Angels, had experienced exactly that. We want to do a better job. And we want to do it properly. Looking for a job per se is already increasingly tricky – even more so for the +1s who join their partners on international assignments, especially, if the career break has been one of several years.
A little bit of data (if you’ve already bought into the idea of participating in a research project in Warsaw, please skip through to the end):
Looking back at 2018, we definitely did not sit back & rest, we shared our knowledge with over 1300 (!) professionals from various industries, MBA students & graduates, (HR) professionals, experienced managers and executives across 43 lectures, webinars and workshops in Europe: Brussels, Vienna, Milan, Warsaw, Mannheim, and many more! It was a truly productive year and we can’t wait to do even more in 2019!
Here are some highlights:
About the initiative: we provide a safe space for experienced managers in Warsaw (to start with) who have accepted the challenge of looking for a job (actively or passively) so that they can exchange their experiences, support each other through listening, kind words or information and inspire each other.
