Last month I had the chance to go to NY for a few days for business. I took the chance to contact a headhunter specialized in my field and had an interview. I think it went pretty well. She told me I needed to have a website with my bio and showreel so I am working on it.
I actually told her that NY is my ideal but that I am open to any other place in the world that means a challenge and a move forward in my career.
I think I should e-mail her again soon so she has me in her mind. If my website takes much longer, I will e-mail her before it is ready.
I am also beginning to contact other people I know. Today I spoke with a friend I’ve known for many years who lives in London and has many many contacts himself. He gave me some good advice. It was great to talk to him. 5 months ago
I need to start looking for a job. However, what conflicts me is that I do have a job here and I don’t wanna jeopardize it until I have something new. I did that once (quit my job before finding a new one) and it didn’t work out well for me.
I think the best thing to do is to find a headhunter that can do a search for me. For that, I need to update my resume, which I haven’t done in over 5 years now.
I will do it this weekend so I can start somewhere.
I actually did a list of the people I should contact myself but these are all currently clients or partners so it is not easy to approach them while I am still at my current position…
That’s how I decided I should start with a headhunter. I will. 8 months ago
sadly, things are getting pretty ugly in my country… so I really feel this is the moment to put the energy on this goal. I want to live abroad for a while, New York is my ideal but I know it’s gonna be hard to find a job. I will sure try, though. I’ve got a double citizenship, argentinean – italian… so it would be much easier for me to move to Europe but I really want to live in NY for a while so I’m gonna start looking into that direction. Then, if I can’t get a job there, I will look into my chances in Europe.
One of the reasons why I wanna live in NY is because I want to study Design at Parsons… it would be great to be able to do both things, live and study in NY. Wish me luck! 9 months ago
