How to Use Our Data

Do You Have Work Experience?

If you have experience in a particular field, you should contact recruiters in your field, not recruiters in your location. Most recruiters who specialize in an industry or position work nationally, not just locally. So for example, if you are looking for a manufacturing job, you want to contact recruiters who specialize in manufacturing regardless of location. The recruiter in New York may have a client in Florida who has a job that meets your qualifications.

If you are a senior executive or senior professional with experience in a particular industry, in addition to recruiters, you should contact venture capital and private equity firms in your field. These firms are investing in and re-organizing companies in your industry and could have the position you seek in one of their portfolio companies.

Are You Just Starting Your Career?

However, if you are just beginning your career or have less specialized experience, contacting recruiters in your location who specialize in your intended field is a good way to use our information.
