5 Reasons Why Headhunters Are Career Mentors

It’s tempting to throw around the trendiest buzzwords: The “war for talent” is being waged everywhere, and the “skills shortage” sends a cold shiver down the spine of every company looking to fill an open position. But what does this all mean? Simple. The birthrate in Germany has been decreasing for years. Specifically in STEM sector companies, the lack of talented candidates is becoming increasingly evident. For this reason, it’s becoming more and more necessary to enlist the help of a headhunter, who can function as an intermediary between qualified candidates and companies.

She’ll help to explain how a headhunter can help you find your next senior position – and why headhunters are career mentors.

Now, he runs his own company, based in the UK, where he specializes in C-Level senior placements. And with over 20 years of business experience, it seems as though his “maverick methods” are working.

There’s no university or program that prepares someone to become a headhunter,” says Julian von Blücher, CEO and founder of headhunting firm Talent Tree GmbH, headquartered in Munich. It’s true – though headhunting is now considered to be the most effective method of matching candidates with companies, there’s no training or education process that can teach someone how to become a headhunter. Rather, these scouts are individuals with innate matchmaking skills, professionals who have the determination and the right sense to find the perfect fit for a client.
