Haven’t received any outreach from several headhunters despite having filled out the candidate registration forms on their websites (second year consultant). Anything I can do? Or are they not interested?

I had a call with a headhunter where they told me I was a top applicant for a role and then got completely ghosted


Lots of orgs shut down recruiting during mid/late December. January is probably a much better time to search.


Which websites


Are you a NA BA? If your peers have been getting emails and you haven’t, ask them to forward to you and then you email the HH’s back. I think at this point you should have gotten outreach to do intros with the HH but no actual “on cycle” recruiting for first years yet


Head Hunters will offer you the world and pull the rug out from under you. Don’t trust them anymore than you’d trust a used car salesman.


From experience, the grass always seems greener. Everything happens for a reason, you don’t see it now. Chin up, head down, and grind


You should email headhunters too to set up calls with them
