You’re not ready to change jobs, so you don’t see any percentage in talking to a recruiter. What you could be missing, if you don’t, is confidence from knowing that you really are in the right place.

If you could see that forest, you’d start to see how:
- There’s opportunity cost associated with following any path, no matter how good it looks and feels. If you’ve ruled out a career move, you probably figure the cost is worth it. You might be right. Wouldn’t it feel better to know you’re right?
- When you’re neck-deep in research and models, thoughts about what would be expected of you five years from now in your BV career don’t even cross your mind. If you knew more about what those expectations were, wouldn’t you begin to adjust so you’re prepared to meet them?
- Not knowing you could have options, or what they might be, can leave you paralyzed when it comes to action to improve your career. Just like with a medical or legal issue, getting informed input about those options can help you make smarter choices.
We have talked to BV professionals since 1995. We have watched career paths develop and change. We get to see the forest.
You should be asking yourself why you’re not taking advantage of that perspective. Contact us to start that conversation.
