Have you ever been offered a job without applying for it?

I've only added a few options to the poll, feel free to add as many more reasons in the comments.


Also, include how they found you and why they wanted you.

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I think this is pretty common for sales savages that have built broader networks. The real problem is deciding if you want that job or not.

Always a real problem. There are so many variables to compare, and conversations to have.ย  That said, it's also always good to know that if a pivot is necessary, there will be one available.

I've been offered 2 positions where one I was happy where I was and while greener pastures are tempting, if you have a good thing it's almost always better to stick with it...the other was a management position that I was not in the right mindset/life place for at the time.

Personal/professional network is the most important thing to cultivate and feed to find the best opportunities over time in my book

A couple times, if you're counting being straight on recruited to a role.ย  They found me each time via Linkedin, referral or a combination.ย ย
