Employed but Selectively Looking?

This page is for you if you are:

  • Opportunistic – ready to explore if someone calls
  • Seeking  a more challenging position
  • Seeking an opportunity for advancement
  • Seeking higher pay for your experience and skills
  • Seeking a better company and work environment
  • Casually looking while employed and submitting some resumes
  • Planning to make a move or committed to do so in 2013,
  • Would like to be prepared to begin looking for opportunities
  • Have a date in mind when you would like to change jobs
  • Your job or company is at risk and haven’t put together a plan “B”
  •  Positioning yourself for the right opportunity

I am Employed and am Open to or Selectively Looking for an opportunity. 

My challenges are:


  • How do I know what are my best career options? I don't need a job, I want an opportunity!
  • How do I assess my skills and marketability relative to my 5 year plan?
  • How do I save time in identifying “what I don't know?”
  • How do I build connections and relationships fast?
  • Maybe I should take some time to explore unknown or new ideas.
  • How do I know that this next position is truly a good career move?
  • I want this move to “fast-track” my marketability.
  • I’m missing job satisfaction or career growth.
  • I have probably been with this company too long.  I need to address this soon.
  • The integrity, the culture or the environment is not for me.

Personal Branding

  • I want to improve my personal brand so that “opportunities” come to me.
  • Is my resume selling me in or out?
  • How do I identify and reach the targeted companies and contacts?
  • How do I position myself for opportunities in the unpublished job market?
  • How do I become a recognized subject matter expert?
  • I want to change industries.
  • I’m on the slow track not the fast track.

Proactive Positioning

  • It's more important to secure the right opportunity than the time it takes to find it.
  • How do I identify the best targets in  industry and product
  • How do I execute an exploratory meeting effectively?
  • How do I get an outstanding offer?
  • How do I build my network in advance of my move?
  • I am pigeon-holed where I work. How can I make sure I make a good move?
  • I want something exciting and new, I am not challenged.
  • The job is too demanding for my personal life and I would like more balance.
  • I’m in the right position but in the wrong company.
