The Essentials: Job & Career Advice

A collection of Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison’s best insights about finding the right role.

The unemployment rate hasn’t been this low since the 1960s and the number of job openings is near record highs. At the same time, there are some signs that the job market, which has been growing steadily for years, could be heading for a slowdown soon.

In the latest edition of Korn Ferry Essentials, CEO Gary Burnison breaks down what workers can do now, while the market is decent, to improve their chances at landing a job they really want. It’ll take a little bit more than a good resume (although he’ll show you what’s on a good one). Burnison breaks down how to ask for advice, build a professional network, avoid interview-killing mistakes, and more.
