Just starting to look for a new role. After 16 years in the Video Conferencing / Unified Communications industry, I’m looking for a change.

I have been out of the job hunt scene for years. Are there some reputable recruiters/agencies to give my resume to start the process? I just had my resume and LinkedIn professionally re-worked, as I have been in a stable job for 9+ years.

Any advice from recruiters would be great!

9+ years at someone else’s “stable” business. That some one else built that business on the side and grew it.

They say business is a lot riskier than real estate. I wouldn’t associate stable with business especially when you aren’t helming it. You’re heavily relying on someone else to dictate your future. Yeah not stable at all.

It’s great your resume is brushed off. The next thing judging by being out of the scene for 9 years would be to brush up on selling yourself (interview) and more importantly how to get leads to opportunities or in essence marketing yourself out there.

In the end it’s all sales and marketing that’ll get you in front of the right opportunities.

I would recommend posting this in the job referral bowl if I were you. Sometimes getting a referral can really help you get your foot in the door, especially when you have been applying and not hearing back.

If I had more of an idea on where I wanted to work, sure. I was hoping a recruiter/firm would be able to look at my resume and find something based on my skills/experience. I’m in a weird spot where I don’t quite know how my skills would transfer to a new opportunity. All I know is I am not quite happy anymore and would like a change. I did reach out via LinkedIn to an employee of a company I’d like to join someday. I did get a response, however no openings at the moment.

Since you have been out of the job market for a while, I would suggest that you start applying to any company. This will give you practice for your interviews. You don't want to be rusty when a good opportunity comes.
