We hear from candidates every week who want to improve their careers but are just not sure how to go about doing it.
The approach to changing roles should be two-pronged – active and passive.
ACTIVE: Identifying companies you want to investigate further. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to work for a competitor that’s just doing it better or has an exciting cutting-edge technology. Regardless, our contacts can likely get you an introduction to a hiring manager.
ACTIVE: Use your network. Look at your former employers, think back to those who know your work and let them know you are open to taking your skill set to a new company.
PASSIVE: Post your resume to job boards.
PASSIVE: Be open with your recruiter about the criteria needed to make a move.
PASSIVE: Update your social media.
Our candidates at TKG consistently tell us they feel good about working with us whether actively or just passively looking. We put our 28 years in business to work for you – connecting you with the right opportunities, making introductions, assisting throughout the entire recruiting process and negotiating the best offer for you. ALL FOR FREE. Reach out to us today!

Great advice, I would like to get back into pharma, I see diagnostics vulnerable and will wind up in the same rut.
I am not too happy in the lab environment and see many of my colleagues and friends with dead end roles, declining in success. GPO’s, hospitals in many cases going bankrupt.
QC is going to be solely Bio Rad. They have over 90% of the global business.
That said I could use advice on how to explain the decisions that I made leaving Thermo, and then the brief tenure with Technopath.
I would like guidance Lyn. Maybe some words of wisdom how to move forward.
Thanks for reaching out, Andie. We will be in touch!
