The question can throw you for a loop. “Why are you leaving?” You know it…

There’s a mindset that talking to a recruiter equals changing jobs. In other words, if you’re not in a job-change mode, why take time to talk to a recruiter? For a different picture, check out this testimonial from a successful BV professional.
I have known John and relied on him for career perspective since 2010. Over the 5+ years I have known John, I have grown to sincerely trust his advice and counsel. In 2013, John helped me make a great career move, but our professional association has not been simply transactional. He has provided value to me in my career above and beyond the one-time assistance in switching employers. John always warmly takes my calls and offers experienced perspective, even when I am not calling about a career change that will help him earn a buck.
For example, I recently was feeling frustrated by the slow pace of promotions at my current employer. I like the team I work with and feel that I am on a good track long term, but I also want to make sure I am progressing in my career. So, I called John up to get his thoughts on my career path and get his outlook and advice.
John listened and was able to provide sound advice with added color around my current financial situation and scope of responsibilities vs. other opportunities at my experience level. He reassured me that I am actually in a great place. He then gave me some pointers to prepare for a conversation with my boss about getting that promotion I felt I deserved. The conversation was very beneficial, and I truly appreciated John’s candor and helpful feedback.
