“Before you get on the phone with [the recruiter], think through your call, [the recruiter] may have specific job openings she’s trying to fill, or she may be adding to her candidate database right now in anticipation of new assignments she’s hoping to get. Think about what it would take for you to leave your current job. What do you need more of than you’re getting now? Maybe it’s a bigger assignment. Maybe you need more money. Maybe you want to work in a faster-paced firm or work more closely with clients. Think about everything you care about in a job, not just the title and the pay package. Think about how far you’re willing to commute to work, and how important flexibility and the ability to work from home are to you.”
