Why would a high caliber individual who has a great job jump ship?

I receive a regular email from Kennedy Information each week which has interesting articles on the Recruitment Industry including Trends, Ideas, Stories, etc...

This morning I received the email as normal and immediately clicked to the following article.

The link to the site is: Landing Talent: Keeping Focused on Both the Emotional and Analytical Elements

It is an article by Vicki Pachera and the title that got me immediately interested was the line "Why would a high caliber individual who has a great job jump ship?"

When I work with my managers we are always looking for the best people for our roles, and when I in turn talk to people this article reminded me that it is not just about $$$$ or Title of a role that gets people to change jobs. I think when approaching people about a potential role, you need to find out what a person's circumstances are and what the plan is for themselves from a work perspective and otherwise. In talking to people in detail like this it is then that you can see if a role may be of interest to them and see if your current opportunities fit what they are looking for.

There are so many opportunities at Oracle, the right one may not exist for a person today, but I cannot count the number of times I have called somebody back after 1, 2, 6, 12 months etc... as the ideal role has come up for them at a later date.

Finding a new role needs to be a collaborative effort. I think the role needs to fit the candidate as much as the candidate needs to fit the role and it is in talking to people that we get to put that fit together.

So if I am talking to you about work with us, don't be shy to tell me your aspirations, plans and goals - we may have a role that helps get you there.
