If your job search includes working with a recruiter, make sure you know the rules of the relationship. You cannot just turn your career growth over to them and sit back and wait. A recruiter is a great resource, but they don’t work for you. They receive a hefty commission from the company when they fill a position. So if you are an outstanding global contract manager and they have a job order for a manager of air traffic control guess where they are going to put their efforts. Never stop pursuing your own career path. No one is as devoted as you are.
