Visit industry events, especially if they are online, and search for opportunity to participate as a speaker or panellist. Make contributions to industry sources such as websites. Make absolutely sure your LinkedIn profile is updated, and put your job seeking position in it using the new readily useable framework.Executive search companies have a tendency to specialise. Some of the larger ones may have multiple industries covered. Others concentrate their efforts more broadly, or on a certain sector or a specific job skill. There’s no use in wasting your own time on a company that just doesn’t hire in your industry that may have less contacts there than you do. Boutique businesses specialised in certain sectors are becoming more frequent, and they may potentially compete with the bigger corporations for employment in such fields.
