What is Executive Search?Executive Search Consultant - Recruiter - Headhunter
On the website of Jobadder we find the following definition: (Quote): "... An executive search is an employment search that is undertaken in order to find candidates to fill executive roles, or other positions of equivalent seniority.
This search is usually conducted by executive search firms on behalf of a third party company. The advantage of an executive search being performed by an executive search firm is that the firm can undertake an initial screening of the candidate and confirm if they are suitable for the role and ascertain what their remuneration expectations before putting them in touch with the company.
As executive searches target highly qualified and desirable candidates, ideal candidates are sometimes already employed and are best approached by executive search firms in order to glean information about their interest in leaving their current role for a new opportunity....".

Cologne's Love Locks Bridge
Cologne is Germany's fourth largest city and a cultural capital of the Rhineland.
We would like to share an article we found on www.atlasobscura.com about the "Love Padlocks" on the Hohenzollern Bridge:
If that same collection were actually created organically by thousands of unrelated individuals, that sense of awe can increase a thousandfold. And so does the fun.
Case in point: the wall of “Love Padlocks” on display on the Hohenzollernbrücke bridge in Cologne, Germany, painstakingly created piece by piece as an endless stream of couples have come to publicly honor their love. Thousands of padlocks now hang from the railings of the bridge, each inscribed, painted, or otherwise decorated by the couple that hung it.
40,000 padlocks hang on the bridge to date – a shocking number considering that the tradition only started in 2008. That means 40,000 couples – 80,000 individuals in all – have participated in this fast-growing, spontaneous collection. The padlocks have added over 2 tons of weight to the bridge, causing local officials to question how long the practice can be sustained.
But for now, the burgeoning wall of padlocks is enchanting – though not nearly as enchanting as the actual tradition of hanging one. A happy couple, hopelessly enthralled by their own affection, brings an open padlock to the bridge, prepared to mark it with their names and clasp it permanently into the collection, symbolizing the strength of their attachment to one another.
And to symbolize the everlasting nature of their love, the key is dropped over the edge, tumbling far below into the eternal waters of the river Rhine.
All to say, as impressive as the collection of padlocks is, perhaps the more intriguing collection – and almost certainly the longer-lasting one – are the tens of thousands of tiny keys that now line the riverbed of the mighty Rhine.
This is a trend that seems to be catching on the world over - similar bridgescapes can now be seen in Edinburgh, Paris, Moscow, London, and Leeds.
