When a recruiter calls

Here is my tip of the day:

When a recruiter calls you and asks if you are interested in a new opportunity. You should always say - yes I am providing it proves to be an enhancement over what it is I do today. The recruiter is going to say "Fantastic" and then ask you some questions about your background and then tell you a little about the position he or she is recruiting for.

Every smart person should be interested in something better and by saying yes, you are opening up to have a good investigative conversation. It does not mean that you are ready to go into your manager's office and resign.

Always be open to a conversation about your next opportunity. I guarantee your boss has the same attitude.
