About this MasterClass
Did you know that a huge number of senior and specialist roles are not directly advertised?
Once a job is online, it can attract 250 or more applications. But at this level, the ratio of qualified candidates actually plummets, despite the interest. So companies often turn to headhunters, who are like Sherlock Holmes when it comes to finding elusive talent. By leveraging their industry expertise, extensive network, and ability to track down high-level candidates, headhunters can be far more effective than advertising. As a senior-level candidate, headhunters are an exclusive gateway to your dream job.
In this MasterClass, I’ll guide you through everything you need to know about working with headhunters to find your next senior-level position. We’ll delve into the whos, whys, and whats of headhunters, how to identify and vet the right headhunter, and how to make yourself as attractive as possible so that they’ll be begging to represent you!

To be honest, I was always confused about the difference between recruiters and headhunters. I wasn’t aware of how useful headhunters could be to someone like me. This masterclass gave me great insight into what headhunters can do for me. I appreciated the detailed information about where to find headhunters, what they’re looking for, and how to make my CV and LinkedIn more appealing to them. The downloadable spreadsheet has made keeping track of my interactions with headhunters a breeze. I would be happy to recommend this course to anyone interested in working with headhunters for their job search.

I hadn’t thought about headhunters until I saw this masterclass on my JobLeads dashboard. I clicked on it straight away and watched the entire course in one session. The presenter spoke clearly and didn’t use complicated language. I liked the visuals and music. The masterclass inspired me to begin contacting headhunters. I’m already in contact with several. Thanks, JobLeads!

The masterclass was excellent. I often get approached by headhunters and recruiters on LinkedIn. In the past I ignored them because I thought they were spamming me. Now I understand better how they work. I’ve just begun looking for a new job, so I’m researching and reaching out to headhunters who contact me instead of ignoring them. I’ve also been using JobLeads to find headhunters in my area. I will go back and watch some of the lessons again when I’m ready to screen some.
