Talk to headhunters specializing in CIO searches and they all say the same thing. If you're good, we'll find you. Maybe so. But for CIOs or would-be CIOs whose phones are not ringing off the hook, SearchCIO thought it might be useful to ask about <A HREF="http://searchcio.techtarget.com/news/article/0,289142,sid182_gci1326433,00.html?track=sy183">the dos and don'ts of getting on a recruiter's radar.</A>
The question is increasingly relevant to the IT profession. The SearchCIO.com annual survey of enterprise CIOs and IT managers found that while 38% found their current job through a personal network, 30% worked with a recruiter to land that job. Even for CIOs not looking to move, headhunters SearchCIO interviewed said there are ways you can make yourself useful that will pay dividends down the line and mistakes that can, well, put you in the doghouse forever.
