How to develop your career.

 Show Interest

A lesson from the Proteus Archives.

If you want to manage the next stage of your career development you are 10 times more likely to find the right next career move by creating it than by ploughing through the advertised market.

For Proteus clients from 2008 to 2017 inclusive, placements were achieved using the following methods:

Proteus Network of placed alumni = 8%:
Adverts in on line and printed media = 9%:
Head Hunters who don't advertise = 12%:
Direct Approaches, Networking and Referrals = 71%. 

So there you have it: 9% advertised, 91% not advertised.

Clearly, in the wake of the pandemic it is even more important to take this message on board when designing your self marketing strategy.
