    Ever been head hunted?

    Just had a very strange phone call...

    Anyone ever been headhunted? All new to me, although the strangest thing is I was only speaking about the company that I have been contacted by this very morning

    I imagine most people that have been headhunted are in contracting roles etc? Tolley etc?

    Not familiar with the processes and tactics, so playing it all by ear at the minute.

    Could be interesting.

    I was by AT&T a few years ago, very strange feeling when it happens, but reassuringly nice!

    Early days yet...although I would be foolish not to learn more about the proposed position. CV will be sent along with a more indepth conversation at some point.

    I have to be clear about it all, and longevity too.

    Same industry im in now - just with a big competitor. The attractive thing for someone like me who loves cars, is that they are owned by BMW, which means tidy company cars.

    Anyway -early days

    I remember when you were there dude. Mine wont be £350 a day, as its not contracting, its permanent...although the basic will be very tidy.

    Wont hurt to dip my toe to test the water so to speak.

    it's regular thing in construction industry, competitors are always looking for new staff as the companies are expanding. people where i work, inlcuding me get phone calls from agencies on regular basis. becomes a bit anoying after a while. but if your not happy where you work i suppose it could be the phone call you've been waiting for. always gives you something to think about anyways, in your case it obviously has.....

    as craig says, just make sure its for you and weigh all the other aspects of it up, i didnt stay at AT&T, but it acted as a very good stepping stone to getting to where I wanted to be
