Are you looking for a permanent or interim role in the corporate, not-for-profit and/or public sector? Is your goal salary above $250k and have you been working for 15+ years? Are you getting stuck at some stage of the recruitment and selection process? If you answered yes to these questions, please watch the recording of Watermark’s first webinar of 2022 with guest speaker, Renata Bernarde. Renata highlighted “Understanding and capitalising on the executive recruitment landscape in 2022”.


The key messages of the webinar are as below:

  • What we know is true about the job market in 2022

    • The corporate workforce has become more casualised

    • Employees hold the balance for power…for now

    • Digital is here to stay. Digital is king. Get used to it

    • This is the new normal and it will last a decade

    • In a few years, the skills you need to do the job you have will have changed almost completely

  • Attitudinal change that leads to career success

    • Act now – applying for jobs strategically and using information from past applications to finesse future applications

    • Mindset shift – your attitude will shape your beliefs, your beliefs will shape your job search

    • Be future-focused – building long term relationships with recruiters and head hunters you meet along the way is how you develop a long term career plan that leads you to your most important goals

  • The seven deadly sins that are sabotaging your career

    • Waiting until you need a job to invest in your career

    • Just searching for jobs online and sending online applications

    • Doing your resume only once

    • Thinking recruitment and selection starts once you have a job interview booked

    • Staying stuck in planning mode or stuck on seek.com

    • Waiting until your resume/LinkedIn is ready before starting your job search

    • Spending your time trying to do more and more job applications and forgetting to nurture your connections

  • The biggest mistake of all in job-hunting

    • NOT REALISING YOU ARE IN A COMPETITION
