Call Me, Maybe???

I was asked by our Editor, Jeff Wedge, to write an article in both English and in Russian. I struggled with identifying a topic for some time, as I wanted to choose something that would be interesting and informative in both languages. There are a lot of Russian professionals moving to Western countries, and sooner or later they have to start searching for a job. Many candidates complain that they never hear back from recruiters, and it is widely believed that the recruiters don’t even read the resumes they receive. I’ve also heard the opinion that recruiters are so dumb they do not even understand the roles they are working on, and they do not appreciate the superior qualifications of the candidates. That is definitely a case of wishful thinking. I have an example for you.

Наш главный редактор Джефф Уэдж попросил меня написать заметку по-английски и по-русски. Мне сложно было выбрать тему, на которую одинаково легко писать на обоих языках, и которая была бы интересна как русско-, так и англоязычным читателям.

Knowing When the Party is Over – Time to Change Jobs

By | April 29th, 2015|

Sometimes there are telltale signs that it is time to move on to greener pastures. As a Sourcing Specialist, I look at many profiles in a given day and decide to directly head-hunt that person…or not. What am I looking for? Well, longevity is admirable and shows commitment and loyalty. It can also be a double edged sword as well. I do raise an eyebrow when I see that someone has been with the same company for more than 10 years in the same role. I am not saying that it is a good thing to be a “job-jumper” either because that too raises a flag. If I see someone moving every two years and they are at the same level and not on contract, it is a concern however, if I see that they are moving up to bigger and better roles with more responsibility, I think that person is worth pursuing.
