"The effects of an increasingly digitized world have an impact on careers the world over. Accumulating vast amounts of data is one thing, extracting actionable insights quite another. This creates new career opportunities for analytical professionals in all industries. I focus on financial and commercial vacancies. When I started at Top of Minds Executive Search in Amsterdam, I already had 4 years of experience within the recruitment industry. In my experience, game-changing professionals with a penchant for data are looking for challenges where they can learn new things. To figure out what it is each candidate wants to learn, you have to get to know them personally and understand where they stand in their career. The next step is inspiring them by showing them the different routes they could take from there. Our close cooperation with e-commerce and online companies gives us the background information we need in order to inform and enthuse candidates."
