I’m shocked by how many people are not even willing to listen to what I have to offer when I contact them regarding a new career opportunity.
Why wouldn’t you at least listen?
This could be an opportunity to advance your career, take on a new responsibility, boost your pay scale, etc. Something.
Even if the timing is off and you are in no position to move, why not hear more so you can refer your friends or contacts who may be looking?
At the very least, why not listen so that we can establish a connection and keep in touch for future opportunities?
Tell me why.
