I must admit that after listening to youir series on Executive Recruiters I realize that I have done a poor job of building these relationships (or handling the calls for that matter!)
[Turning over a new leaf]
Would it be appropriate to initiate contact with a recruiter that works in my space (marketing) in order to begin building the described relationship? Or do I need to wait for the hoped for call?
If contact is okay - is there a preferred form?
Would it be better to try to network through functional groups (local Marketing Association for example)? Wouldn't that tend to come across as "I am actively looking"?
As always your thoughts are much appreciated and helpful.
