How does Auto-Connect work?
When the Auto Connect feature is enabled, it keeps you connected to only the most relevant search firms. It prevents you from being connected to other less relevant firms that do not match your aspirations. If you wish to be connected to all firms or any search firm of your choosing, even if they may not be a good match for you, then you may wish to consider disabling this feature.
By disabling Auto Connect, you can then click on the Add Search Firm button. This will show you recommended firms by default, however you can search for other firms in the search bar and add them.
I haven't been contacted yet. What does that mean?
There could be a number of reasons why you are not being contacted:
Firstly, it pays to complete your profile 100%. The more information an executive search firm has about you, the more likely they are to contact you. Be proactive and keep your profile updated!
Secondly, most people, get one or two calls a year for a job that is really what they're looking for. By being a part of Not Actively Looking you can increase your visibility amongst great boutique search firms. You can also point out exactly what your circumstances are without having to share that information on a public platform.
Thirdly, have you given it enough time? You may be lucky and get a call quickly but chances are it will take time! Learn how the executive search process works and focus on cultivating as many relationships as possible.
