Who Are The Career Hunters?

The Career Hunters is the brainchild of two Headhunters who saw first-hand how most career advice given in a recession is useless, if not downright harmful.

Often-times, we would hear from Executives who were told that degrees and certifications mattered. …that years of experience mattered. …that a track record of success and glowing references mattered.

Yes, they matter in a booming economy, where executives could expect daily calls from recruiters, each with a new ‘can’t miss’ opportunity.

…but when those opportunities dry up, and those same recruiters stopped returning calls, oft-maligned career coaches came out of the woodwork.


The problem is the advice they give. It’s not bad advice per se, but advice on mindset, or how to navigate HR applicant tracking systems, or proper interview etiquette works wonderfully when recruiters are calling you daily with opportunities.

But when those opportunities dry up, you quickly learn that a great mindset doesn’t put food on the table.

Only RESULTS do, pure and simple.

One day during the re-opening of the US economy, David and Mitch (the two Headhunters behind this crazy venture), asked themselves:

“Knowing what we know as headhunters, if we found ourselves unemployed and competing for jobs in a shrinking market, what would we do RIGHT NOW?”

Or more to the point:

“How would we skip the soul-crushing job-search process, position our backgrounds as the perfect solution to the challenges business leaders face in these uncertain times, and get in front of front of as many hiring executives as possible in as short of a time-frame as possible…?”

“…AND how would we then set appointments with those decision-makers not as just simply applicants, but as problem-solvers?”

Then we asked one final question:

“Why couldn’t we teach this to candidates?”

…and that’s how The Career Hunters was born.
